The Kopete Meanwhile plugin enables Kopete (the KDE Instant Messenger client) to connect to Lotus Sametime Instant Messaging servers, as used within IBM.

The libmeanwhile project is used for low-level protocol functions.

These contributions are available under the GNU General Public Licence (GPL).


The upstream kopete tree has merged the kopete-meanwhile protocol, and should be up-to-date with regards to Sametime support.

I no longer have access to Sametime messaging servers, so am no longer maintaining the kopete-meanwhile code.
