           Summary: Do on-disk avatar cache in CM
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: tp-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: xclaesse at gmail.com
         QAContact: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

In the current situation, when a contact's avatar is updated, all clients (via
telepathy-glib and telepathy-qt4) interested in the image will call
RequestAvatars() then save it on-disk at the same location. So we have to make
sure our write operation is atomic.

I think it would be faster and more convenient to save the avatar in cache
inside the CM, then give the filename to clients.

I know this is breaking the hypothetical case where AM/CM are running on
another machine, but does that really matter?

This is similar to bug #33409 asking it for Account.
