SoC 2015 Students Announced

I'm the student for the project of porting changes from Intantbird's
libpurple to Pidgin's

I've got one question to talk about:
Could I start working with libpurple 2.10.12? There are several reasons:
instantbird is using libpurple 2.10.9 (waiting for moving on to 2.10.11); I
have some issues compiling 3.0.0 still, and once I got it compiled (without
GPlugin), It wasn't very stable (crashed after some secs).
Actually, I think there are not big changes from 2.10.x to 3.0.0 on
libpurple; so I guess there is no problem in working on a 2.10.12 branch of
mine and after doing a merge with 3.0.0
