Well, unfortunately, I think we'd have to wait until 10.5 is actually
out, since an open-source project adopting Leopard APIs now would
spoil Apple's secrets.
Perhaps implement it as a plug-in? Then you would work on it in your
own Adium check-out (perhaps using SVK to version it locally), then
submit the patch when 10.5 comes out, without having to worry *too*
much about Adium's code changing out from under you. (It's a risk
anyway, but less so than working on Adium itself.) It would also help
make it optional, since those of us who don't need parental controls
could pass on installing the plug-in.
Another option that you have is to take private notes without
actually coding anything. Accrete information as it comes in, and
eventually you'll have the feature more-or-less already written in
English, leaving only the job of porting it to Cocoa and Adium after
the 10.5 release.
Will you be at WWDC, or are you referring to the future, when 10.5 is
available for public consumption?
