you mention the extremely long development time of pidgin is partly due to the fact that all your developers are not that interested in features such as video call/teleconferencing, etc. i'd just like to point out that if you are to be a serious contender in the im market, their likes/dislikes mean nothing. this is business and if people that work on the project (even if they're volunteers) cannot meet this commitment, then you should withdraw your product from the market as 'unsupportable'. don't get me wrong... i love pidgin. but without features to help me conduct business on a daily basis, it is worthless. i hope your developers will realize that if they're going to compete in a major marketplace, they need to push their personal preferences aside, because they are producing a product for the market, not themselves.
