#16140: Make config files source controllable
 Reporter:  boris-petrov  |      Owner:
     Type:  enhancement   |     Status:  new
Milestone:                |  Component:  libpurple
  Version:  2.10.9        |   Keywords:  config configuration settings
 Config files (most notable blist.xml, accounts.xml and prefs.xml) include
 stuff like passwords, last seen date for buddies, etc. This prevents
 people from saving these configuration files in source control systems as
 they change all the time.

 If it's possible, it would be really nice to split this variable and
 sensitive data in different files so the main configuration (buddies,
 groups, accounts, settings) could be saved independently and kept under
 source control.
