To my knowledge, there are very few generic pubsub implementations:

 - built-in support in ejabberd
 - a commercial implementation by Jabber, Inc.
 - a commercial implementation by PubSub.com
 - idavoll (in python, BSD licensed, by me)

I'm not sure if the pubsub.com one is really generic. If I recall correctly,
the pubsub support is part of their application and you cannot create nodes

Jabber.org runs the first generation of Idavoll. That one is based on jabberpy,
and it is running there for testing purposes for now. I'm working on a rewrite
using Twisted for the next generation. As soon as it is usable enough,
jabber.org will probably switch to that one.

Jabber.ru and xmmp.ru (same deployment I think) run ejabberd.

There is no pubsub support in jabberd2, to my knowledge.

In any case, Idavolls development has been picked up again recently, and I
plan to have a more or less complete implementation in a couple of months. That
said, the current cvs version is already fully compliant and implements all
mandatory elements from JEP-0060 (which is really bare-bones).
