At the moment incoming "add contact" requests are handled by the contact list, but that means that if the contact list is not running, no request is received
I'm looking into this right now. How do you think we should let the user know? Plasma popup would be the best, but it's buttons and the persistant flag does not always really work and a KMessageBox surprise is not too nice either. Should we create a StatusNotifierItem like for the new message?
