In June I read this message [1] and a statement about the status of KDE 
Telepathy got my attention:

> Now this project is effectively dead. It hasn't seen any real
> development for more than a year and basically is just on life
> support ever since the core team had to leave the project because of
> job and life constraints. The other factor is also the wide spread of

I didn't find any reply to the original message, so I'm now wondering 
if there is no more interest for this application and if it is destined 
to be abandoned.

IIRC, and please correct me if I'm wrong, KDE Telepathy should have 
replaced Kopete but this doesn't seem to ever happened. Kopete seems to 
be still alive but maybe also this application is on "life support". 

So, is there a big plan for these applications or should we start 
thinking to use something else?
