Please package the BitlBee 3.2 release for rawhide/F19 and please consider an F18 upgrade as well. BitlBee 3.2 adds support for the new JSON-based Twitter API 1.1 which Twitter will require to connect to their service starting on March 5th 2013, i.e. Twitter support will break in Fedora 18's BitlBee on that date.
3.2 also adds highly desirable new features like direct message support on Twitter.

update looks simple enough packaging-wise, get to drop a few upstreamed patches (always good).
Rex, in theory that's right. But when looking deeper, this is not correct.
However, thank you very much for the patch...I merged some of the hunks that
Additionally, upstream decided to require glib2 >= 2.14, which would exclude
EPEL 5 completely. Technically they only need this more recent glib2 version
due to their programming lazyness (sorry!) and the wish to use regexps for
URL length detection for the Twitter stuff. As the current used Twitter API
is anyway going to break soon, I decided to drop Twitter support for EPEL 5,
till either upstream can be couraged to re-implement that code (which is not
likely as from what I got told on the IRC) or if somebody else provides a
nice portable piece of code. Again, affects only EPEL 5 - no other branch!
