just noticed, that you're likely want additionally to rewrite the
following gajim credentials:
lovetox <forenjunkie AT chelo DOT at> --> Philipp Hörist <forenjunkie AT chello
tmolitor <thilo AT eightysoft DOT de> --> Thilo Molitor <thilo AT eightysoft
Their respective owners should correct me, if I'm wrong with the
Gajim-devel mailing list
