My name is Valentina Manea and I'm a second year Computer Science
student. I would like to participate in this year's Google Summer of
Code as a developer for Pidgin.
I believe that an important missing feature is Yahoo!-like photo
sharing. While I do not believe that I can reverse-engineer the Yahoo!
Messenger protocol to enable a Pidgin client to use photo sharing while
communicating to a Yahoo! client, I have some ideas to do such a thing
between two Pidgin clients.
I have considered several options, each with pros and cons, and I think
the most feasible option is to implement a plugin to "piggyback" the
photo sharing traffic over the supported protocols.
Do you think this might be a good idea for a GSoC project?
