Testing requests must be more advertised perhaps. However we still have
3+ months to give further input. I just hope that serious regressions
will be fixed if any. E.g. OTR comes to mind. A ubuntu live cd can be
used for secure communication. If you just plan to drop the thing there
and wait, then people will complain.

I personally would prefer empathy over pidgin as it supports audio (does
it work well? As good as skype, which is bad in everything else?).
