I just added the net-im/pidgin-2.0.0beta7 package to the portage tree. Its the continuation of net-im/gaim. Only two of the plugins that we have in portage (pidgin-rhythmbox and pidgin-extprefs) have released versions that are compatible with the new name. When most of them (at least the most popular ones) are released, I will add a gaim-9999 ebuild that depends on net-im/pidgin to help the transition. Then, some time after the final version of pidgin 2 is released, I will add gaim and all non ported packages to package.mask then remove them from the tree. That will also allow us to cleanse the tree of unsupported packages.
