Subject: Instant Messaging in Fedora Workstation
To: desktop在lists.fedoraproject.org

Empathy, which is our default IM client, has been dead upstream for some
time, so I'd like to start a discussion about what instant messaging
experience should look like in Fedora Workstation.

I've already written two blog posts about it. The goal of the first one
was to describe the situation and collect input from users:

The second one already works with user feedback from two surveys:

It pretty much comes down to a question if we want to build a well
integrated multi-protocol client (continuing with Empathy/Pidgin, or
starting GNOME Chat) or if we should give it up and embrace all those
popular, unfortunately mostly closed services (Skype, Messenger,
Hangouts, Telegram...) and make them as integrated in the desktop as
possible. The latter would probably clash a bit with one of our 4
foundation - freedom.
