Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

Support for Facebook chat in Empathy has been broken for most of
Karmic's release cycle, and it never worked "out of the box" but needed
code for Pidgin's repositories. Upstream doesn't seem to be getting any
closer to fixing this bug
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17907), and Karmic is
about to be released. Can we at least change Empathy's package
description to remove the line saying it supports Facebook when it does
not? It's a bit of false advertising, y'know.
