Description of problem:
MDC instant messenger. http://mdc.ru
Latest version 188.8.131.52 don't connect for Jabber & crashed fot Ya.Online.
Would it be possible to package it for ROSA Marathon 2012 repository?
It seems that this project had no activity after the source code was opened in 2010. There are quite a few issues in this application that are not going to be fixed. And one of the major features - usage of a centralized mdc serer to store settings and message history - doesn't seem to work now.
Finally, it cannot be compiled 'as is' in ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 with modern gcc/Qt/boost/etc, and we don't see much sense in writing patches for a dead project.
Use some open and actively developed/supported client instead.
