No single legal person owns Pidgin. Whilst I'm not familiar with the
sort of agreement you are talking about, I rather suspect no-one would
have the authority to sign it.
I'd also note that the OTR support is a third party plugin, so not
covered by this mailing list. Also, my understanding is that OTR
concentrates on deniability rather than security, which is not a
property one would want in a health environment.
