Patrick: If you are interested in working on this, I'd recommend you
look into picking up libzephyr maintenance upstream, so we can get
libzephyr out of libpurple and always depend on a separate libzephyr.
Debian has a separate libzephyr package , which is based on a
snapshot from MIT dated 2001-05-18 . They have a non-trivial diff
, not all of which is Debian-related from a quick scan. Getting those
diffs as well as anything in libpurple merged into a new upstream would
really be great.
I'm dealing with a Zephyr bug right now (#1635) . Like every time I
have to deal with one, I think about killing this prpl. I can't test any
changes I make, which is poor. I'd really like to see someone who
actually uses Zephyr to step up to maintain this prpl, or I vote for
killing it in 3.0.0 .
