Description Marko Turk 2018-04-05 19:55:01 UTC

telegram-purple port has pidgin set as a dependency. Is this really necessary or is dependency toward libpurple enough?

telegram-purple could be used from bitlbee or some other program which supports libpurple and not only pidgin.

Looks like majority of piding plugins has pidgin as run/build depends; though you could remove it on your end in ports

(In reply to Nathan from comment #1)

Yes, I removed the dependency locally, and telegram-purple works ok together with bitlbee without pidgin.

Remove pidgin dependency

Hi, I think also that pidgin dependency is unnecessary. I propose to remove both BUILD_DEPENDS and RUN_DEPENDS variables in the patch submitted. Regards.
