[JDEV] Server Platforms

We've been kicking around the idea of doing a straight source port to Win32
using the Cygwin toolkit.  The one problem in this is the pth (threading)
library, which does not appear to be compatible with Cygwin.  We've tried
some workarounds, to no avail thusfar...and, sadly, without that library,
the server appears to be unusable.
The only other alternative would be a full rewrite strictly for Win32,
which, as you can imagine, is not our favorite prospect :-).  If we're
serious about wanting a Win32 Jabber server, however, that may be the only
way to do it right...
Sorry I don't have better news for you.

Hi All-
I am new to jabber and I was wondering if there has been any talk about
porting the server code to other platforms, in particular WinNT or Win2000.
