Description Jason 2005-04-08 13:27:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
Please the add ability to have all of my IM accounts listed on one buddy list.  Right now I have two buddy lists open (one for AOL, one for yahoo).  It would be nice if the buddy had a layout like:
AOL: screenname
   Friend 1 
   Friend 2

Yahoo: screenname
   Friend 1
   Friend 2

This would get rid of a second buddy list thus freeing screen space.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install two or more accounts
2. try to use all the accounts at once

Actual Results:  multiple buddy lists are on the screen

Expected Results:  one buddy list

I am sorry I forgot a level on the proposed layout

Buddy List
AOL: Screen Name
   Group 1
      Friend 1
      Friend 2
      Friend 3
   Group 2
      Friend 4

Yahoo: Screen Name
   Group 1
      Friend 1
      Friend 2
   Group 2
      Friend 3
      Friend 4

1)functionality already exists. go to tools->accounts and set both to sign on

2)proposed layout is rejected.  we use a global concept of groups, and the
buddies from both accounts will be mixed in those groups. this allows greater
flexibility for users, a simpler interface, and is more in lines with our
attempt to abstract away from the protocols.

ps, I am speaking as upstream in rejecting, not as RH. 

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-04-08 18:20:01 UTC
Red Hat will follow upstream.
