please do not add to your repository packages which overwrite RHEL/EPEL ones. Case in point: you packaged pidgin, where I have spent a lot of time to create a special EPEL-only package pidgin-epel which uses RHEL libpurple and adds ONLY missing /usr/bin/pidgin (plus related icons, plugins, etc.) and I intent to continue to support as long as RHEL won't grow whole pidgin again (which may happen).

Thank you,

I will remove my pidgin.

When I added it there wasn't any in Base or EPEL and it has been like this for a long while. Glad you're picking it up.
