Regarding linking to I know
our policy in the past has been to not link to packages built by
people not "affiliated" with our project.  I'm ok with changing that.
Maybe linking to the packages with a note along the lines of: "These
packages are unofficial and fairly new.  You're welcome to try them
('at your own risk'?).  Please email Nicholas and cc devel at
with any problems."

That would make it possible for people we don't know to package
Pidgin, and after a while we'll be able to trust them more and
eventually remove that note.
