 Replying to [comment:11 bleeter]:
 > Before private matters really got in the way last year I had hoped to do
 some stuffs one this.
 > I'd say this is a more general privacy thing than just WinPidgin. I seem
 to recall that there are patches around for Finch to operate OTR*. Hence
 I've changed the component from WinPidgin to Privacy, but left it assigned
 to datallah for now.
 > *Personally, I'd humbly submit Finch running OTR would probably be the
 most likely to be most secure - the surface area of attack could be far
 less. And I think this is the point where I fell off the edge, waiting for
 confirmation it was all 'working'. I should look back through the OTR-dev
 mail logs...

 Thanks for your reply, I think it's important to note that the average
 user won't be using finch but will be using Pidgin for their chatting,
 this is why we would love to see this work in Pidgin!

 What is required to have it included and be merged with master?
