do you mean via the skype4py api? – Kai Nov 1 '09 at 16:19
@Kai: yes. I haven't found the complete reference of the API through DBus (which would be my personal preference) but the Python Client API library appears complete. – jldupont Nov 1 '09 at 16:31
where did you find the dbus api? – Kai Nov 1 '09 at 17:38
I use D-Feet DBus analyser. – jldupont Nov 1 '09 at 18:22
