The Fedora Pidgin package needs to be fixed. I just fixed XChat a few hours
ago. After years-long discussion, it seems we finally agreed on "Name=XChat
IRC", "Name=Pidgin Instant Messaging" etc. as a compromise. (The real
solution according to the freedesktop.org
standard would be Name=XChat,
GenericName=IRC or Name=Pidgin, GenericName=Instant Messaging, but the
problem is that GNOME still does not support GenericName.)
Found the old WontFix bug, re-opened,
Added to distro tracker. Will pull-rank, escalate issue this time if
maintainer doesn't conform to established guidelines and policy here.
(It's about time, it was originally reported eons ago... by me).
