In camouflage mode, it would nice that pidgin tray icon doesn't draw attention. If skype or windows messagener has a tray icon, the best would be to mimlic it.

Pidgin tray icons live in /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray/. They are themable by adding pidgin-tray-* in /usr/share/theme/Windows8/status/48/.

Reject in the November meeting: https://tails.boum.org/contribute/meetings/201411/

We considered those as no real issues. The camouflage mode tries to avoid being spotted as Tails by someone passing by but it can't be a 100% perfect imitation of Windows. So we decided to reject both tickets.
