which directs to a dialog box where the user will be able to select the
prefered chat theme from a drop down list. I am grateful to u if u can
provide me some information about how should i proceed in the
project( relevant classes that i should import and how should i extend them

Hello Nuwan,

there are a couple of issues regarding this topic in the issue
tracker, see #378 & #645, #378 proposes to integrate Adium themes.

I started to code something to tackle these issues. I submitted two
patches, firstly some classes that generate html based on Adium
templates, and secondly a patch that refactors the current code in
order to enable an easy extension point to integrate the Adium
templates. Currently the latter patch is being reviewed, and will
probably be committed or further changes will be required before being
accepted. Once this change is resolved I plan to contribute a new
patch which will integrate the classes that generates html from adium
templates with the current Adium Chat Window, of course any help will
be appreciated and I would be happy to join efforts.

If you want to make a new skin implementation which doesn't include
Adium templates you can see the second patch to get an idea of the
classes involved and their interaction.

I guess you are free to evaluate and discuss the changes proposed in
the issue, submit an alternative proposal, or whatever you feel
appropriate to suit your needs.

Disclaimer: I am not a committer of the project. Someone will surely
correct me if I am misleading you.

Best regards,
Edgar
