As we do not agree on whether we agree on a decision I'd like everyone
to cast a vote in favor of KTP or Kopete as default for 12.04. The
relevant discussion can be found at [1].

A quick list out of the top of my head (by no means complete, so
please consult the discussion thread if unsure):

pro: maintained, good upstream relations, more reliable (?)
con: lacks some features, no integration with message indicator (!),
issues are not well known due to limited volume of deployments

pro: well known issues, supports (most of the) features KTP does not
con: well known issues, (pretty much) unmaintained

Course of action when in favor of KTP: Kopete off CD and removal from
kickoff favorites.
Course of action when in favor of Kopete: KTP still in archive and
easily installable + PPA packages of upcoming new versions + public
call for testing of both. Target for KTP integration would be 12.10.
