Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

Unfortunately, the situation at work changed, and I have not
had any time for working on pidgin-openpgp (either the current
codebase or the one that was suggested to me should replace
it, which of course I cannot find the mail for right now) nor
will I probably be working on it and I personally use mcabber
and gajim, so this is open for adoption.

The packaging is usable but nothing to be proud of.

The code itself has two issues:

- the UI is horrid, you need to write ENABLEPGP in caps into
  the chat window to enable it as there's no button or any
  status indicator; this ought to be fixed

- there is one bug in the BTS against this regarding starting
  multiple gpg-agent if there's none running

Adoptors should also look into the “other” XEP-0027 implementation
for pidgin (if they find it, or should I ever find that mail again
I’ll forward that) and determine whether it’s a suitable replacement.

moin Thorsten,

Laut
http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/p/pidgin-openpgp/current/copyright
stammt pidgin-openpgp aus http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/288

Ich bin gerade auf
http://blog.chavant.info/2009/06/01/gnupg-plugin-for-pidgin
gestossen, in dem eine Schwaeche des obigen codes mit nicht-ASCII
Zeichen dargestellt wird und eine Neuimplementierung vorgestellt. IMHO
mindestens einen Blick wert, und eine Erwaegung die Implementierung
auszutauschen.

Zitat:

The most noticeable differences are:
 - the Config::INI::Simple module isn't needed
 - the code is shorter and cleaner
 - messages are UTF-8 encoded (jabber standard) so that accentuated
   characters are no more a problem
 - the script makes use of Crypt::GPG, an object oriented interface to
   GnuPG (no more temporary files, only perl strings; IPC instead of
   system calls)
