Description Simon McVittie 2009-08-05 07:53:45 UTC
The functionality of Contacts should be a core part of Connection.

Proposed migration path:

* add GetContactAttributes and ContactAttributeInterfaces to the core Connection interface, with the same signature and stuff

* flatten TpContactsMixin into TpBaseConnection

* make similar changes in telepathy-python

* when those changes are old enough to rely on, change TpContact to use the core Connection interface instead of Contacts

* deprecate the Contacts interface

* in Telepathy 1.0 (Bug #23148), delete the Contacts interface
Comment 1 Simon McVittie 2010-12-01 03:00:04 UTC
Telepathy 1.0 is relatively imminent and won't be backwards-compatible anyway, and porting will be straightforward, so let's just merge these interfaces at that point.
