[Slackbuilds-users] network/skype4pidgin needs an update

Version 1.5 of network/skype4pidgin available in SBo is not working and 
can't establish a connection. This is because of some changes on Skype 
end, and also because of an upstream bug in skype4pidgin [1]. The bug is 
fixed in the latest version of the plugin (1.7 at the time of writing).

I sent an email about it to Ekin Akoglu (current maintainer) about a 
month ago, but I received no reply so far. I'm willing to take over 
maintenance and update skype4pidgin if there are no objections.
