Tim,
Heh, I think we both score well in in the lack of time and motivation.
Good to hear from you. It'd seem to me that it's still the old story
that people requesting these features don't realise how complex and time
consuming it is. I'm contemplating joining the fray again after 2.0 is
out and Sean commits. 10/10 to Sean for sticking with it in any shape or
form. It's definitely one of the more thankless tasks in gaim
development from the user-land request point of view.

Regards,

Pete.

I do understand that is probably complex to implement, and definetely not an easy task.
I also understand that students that apply for such as project might not have enough knowledge to
design on their own the API needed, but why not taking in consideration valid students, that are willing
to work all summer (and maybe more), locked in their room (as somebody said in the channel ;-) ) , on this
project? Maybe not on the whole thing, but the project I think could be modularized, so that students could
produce useful code by the end of the summer. I don't think it would be a totally waisting of time.

Salvo.
