Bug Description

Binary package hint: choqok

Twitter changed its authentication mechanism due to which clients which do not support authentication via OAuth become useless.
Lucid currently has choqok version 0.9.55a-0ubuntu1 which does not support authentication via OAuth thereby breaking twitter integration.
This bug has been addressed in Maverick by uploading qoauth and choqok 0.9.85 which support authentication via OAuth.
In order to fix this, we need to release choqok 0.9.85 and qoauth 1.0 for lucid, packages can be found at :
In order to reproduce bug : Install Choqok -> Try to add a twitter account, choqok wont be able to read and post tweets
1) Install choqok 0.9.85
2) Add twitter account

This has tons of unrelated changes, including UI changes, new features, new backends, new modules, etc. Thus this has a lot of regression potential. Is it possible in any way to just backport the move to oauth? We'd still need a backport of qoauth of course (bug 654241), but since that's a new package the regression potential is low.

If backporting doesn't work, then from my perspective we can also do the full jump, but in that case I'd like to get a second ack from another SRU team member.

In any case, please upload the two packages, so that they are ready for review. Thanks!

Uploaded choqok_0.9.85-0ubuntu2~lucid1 to lucid-proposed, waiting approval

Unfortunately it's not possible to backport the oauth mechanism to the version in lucid

Accepted choqok into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
