Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

Empathy does not support AIM buddy chat. This is a request to implement AIM buddy chat support in Empathy, similar to how it is supported in Pidgin.

Empathy already has support for multiuser chats for other protocols so only the AIM-specific logic should be needed.

I've tried to work on this during hackweek 10 but since I had no previous knowledge of telepathy / telepathy-glib nor libpurple, I spent most of my time on learning on the framework rather than plugging everything between libpurple and telepathy-haze.

Anything, you can see the WIP at https://github.com/fcrozat/telepathy-haze but beware, it only compiles, is not finished and not even supposed to start working :)
