jabberoo LGPL?Just thought I'd make sure you were aware of the MacJLib
effort that's already well under way. I'd say it's close to jabberoo's
functionality and I _know_ it's more Mac friendly than jabberoo :) We've
tried to keep it as un-Mac specific as possible, unfortunately a couple of
things (like UTF-8 encoding/decoding) are relying on the OS. Actually I
think we've got UTF-8 support for older Macs that don't have the
functionality in the OS... hmm, I wonder how how possible it is to compile
the sucker on something other than a Mac.

Anyway, I also _really_ need to know about jabberoo... I thought it was LGPL
(Gabber is not). Ehm, the authors don't provide anything on copying or the
license in the CVS distribution.

  Is there any chance jabberoo will ever be released under LGPL?  I'm
planing to develop a non-open (unfortunately) jabber app, and I'd hate to
have to write my own jabber back-end when such an awesome library already
exists.  I'd much rather use (and potentially contribute to) jabberoo rather
than duplicate the effort.  My jabber app will be cross-platform
(linux/win32/mac) so it would be cool if I could contribute a Mac port of
jabberoo.
