Infra ran a Jabber server for developers from at least 2004 (maybe earlier, I wasn't heavily involved then) until mid 2008. Usage was very low (peaked at 6 devs connected in the year I watched it), and didn't justify the hardware & manpower resources it too. Our LDAP instead has a gentooIM attribute, and 64 developers have XMPP accounts list (72 unique JIDs). A stable public XMPP-MUC only instance (no local users) may have some value, but I wouldn't expect it to have anywhere near the turnout of IRC. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Developer, Trustee & Infrastructure Lead E-Mail : robb...@gentoo.org GnuPG FP : 11AC BA4F 4778 E3F6 E4ED F38E B27B 944E 3488 4E85
