I can't speak for either of them, but I'm not at all worried about appropriate recognition---really anything is fine. Much more important is having a good relationship with you and the Pidgin team so we can work together for this and future security-related patches.

Thank you Ethan! I agree with Dan, we are pretty low-key. I am happy with something simple like a note in the commit log saying something like "based on a bug report and/or patch from EFF" or the like.
