I think he means that KTP is (IMO needlessly) spread over a big number of
packages.

no, i mean they are a dependency mess:

the package that contains the kcm module that is used to add IM accounts
requires libpurple, but the package that contains the parts for videocalls
requires a gstreamer module that is incompatible with libpurple... how can
that even happen with two subpackages that are being built from the same spec
file?

add to that the fact that the names of the packages do not tell the average
user which ones to install to get a working messenger solution, and you get a
"humunguous mess".

Last I checked, Skype integration did not work with KTP.

I didn't even get that far in my tests...


KTP should definitively be part of the official repos. Whether to install it
by default or not is a bit too early to decide. The current version is IMO
not fit for being default. That may change with upcoming versions.

lets hope so. what is definitely needed for a multiprotocol messenger of any
kind (and a de-facto standard) are metacontacts.

right now ktp is nice to play with, but for my day to day contacting people
i'll stick with kopete for a while longer.


bye,
MH
