Bug#515785: ITP: bitlbee-skype -- Skype plugin for BitlBee

Package: wnpp
Owner: David Spreen <netzwurm@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : bitlbee-skype
  Version         : 0.7.1
  Upstream Author : Miklos Vajna <vmiklos@vmiklos.hu>
* URL or Web page : http://vmiklos.hu/project/bitlbee-skype/
* License         : GPL v2 or later
  Description     : Skype plugin for BitlBee
  Category	  : contrib

I intend to package bitlbee-skype, a plugin for the bitlbee IRC2IM gateway.
Since the plugin requires the non-free skype client to run, I will upload it
to contrib. It also depends on skype4py, which we need to get into unstable/contrib
first but an ITP has been filed for that and efforts are underway to maintain
it within the DPMT.

The package will be divided into two binary packages, bitlbee-plugin-skype and 
skyped. Skyped is the daemon that facilitates the communication with the skype
client and can run on a different machine than bitlbee. The plugin and skyped's 
communication are encrypted.

Best Wishes,

David Spreen
