Hey you!

Apparently I didn't look close enough because I couldn't find any documentation, nor could I find sourcecode. After your comment, I looked back and was ashamed to find out everything was there.

Also I probably made the mistake to add the .so file in the /usr/lib/pidgin/ directory instead of the /usr/lib/purple-2/ directory. No wonder it was not picked up by pidgin...

I am interested in packaging it for RHEL/CentOS, but I wonder whether to call it pidgin-skype, purple-skype or libpurple-skype. The latter one is probably more correct but less obvious to users.

Also, I prefer if source archives are versioned otherwise buildsystems have no way to make sure they are using the correct version.

I just tested it here and it seems to work fine (I have no contacts online currently so limited testing). What is missing though is the protocol icon. I guess that needs to be installed as well (although it would be nice if it could look for it in the usual places ?).

I will blog about it when I have it packaged :-)

Thanks for your work :-)
