Don't we need a real assiciation structure to apply as an organisation? 
So indeed this year I was thinking about being in XMPP's umbrella. Do 
you think Gajim should apply on its own Peter? Maybe for next year?

+1, if all clients implement the same protocol, that would be much better !

At the begining I thought Mateusz could help you to write the XEP, but 
in fact it seems it is already written. XSF needs to take a decision, 
and in that, he can't help.

Indeed, automatic GUI testingwould be nice too: we can't test all 
features of gajim everyday.

That's something we plan in a near futur (after 0.12 release) to be able 
ton configure the way events are handled more smartly (buddy pounces)

No we don't have anything about that yet.

We already have that.

We have that in SVN. Next release will have that.

We don't have that, and that would be a cool project too.
