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:
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
