What kind of comments are you looking for? And why did you restate all
of John's response to you as a new email thread?
We do not maintain a lot of plugins as part of Pidgin. OTR in
particular has a community of efforts to bring OTR support to various IM
clients, many of which do not ship the feature directly.
We have considered a relationship with the OTR plugin developers, which
has been discussed on the development mailing list and our
tracker, but nothing is finalized yet.
