I welcome corrections from someone with more legal accumen, but as a  
first-pass thought: I don't think the Skype API can be used in a  
program licensed under the GPL (and possibly not under any open source  
license).  It requires agreement to the Skype End User Agreement by  
the utilizing party, which is claimed to be non-transferrable / non- 
sublicensable, but the final code would need to be freely transferrable.

That said, you could certainly still distribute your own plugin at  
your own risk and discuss the bounty with the parties who are offering  
it. (Note that the bounty in question has been offered up by users in  
an Adium Trac ticket, not by the project itself or by anyone  
affiliated with it).
