Not having Tor im bundle is bad. No progress...

Who cares about IRC in Pidgin? You just want it for completeness to follow some admirable policy at the price of not having ANY progress?

Given the activity on this ticket and people I ever saw on IRC with Pidgin... Very very few. Pidgin is ok to ask a question and be gone but not a serious IRC client.

Just remove the IRC plugin and aim for a release. If people really miss it and can't make friends with the many better IRC client alternatives you can reopen this one.

Can we close this or is it still relevant? (considering Tor Messenger won't be based on Pidgin)
