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:
This would get rid of a second buddy list thus freeing screen space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
AOL: Screen Name
Yahoo: Screen Name
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.
Red Hat will follow upstream.
