This thread sure got long! Thanks for all of the comments.
Yes, libpsi is a Qt-based library for now. My proposal was to turn it into a
KDE lib for kdelibs. I haven't done that yet because, well, I wanted to see
what kind of response I'd get first :) Btw, this would be very easy I think.
KExtendedSocket, KSSL, and KVcard (is there such a thing?) are probably all
that will be substituted in.
While I do find the open vs proprietary IM debate interesting (and I have a
strong opinion there), I believe it is irrelevant to the inclusion of libpsi
into kdelibs. You see, Kopete already uses libpsi. So from a
Kopete-developer perspective, moving libpsi into kdelibs is basically
equivalent to moving 10% (or so) of Kopete into kdelibs. libpsi is
near-ready now, so I say let's put it in. Moving the remaining 90% of Kopete
can be left open for future debate.
Remember, libpsi is just a simple lib. No dcop, no UI, etc. No code would be
removed if there ever was a libkopete in kdelibs, only added.
So what now?
Oh, and a final question: why wait for KDE 3.2 ? Is it too late to add a
functioning lib to 3.1? I actually proposed this lib for KDE back in April,
before the freeze, and it isn't going to change much from here-on out.
