 Replying to [comment:2 khmerkid87]:
 > I was planning to start trying to port this over to android. I wanted to
 know if this was feasible for someone who is well versed in java and some
 C. But will be my first time attempting to code in Android. Also I wanted
 to know if there was any licensing issues that I would have to overcome
 before starting?

 Most of the code in Pidgin/libpurple is licensed under GPL v2+.  There are
 a few files that have separate licenses (and I think I heard someone say
 that the oscar prpl code is LGPL), but the resultant binary is GPL2+, so
 your program must be licensed under a GPL-compatible license.
