mu-conference is an implementation of xmpp conference rooms. It worked with jabberd 1.4 (and might still) and works with jabberd 2. It might be the standard approach for conferencing with jabberd2: https://github.com/jabberd2/jabberd2/wiki/InstallGuide-MU-Conferencing
Around 2013 hosting moved to gna.org (FSFE?), both repo and ; I'm not sure where it was before. At some point I became one of the upstream maintainers and in 2013 released 0.8.81 to fix a timing-dependent startup bug as well as to get a number of other features in a release. Since then, there hasn't been a vast outcry about bugs and it seems to have been mostly stable. Most recently, it was hosted at gna.org, which I think used to be run by FSFE, and has apparently disappeared. Questions arising: Does anybody know what happened or is happening with GNA? Might it be coming back? Is anybody still using mu-conference? (I'm not personally, but do know of one significant-size installation.) Is there a better way to do chatrooms with jabberd2? Is anyone interested in continuing to maintain mu-conference? I am sort of inclined to create a project on gitlab (because it seems too much work to ask for nongnu.savannah.org, both for me and for the FSF staff, and I don't see that FSF hosting mu-conference advances the goals of Free Software enough to be worth their resources). Encouragement? Objections? Anything else?
