Description Guillaume Desmottes 2011-09-30 00:57:56 UTC
We suffered enough from the old contact list API, we should deprecate it and declare ContactList and friends as mandatory for CMs having a contact list.

This requiers to have ContactList implemented in all the CMs we care about.
Comment 1 Guillaume Desmottes 2011-09-30 01:10:52 UTC
Gabble: done
Salut: bug #31729
Haze: done
Butterfly: bug #19903
Sunshine: bug #41358
Ring: not needed
Rakia: not needed
Idle: not needed

I suspect that the Python CMs are basically dead so I think we should just block this on Salut.
Comment 2 Guillaume Desmottes 2011-11-04 07:20:56 UTC
Empathy 3.4 will rely on ContactList. Butterfly and Sunshine will not likely implement this API any time soon I think we should go ahead.
Comment 3 Xavier Claessens 2011-11-07 01:29:37 UTC
This is now announced, if nobody cares about pythong CM they will just be dropped.
Comment 4 Will Thompson 2011-11-07 01:43:50 UTC
We should absolutely do this.

You should also deprecate Handle_Type_Group and Handle_Type_List.
Comment 5 Xavier Claessens 2011-11-07 02:45:57 UTC
Merged. ContactList channels are now officially deprecated.
