I linked a bunch of contacts from MSN and Google Talk with the new empathy feature, Now I want to export this configuration to my desktop so i don't have to make the same changes again and again.

Does anyone know where this contact-linking configuration is stored? I didn't find it under ~/.config, ~/.local/share or ~/.mission-control.

the links are in ~/.local/share/folks/relationships.ini

An empathy developer just answered me on his blog.
