-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
First of all, thanks for giving us Pidgin -- I really love it, and use
it already some years now. (When it still was called gaim.)
However, recently I got interested in voice/video in addition to text,
but I also want to be end-to-end encrypted for privacy reasons.
Unfortunately, Pidgin does not yet support ZRTP (see also ).
So I'm forced to use Jitsi just for my video conversations, which is a
bit unfortunate as I like Pidgin much better and it also seems to be
much more stable in general for me.
As the above ticket already mentions, there seems to be already a ZRTP
library out there that could be used ... and judging by the comments,
this is a feature also others would like so see in Pidgin.
What is the current status about this issue, are there plans to
implement ZRTP? If not, I would be willing to tackle this on my own
and volunteer to look into it.
I do have some experience with other big free software projects (GNU
Guile, GNU Octave and gfortran), but not (yet) with XMPP, ZRTP or the
Pidgin code-base. Do you think that would still be a feasible project
to tackle? Would you be interested in adding ZRTP support? And would
you give me a helping hand from time to time should I really attempt
this and have questions regarding the code-base?
BTW, is this something that could/should be implemented as plugin
rather than a native patch (like OTR)? I have not yet looked into the
plugin API of Pidgin, either, though.
Thanks for your input! I would really love to get ZRTP support for
Pidgin -- then I would no longer have to switch to Jitsi from time to
time, because Pidgin would (again) have every single feature I need.
