Description Debarshi Ray 2017-07-13 08:58:08 EDT
Pidgin upstream has removed support for MySpace because it doesn't work anymore. See: https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/www/src/tip/htdocs/ChangeLog?fileviewer=file-view-default

It says:

* Remove the Yahoo! protocol plugin. Yahoo has completely
  reimplemented their protocol, so this version is no longer operable as
  of August 5th, 2016:

  A new protocol plugin has been written to support the new protocol.
  It can be found here: https://github.com/EionRobb/funyahoo-plusplus
  This also removes support for Yahoo! Japan. According to
  http://messenger.yahoo.co.jp/ the service ended March 26th, 2014.

Let's do the same to reduce the total code surface exposed to security attacks.
