I'm confused now :)

All I'd really like is for the default experience that people get is
that they get Pidgin configured to work well with notify-osd.  How it
gets packaged to do that is not my expertise.

Can someone suggest the best way to do that in a way that works well for
derivates?  I'm quite sure I don't understand all the packaging issues
