Hmm, I do question why we need another project name and page - I'm quite
happy for all the KDE work to be done under the Telepathy banner, and
using the same resources.
But if you insist on having this KDE/rest of world split, then can we at
least put all the common stuff on telepathy.freedesktop.org? (e.g.
state diagrams, mission control specs, etc.)
Also, some more discussion would be appropriate - it seems to be all the
use cases and sequence chats are very wrong - and these are all cases
that we've well analysed and have been implemented already. *In
particular* mission controls job is *NOT* to act as an intermediatary
for all communication - this is madness -5 context switches to find out
anything at all!! At the most basic level, all a mission control needs
to do is manage account details, launch connection managers, and handle
incoming channel requests, launching the appropriate handlers based on
To be slightly more positive, If you guys can come talk a bit more,
getting some real sequence diagrams and state charts together that
actually document reality would be very very useful to all concerned.
Right now I'm working on getting a nicer looking page up on fd.o, just
waiting for moin 1.5 to get installed.. ;)
