Description Răzvan Sandu 2007-05-11 05:57:17 UTC
Description of problem:

The Gaim package changed name(for legal reasons). It is called Pidgin now and it
arrived at version (stable).

A text version (console) is available too, under the name Finch.

Since Pidgin is the default and most complete IM solution for Linux (as far as I
 know), please provide RPM packages for FC6 and FC7.

The new RPM packages should obsolete previous Gaim packages, upgrading/removing

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

How reproducible:

Actual results:
Pidgin and Finch RPM packages doesn't exist for FC6 and FC7 (as Updates).

Expected results:
Pidgin and Finch RPM packages should be included, obsoleting the old ones.
