Thank you for working on that. Could you try working with the maintainer
on the Ubuntu package rather than providing un-official packages and
pointing people to them thoug?. Such packages created a bunch of
upgrades issues to edgy by example.

I've upload gaim 2.0beta5 to feisty yesterday, I would recommend people
to not use unofficial packages for it. For edgy feel free to open a
backport task on launchpad, the backport team can probably work on that
