Some random notes, without any intent to sponsor this package:
* According to the website, the icons are non-free (CC-BY-NC-SA),
and should thus be removed from the tarball. If they are now
actually licensed under GPL, they still miss the source I
guess (as there are only pngs).
* debian/README.* are templates and should be removed.
* debian/copyright could use the DEP-5 format, i.e.
* You should probably not depend on pidgin, I guess the plugin
is also useable from finch (the console version).
I haven't build the package as I was just a bit bored and took a look at
the source. I did not even run lintian.
