smls [1] filed a request to merge pidgin-indicator [2] into pidgin-
appindicator [3]:

pidgin-appindicator and pidgin-indicator seem to install exactly the
same thing, just with a different package name and by two different
What's the deal with that?

I'll leave it to the TU's to decide how to resolve this; just consider

'pidgin-appindicator' has existed longer, and has a bunch of votes.

'pidgin-indicator' has the better name (since the official upstream
name is "pidgin-indicator" in the source and "Ubuntu Indicator" in the
UI, and never uses the word "appindicator").
