Hmm.. no, but Google.com does a good job of indexing it. I'll see what I can do about that though.

None currently. The problem with those mailing lists is that folks who know anything don't have time or just don't participate in the discussions. I know I certainly don't have time.

Good question.. I won't pretend I know anything about DNS.

<register/> just indicates if the service can be registered with. In this case, it means that users can create a new ICQ account through the ICQ transport.

I'm confused. What's the problem?

Because no one tells me. I don't go surfing through source code for fun.

That'd be me.
