Say I'm waiting for my contact Emma Goldman to log in. I would then like Empathy to issue a desktop notification as soon as it happens. And optionally not again the next time Emma logs on.

Is there a plug-in or something to enable Empathy to notify when that happens?

If there is no such functionality implemented anywhere, can I do it myself? If yes, could anyone just give me a hint on where to start?

It can't be done for a single contact, but all contacts. –  Khurshid Alam Jul 14 '13 at 10:45
