Make chatty an official part of GNOME
Hi GNOME Release Team,
I have been working on chatty - A project for providing messaging services like SMS (using hardware modems), Matrix chat, XMPP chat, etc (with main focus on SMS and Matrix chat (Matrix is currently experimental)) - as my work at Purism SPC. This project is currently being used on phones like Librem5, pinephone and postmarketOS phones, and also works fine with USB Modems (which will be helpful on desktops too).
chatty makes use of GNOME and freedesktop projects (including GTK, eds, ModemManager, libsoup, libsecret, etc.) and follows GNOME HIG. And We believe that chatty would fit GNOME ecosystem as it will provide basic mobile phone features (like SMS/MMS) thus improving the mobile stack.
Chatty makes use the following libraries that are not hosted by GNOME/freedesktop:
- feedbackd - A daemon to provide haptic (and later more) feedback on events
- libpurple - a library used for developing IM programs
- libphonenumber - A library for parsing and validating phone numbers
We are very much looking forward to your reply.
