Description Mike McGrath 2007-04-08 05:10:44 UTC
Looks like there are legal issues with the name 'gaim' and they're renaming it.


Comment 1 Warren Togami 2007-04-09 04:43:49 UTC
Renaming will happen in Fedora only after there is an official upstream release
using the new name, which is not yet.

Comment 2 Răzvan Sandu 2007-05-11 06:08:55 UTC
Pidgin arrived at version (stable) and has been oficially released.

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

Please publish updated RPM packages for FC6 that will obsolete the old Gaim.
