Description Johnny Proton 2005-03-01 14:45:48 UTC
We need to have a Jabber server included with Fedora! Supporting this protocol by including a server in the Fedora Distribution would help adoption rates for this. I use it often for my web hosting clients and it's a really good protocol to use because it supports SSL. Fedora could take a leadership position here. The upcoming Mac OS "Panther" has a Jabber server included. The hosting company Dreamhost (www.dreamhost.com) does currently offer this service standard with all domains and it works well with Linux, Mac, and PC. Maybe they could offer assistance? Please excuse me if i filed this is in the wrong component -- I just wanted to make sure this would be sent to someone w/ a fedora email address.

I'm not sure you can reach somebody at that address. Please post to fedora-extras-list instead: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-extras-list Work on two different jabber servers has begun before at the old fedora.us project. You could also try to find out what is holding up those packages, e.g. https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=1875 -- I assume they would appreciate if you shared your experience.

Michael, thanks much for writing. Please excuse me if I come off as frustrated but it really seems some maintainer for extras should be able to start work on a Jabber Server, or at least answer the request through an official channel. I wrote this into Bill Nottingham and he told me it would be better for extras. Isn't there any way to route it to a general maintainer for Extras? Very confusing... I'd understand if this was a strange request but it seems to be so obvious to me the Fedora needs a Jabber server by default. I guess I'll post to the list and bug them. Thanks again for the explanation Michael...
