As kde-base/kopete-3.5.5 package is actually 0.12.3 is out and hardmasked someone needs to update the net-im/kopete-0.12.2 package to .3
Except that kde-3.5.5 is not released yet ;)
And nor is kopete-0.12.3 as per their website... http://kopete.kde.org/ which you posted/provided.
Closing, kindly don't file bugs about non-existant stuff.
Kopete is out now with KDE 3.5.5 at the time I placed this bug I remember a developer, "thiago" in the #kopete channel saying that it had not been updated on the kopete website but it was released with KDE 3.5.5 and to check the official KDE changelog. What I was saying was the hardmasked kde-base/kopete is most likely the 0.12.3 version. Where as net-im/kopete is still 0.12.2
This bug was opened in order to have the net-im ebuild updated to the same version as the one shipped with KDE 3.5.5
It does seem their news items are slow because in the channel they have set the topic to "Kopete 0.12.3 is out, along with KDE 3.5.5 || Where in the world do you use Kopete? http://www.frappr.com/kopetepeople || Want to help with Kopete 1.0? See http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page=Kopete+Setup+KDE4DevEnv to get started"
this is in the official irc.freenode.net #kopete channel.
Sorry for opening this bug, it should be out very shortly.
Let's put this straight, even if I'll be harsh, but this time you must be kidding me...
*KOPETE 0.12.3 IS THE ONE RELEASED WITH KDE 3.5.5* which means it is kde-base/kopete-3.5.5 !
And as you'll read http://farragut.flameeyes.is-a-geek.org/articles/2006/10/11/and-released here, you'll see that net-im/kopete WILL BE DEPRECATED SOON.
Now can you stop wasting my time, and simply accept to change the atom you have merged with another one?
And let's close this bug for good.
Thankyou for clearning that up. I was not aware that net-im/kopete was to be depreciated.
