GNOME IM Integration BoF


This session will discuss the current state of the instant messaging integration in GNOME. We'll focus on the different topics discussed during the IM, Contacts and Social hackfest in June; check our current progress and the work that still needs to be done.

This includes improvement of Shell's chat integration, being able to be online using only Shell's user menu and the integration of more IM-related events such as incoming file transfers and calls.
