Well, nobody ever told me about this, so how should I know? I had  
some troubles with learning mtn, which wasn't part of my project at  
all, so I was happy when I got it to work at least in some way.
Additionally, unlike the Adium commits, I don't get any info about  
those of the pidgin mtn, so I don't know what happened after my  
branch was created.

Most Adium devs don't use IM very extensively (yes, I know this is  
rather weird), and my mentor doesn't administer any XMPP server to  
test on. I'm running two of those myself (Openfire and ejabberd), but  
I can't spot everything. Having more than 1 or 2 people using it is  
the only way to find bugs.

That's not true. They can depend on each other, but they can't have  
the same goal.

The plan was to merge them after SoC is done, which will happen in  
mid-August, no matter the state of the individual branches before that.
