Bug#311215: RFP: gajim -- a GTK Jabber client

Severity: wishlist

  Version         : 0.7

  Description     : a GTK Jabber client

Gajim is a promising Jabber client that uses the xmpppy library. It is
written in PyGTK and supports multiple accounts, service discovery,
transport registration, TLS and GPG, emoticons, popup notification and
many other useful features. Although not yet fully GNOME HIG compliant,
upstream developers are very active and are improving the program quite

IMHO Gajim is in a better state than some other clients already packaged
(such as gabber/gabber2 and cabber) and many people are using it.
Upstream are maintaining Debian packages which seem to be in order. All
free Jabber clients should be in Debian, this would speed up the
inevitable death of all proprietary IM protocols.
