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.
