[Pkg-telepathy-maintainers] Bug#704234: sends call via Google

Package: telepathy-gabble
Version: 0.16.5-1
Severity: important

Troubleshooting with this debug command:

/usr/lib/telepathy/telepathy-gabble -f

I noticed the following line:

(telepathy-gabble:9974): gabble-DEBUG: gabble_call_stream_constructed
(call-stream.c:353): Attempting to create Google relay session

it appears to suggest that calls are relayed through Google's server
(using TURN?), even though no Google accounts are defined in empathy.

This may be against the privacy expectations of many users.
