[Twisted-Python] OSCAR buddy list

I am trying to implement an ICQ service using twisted OSCAR protocol.

Everything works fine so far, but i can't find out how to handle the
buddy list there. I can't find anything on this topic neither in
documentation, nor in this list or the source code. Please advice, or
if this is not implemented yet, please tell me where to look so i
could make a patch.

The main problem is if i connect to ICQ service with twisted, the user
appears offline for other users. In order to see his status change I
need to "request authorization" and the service must "grant
authorization". There was a time not so long ago when it was not
required, you could just set "authorization not required" in account
profile and it worked fine, but now it doesn't. Newly added users
appear in my contact list always offline.
