I signed up for GSoC this year and noticed something that i could actually benefit from myself - a unified communicator.
I've downloaded and tested the application for everyday use and noticed a rather irritating bug.
If I close the main contact list I get an error bar that says the "X-window is hidden" (presumably the contact list) and the application is still running.
The problem is that the contact list seems to be irrevocably lost - can't for the life of me find the correct option and it doesn't come back even after restarting the application (the only solution seems to be to remove the "SIP communicator"-folder in the Application Support folder, thus resetting the application.
So what this bug means in plaintext is as follows
* there is no "hide / unhide" selection in the menubar / options for the contact list
* the contact list remains hidden if closed
This doesn't seem to be on the bug tracker as of yet, so I'm not certain it's been reported before / reported but refuted (I might have missed something obvious), but if it's a proper bug I wouldn't mind trying to correct it myself, given some pointers on where to look in the project code.
(following this is just a short presentation of myself - if this bug comment wasn't enough: reply! or just grab me on msn: firstname.lastname@example.org)
And as this is my first post in the developer mailing list:
My name is Alexander Wallin and I'm a un undergraduate student at a decently sized university in souther sweden; I've studied a variety of programming courses and languages and I tend to program on my pasttime. I'm a mac user since the day I was born and I have a good and strong interest in board games and games in general.
I stumbled upon SIP by browsing this years GSoC and intend to independent of being accepted for a project combine a frequent usage with whatever help I can offer.
