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.
