IMO you're far from being alone. We're also trying to setup something
like this on www.jabbernl.org and IMO jabberpl.org and jabberfr.org are
doing the same. IMO it would be benificial to all of us if we could join
forces and share resources/knowledge/code/ideas on some common ground
It's kind of silly to invent the wheel several times ;)
Please contact me on Jabber (jabber vanbragt com) or contact me through
jabbercentral. Thanks :D
BTW getting info on the reliability etc of servers isn't that hard. Just
create some percentile for the uptime of that server.
Recommending specific servers is a bit tricky because this will likely
create a few _very_ large public servers and it will make it almost
impossible for new servers to gain a decent userbase. So IMO we should
be a bit cautious with recommending the most popular servers.
Recommending based on location (dutch servers for dutch users etc) is
one way to accomplish that IMO.
