We discussed this on IRC, and here's a mail to try to summarize the change in the default configuration of pidgin people might want. Please comment since I'm not a pidgin user, so I can't really know what's good or not.
- always visible in the notification area
- never open new windows unexpectedly
- no sound by default
- enable log (for im & chat?)
Maybe preconfigured Zeroconf IM. For small companies it can be a nice solution.
Are there some other changes we want?
Also, from a packaging point of view: looking at the code, it seems we can have initial values at /etc/purple/prefs.xml. This file will be read when the user has no preferences (so only the first time pidgin is run, I guess). That's not as powerful as gconf, but I don't think we want to patch pidgin to use gconf. So we'll ship such a file in pidgin-branding-openSUSE. But I guess this means we need an empty pidgin-branding-upstream?
Quick & dirty package: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=pidgin-branding-openSUSE&...
Actually, it's not dirty ;-) Just need an opinion about what to do for pidgin-branding-upstream. Stanislav?
Nothing. We could just make branding package optional, not adding Requires to pidgin package, only Supplements packageand(...) to the branding package.
