Kay has been working on the libyahoo2 project as part of the Fedora Summer Coding initiative. He's been working on chat room support and things are looking quite good so far. Kay has finished working on the core functionality of logging in, joining and leaving rooms; only the chat room list functionality is remaining. He was a little shy of interacting with libyahoo2 upstream earlier, but he has been working on it since.
Looking at the pace of the project so far, we could have Kay's code merged into upstream very soon. Following this, me or Ray van Dolson will do a release in Fedora.
