Psi is a cross-platform powerful XMPP client designed for experienced users. User interface of program is very flexible in customization. For example, there are "multi windows" and "all in one" modes, support of different iconsets and themes. Psi supports file sharing and audio/video calls. Security is also a major consideration, and Psi provides it for both client-to-server (TLS) and client-to-client (OpenPGP, OTR, OMEMO) via appropriate plugins.

While psi-plugins package is new in Debian, the project has long history [2], these plugins are stable and well tested in other GNU/Linux distros and even in Debian [3], upstream is active and responsive, Psi 1.x releases cycle receives only bug fixes, backported from git master branch (where active development of next Psi 2.0 release is done).

Yes, Psi program may still be used without these plugins, but I believe that additional features provided by them will be highly demanded by Ubuntu users.

[3] In fact psi-plus-plugins package [4] used the same code base approximately between Psi+ 0.16.19 and 1.2.40 releases [5] (2012-2017). Just a reminder:
Psi+ is a development branch of Psi with rolling release development model. Users who wants to receive new features and bug fixes very quickly may use Psi+ on daily basis. Users who do not care about new trends and prefer constancy may choose Psi as it uses classical development model and its releases are very rare.

Unsubscribing ~ubuntu-sponsors because there's nothing to sponsor at the moment (the FFe needs approval by the Release team). Please feel free to resubscribe if/when this is approved.

Sure, from a release point of view.

This will still need archive-admin review, though. If they're busy it may still not happen.
