User Story

Peter and Mary are grandparents but life far away from their grandchildren. 
They want to "see" them more often and know that their grandchildren own 
computers with webcams. With some simple taps they are able to make a video 
and audio connection.

Why is this important

Communication is a crucial feature for todays mobile devices. A lot of the 
tablets have at least one webcam.

Proposed implementation

I'll get in contact with the KDE Telepathy team and see what needs to be done 
to get. First step would be to package the current KDE Telepathy (KTp) 
framework and see what hardware is already working.

A next step would be the integration of the KTp framework and infrastructure 
in the PA system and probably SLC system (although this might be a separate 

A last thing or the main thing would then be the implementation of a simple 
audio/video chat system for KTp.
