file a seperate bug.

2011/1/1 Martin Schröder <email address hidden>

> Now grouping of contacts works, that's right.
> But if a contact chooses to switch the protocol (which many of my friends
> with multiprotocol clients do randomly), another chat window opens.
> The behavior I expect is like in pidgin: merged contacts share a single
> chat window.

> Bug description:
> Binary package hint: empathy
>
> Empathy does not support grouping contacts, ie. specifying a friend which
> exists in several IM networks. This results in same friend being showed over
> and over again in the list(s).
>
> The problem is being solved using libfolks (
> http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/Folks) which can aggregate contacts
> from multiple sources like People (https://launchpad.net/people-project)
> and/or Soylent (http://live.gnome.org/Soylent)
>
> - According to the Roadmap (http://live.gnome.org/Empathy/Roadmap).
