The change to Pino was, from my understanding, due to lesser
dependencies and issues over space on the LiveCD back when Gwibber
imported the Erlang packages and the CouchDB desktop database. Gwibber
has since moved to using SQLite and yet still not been accepted back to
being provided as the default.
Pino has never worked properly for a number of people, especially with
the Twitter OAuth move, and this issue has been raised with the last two
releases, and somewhat to Fedora's discredit, the discussion is going
around in circles back to disabling Pino again during the Beta cycle
because, yet again, it doesn't work.
Gwibber by default?
F14: what to do about pino / twitter
Can the decision be made to ship the currently working Gwibber, even
with the occassional bugs it does have, it does at least fit the working
use-cases to be included as a default application?
The previous threads about Pino/Gwibber cover 95% of the issues
(lateness in the release cycle, etc) in this regard, to save people some
