I would like to share a feature request that was made for Thunderbird: since it already support email and newsgroup (NNTP) messages, why not support XMPP messages as well? XMPP includes "normal" messages (email-like), which could be presented exactly in the same way emails and newsgroup messages are. In addition, there could be a nice integration to be done for starting a new chat with the sender of a message if they're online. In addition to what the bug report suggests, I think the address book could be used as an interface to the roster. I'm curious about other interfaces in Jabber clients than the eternal ICQ/Gajim/Psi/MSN/Pidgin-like interface... bugzilla.mozilla.org
I can't believe someone can pretend that ejabberd is not notable, and insist on deleting an article that talks about it. What's happening to Wikipedia? This is just plain crazy. en.wikipedia.org
When you think of it, since it's possible to associate several groups to a contact in the roster (for example Gajim has an interface for it), the so-called "groups" should rather be seen as "tags". You tag your contacts e.g. as "friend", "co-worker" (can be both – that's the point), etc. I wonder how nice it would be if the clients used such a paradigm for managing contacts instead of the old-fashioned, section-based groups presentation.
I just sent a message to the people running thesixtyone.com in order to ask them to add support for xmpp.org (XMPP User Tune). They tend to never answer anybody's message anyway, but maybe someone will think about the suggestion and do something... (if you want to support the idea by sending the same kind of message, go ahead!)
Telepaatti 23.fi is a fake IRC server that aims to give access to Jabber multi-user chats to IRC clients. One good reason to start your project's channel on Jabber rather than to IRC: IRC users can still join them! 23.fi
