Gadget: * Shows people you have explicitly friended (which is trivial, that's just a conventional non-shared roster) * Shows you some random people on the server so you can bootstrap your friends * Has a search API so you can search for specific nicks (I don't know if this is implemented client-side yet.) The people you need to talk to about it are Dafydd Harries and Guillaume Desmottes at Collabora. I don't know if they're still on this list, but you can reach them through on the sugar-devel list.
