 Hey Pidgin Team,

 I just started a new semester at college studying computer science, which
 allows me to work on my own project for the next 10 weeks, so I've decided
 to help you guys out. One of the things I've noticed over the last year or
 two of using Pidgin is that MSN support isn't that great at all. Important
 features such as file transfers, contact pictures, and custom emoticons
 are broken, and tickets to fix these have been open for a long time. Since
 most of the developers of Pidgin seem to have a busy life, it seems like a
 good time for me te step in and contribute.

 So in the upcomming weeks I'm going to do my best to analyse MSNP18 and
 implement it into libpurple, something I think a lot of people have been
 looking forward to. I will be mostly focussing on the core on the
 protocol, and getting p2p transfers working again. After that I'll focus
 on the Groups feature in MSNP18 which has been requested by quite a lot of
 people, and when I have time left audio and video conferencing would be
 nice too.

 I'm really thrilled about working on this project and working with the
 Pidgin community. I hope I can make a useful contribution to this project.
