Description of problem:
The RPM summary and description should be updated from gaim.spec in
the upstream package.  The current summary and description are
misleading as they only state that gaim is a clone of AOL Instant
Messenger.  In reality gaim is now a multiprotocol IM client.

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

I concur.  Please update the description before the next FC1 update. 
Here is a reminder.

So what should it say, do you think?
Comment 3 Nathan Fredrickson 2004-02-12 14:06:41 EST
The %description from upstream would be a big improvement:

Gaim allows you to talk to anyone using a variety of messaging
protocols, including AIM (Oscar and TOC), ICQ, IRC, Yahoo!,
MSN Messenger, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, Napster, and Zephyr.  These
protocols are implemented using a modular, easy to use design.
To use a protocol, just add an account using the account editor.
Gaim supports many common features of other clients, as well as many
unique features, such as perl scripting, TCL scripting and C plugins.
Gaim is NOT affiliated with or endorsed by America Online, Inc.,
Microsoft Corporation, Yahoo! Inc., or ICQ Inc.

What about for the summary?
Comment 5 Nathan Fredrickson 2004-02-12 21:22:07 EST
Summary: A Gtk+ based multiprotocol instant messaging client

This is also from the upstream spec file that is available here:
