My name is Artem Drach, I'm an undergraduate in one of technical
universities in Ukraine.
I'd like to ask you, what do you think about porting Pidgin/libpurple
to Android as a GSoC project?
It's a good piece of work, and a guy started doing it here .
As far as I see, apart from technical challenges there may be a
mentoring one. In fact, this project wouldn't contribute to the Pidgin
code base. It looks like a separate project with all mobile platform
details and porting difficulties. What do you think, is it worth to
start going in depth creating an estimate and a proof-of-concept? If
it's ok, I'll ask a guy from  for his plans, maybe tomorrow we'll
see a finished project from him :)
