I'm willing to make a stab at maintaining telepathy-gabble, hopefully I can 
find someone else from kde-telepathy to help.

On the downside my knowledge of glib code is still pretty weak. Also I don't 
currently know how to trigger releases on freedesktop and would like to know 
if there's somewhere to go for advice working with freedesktop's 
infrastructure (such as it is). Lastly I don't think my freedesktop developer 
account has been approved yet. 

However on the plus side, I want desktop IM to still exist, and I'd like to 
make sure that code that's incorporated actually has working tests. 

While investigating merging the code I ran the wocky tests and discovered they 
seem to fail both in the new branch and also in the version of telepathy-
gabble released in debian.

Also are there still maintainers for the Telepathy DBus spec?  I think several 
protocols (including XMPP) have ways to support editing already sent messages, 
and I don't think I've seen an API for that.
