I deal with companies that have to follow regulations from the SEC and
NASD. Two plugins I have been working on for pidgin is a simple
Disclaimer plugin (which works fine) and a "Send Logs" plugin for
emailing the IM logs to a reporting email address. For certain
companies these are regulations that must be followed or they could be
fined. The pidgin team has done a great job with the look and feel of
pidgin and I would like to push my clients to it.
I was wondering if there was a way to enforce a plugin to be enabled?
I realize that this kind of goes against the definition of a "plugin"
but it seems the simplest way to enable this option without me mucking
about in the nuts and bolts of Pidgin. Perhaps in the future there
might be a way to include corporate policies via a protected shared
preferences file? This way an administrator could set certain
preferences that override users preferences?
Other than that do you have any suggestions that I can kind of hack
the plugin to always be enabled?
