#5059 new enhancement

Adding alias dialog

Reported by: veryhumid Owned by: seanegan
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.3.1 Keywords: alias dialog


I have a number of buddies with multiple screen names. However, when assigning aliases, the dialog only says "You have 2 blah blah blah," even if it is the 3rd or more screen name for the same alias. I was thinking that for the sake of completion and polish, that the program would tell you "this is the "nth" screen name attached to the alias, do you want to continue?" (Where "n" is the number of names on a single alias)

pidgin does have code to count the number of buddies with the same alias, but it may only count toplevel buddies and not ones inside contacts (I'm not sure and don't have the time to look at the code that carefully). I'm not sure I agree that it should count the buddies in the contact as they are already merged and so not really at issue, though I don't feel strongly on this either way. I think Sean wrote the auto-merge code so I'm going to assign this to him.
