If this has already been discussed, my apologies. I dug through the

We are interested in building an application-level router for our products
and I'd like to build it on Jabber. Most of our customers run Windows 2K
as their server architecture (hey, I'm an old mainframe hack, so platform
wars don't faze me!). I pulled down the JabberD executable for Win32 and
it runs very nicely. I pulled the JabberD source and looked it over and I
see that it is pretty much unix code and you compile on Cygwin.
I was wondering if anyone has done a true port to Win32 and has made the
source available? I've done unix to Win32 ports before and threading

GNU p-threads work fine but my Win32 guys aren't familiar with it so
support is a bit of an issue. That was the first thing that struck me on
looking over the source. So, I'm evaluating the pros and cons of a true
port and didn't really want to re-invent the wheel (or even this flavor of
Anyone got source?
thanks in advance,
