Migration assistant offers to import "Gaim" settings instead of "Pidgin"

Bug #224797 reported by Sam Bull on 2008-04-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
migration-assistant (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When installing Ubuntu (Hardy/Intrepid) and a previous version of Ubuntu is present, migration-assistant offers to import settings from "Gaim", however it should offer to import "Pidgin" settings instead. Aside from being wrong and potentially confusing to seasoned users, at this point some users will ONLY know the name Pidgin and will miss out on this useful feature, as they won't know what Gaim is.

I can confirm this on an Intrepid A4 install. This Importance is not trivial now as many new users have never known Pidgin as Gaim and will have no idea what it is referring to. Is this just a string fix? This should probably be milestoned for some Intrepid release.

Here is a potential patch, untested.

Does this bug still occur now? If by a week, nobody responds, I'll just mark this bug as invalid.

  * Rename Gaim to Pidgin. Thanks Mike Rooney (LP: #224797).
  * Do not force chpasswd to md5 crypt passwords (LP: #51551).
