Spent this afternoon building the packages for Fedora Extras that are needed for Gossip. Overall, Gossip is a pretty cool Jabber client, though I definitely could use the spell-checker that’s being added in the next release. Now that Apple has added Jabber support to iChat, I can hopefully look at using only Jabber in the future.
I’ve also started to package Galago, which is a framework that monitors IM presense. It’s pretty cool, in that it ties-in IM presense in applications such as Evolution, and could very easily be added to other applications. Unfortunately, I’m having problems with compiling it under the current Fedora development packages (FC4), so I’ll be spending some time over the next fews days ironing out those bugs.
