Being open source is not a necessary condition for writing plugins.
Being open source means that you can also modify the core code and
distribute it under the same legal terms as the original. (Also, not
all open source programs have a plugin architecture.)

Obviously you need to be a competent programmer and a good knowledge of
C is advisable. Beyond that, look at http://developer.pidgin.im/.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
