ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 7255
[Package Requests] purple-funyahoo-plusplus

In 2016 Yahoo decided that they would give next-to-no notice that they were retiring their old protocol in favour of a brand new protocol that doesn't do nearly as much as the old one. Whilst Microsoft were kind enough to give people a couple of years to plan transitions for MSN, compare that with the 2 months that Yahoo were so generous to provide.
This provides Yahoo PlusPlus Support To Pidgin Required for Access to Yahoo after August 5th 2016.
Any URL to download sources?
You have to do a git check out, its one file and one make file.

I just missed the URL in bug description. :-) Now I see it.
As Standard Yahoo chat has been discontinued, this is now a requirement for Pidgin Support in Yahoo.
Okay, I have packaged this, and it needs to be imported into contrib.
