StatusNet plugin for Pidgin needs maintenance
With the current version I get a "connection refused" which should not happen. The Debian package can be found here:
The upstream project is on Google-Code and last update is from 30/5/2010.
I propose 2 ways of getting it updated:
Contact the original author and if he/she has no more interest in it and like to see a take-over.
At GITHub, there is already an automatically exported project: https://github.com/google-code-export/microblog-purple just clone it to here (remote-tracking!)
Now we just need to find someone to maintain it.
