IM, Contacts and Social Hackfest, final day

Today was a shorter day, with many of the attendees taking their leave before the week-end (and a pizza lunch turning into kitchen discussions).

Today focused on brainstorming around a Conversation app, to eventually replace Empathy. There are still many problems to be solved before that jump can be made though, so don't expect it to happen for GNOME 3.2.

The other topic today was a reusable contact selector widget, to be used in applications that offer sharing to contacts, like Tiffany's on-going GSoC for document sharing in Evince.

No cats were harmed during the making of this hackfest.

"We want applications to grow Tubes support. This requires two things:..."

Well, first of all, this requires a tutorial and a sample application!

I wanted to play with the tubes but found no documentation / example I could really start with!
