Description Laurento Frittella (mrfree) 2011-05-27 08:23:31 UTC

It's a pidgin-gnome3 integration extension.

"GNOME3 comes with Telepathy/Empathy integration. However, I'm mainly a Pidgin user because Telepathy/Empathy lacks of per-account proxy settings. I always force my IMs to go through a proxy in VPN regardless where I am, but not for other apps, so telepathy/empathy is out of the equation."

@ Laurento seems somewhat related. If I understand it right than applying those patches will upgrade proxy support in Pidgin with use of Gnome3 and than there would be no need for gnome-shell-extensions-pidgin in the future, right?

Anyway might be worth you check it out
