Someone was interested in Pidgin 2.2.2... well it looks like I've gotten it to build, for SLED 10 anyway. I still have to add a BuildRequires for the spec file so that SSL support will be compiled in (for MSN), but I'm running it right now and it connects to everything other than MSN it looks like. I have added "BuildRequired: gutls-devel" to the spec file; we'll see if that gets MSN SSL support going (according to http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/FAQssl it should...)
I will add an openSUSE 10.3 repo and see if I can get that rpm to build as well.
The repo I have right now is here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ericgearhart:/Pidgin/SLE_10/
