kdenetwork (which provides kopete) is the only package in the archive
build-depending on libgadu-dev, so this should be an easy transition. ;-)

I remember the upload. The change was made as to work with both schemes
of GG_LIBGADU_VERSION, so the configure script will parse 1.7.YYYYMMDD
(For the casual readers of #310276, and for -talk: I changed debian/rules
to pass --with-external-libgadu to ./configure.)

No, everything looks fine, but thanks a lot for contacting us first. :-)

This would be untrue, see e.g.:
ekg_1.7~rc2-1 will work just fine.
