Sipe is good! Thanks.
I just wanted to say that I have never seen a finer example of digital office than Office 365.
Works really well. It'd be nice though if there was a binary distro available for Windows users. Getting a build going from source on Windows is a pain.
This plug-in is well-developed, and more than suits a need, it attempts to integrate all the functions of the parent software in a way that is meaningful and useful for those using it as an alternative to the OEM client. Highly responsive developers (pier11 is awesome), and a good user base mean that updates are a good mix of enhancements and fixes. I never hear that someone doesn't have the time to work on something. I never have to wait long for a fix or an enhancement to go to production. Users don't have to kvell over the software before they can get help. Users ask intelligent questions and give good feedback to developers. It's really a good project with an approachable community.
Works great on RHEL5. Both Pidgin and this plugin compiled from source. I used the following 'configure' options/script to compile SIPE plugin. I had to experiment a bit to get these right, since this is on a machine where I do not have root privileges and cannot have latest of all the prerequisites : http://gist.github.com/246508. Hope this helps the only 'thumbs down' reviewer!
Works perfectly. Great work! I'm using the precompiled version 1.7.0-1 from the Ubuntu PPA archive: https://launchpad.net/~aavelar/+archive/ppa
