The debian/sid branch already has a telepathy-resiprocate package
It is currently stuck in the NEW queue because each time a new package
name is added to debian/control, it needs to be approved by the FTP
Notice I also raised a bug against the gnome desktop package:
and if you have time to look into that issue or discuss it with the
GNOME maintainers it would also help a lot. Currently people can't just
do "dpkg --purge telepathy-rakia" because of that dependency issue.
