About viewing a contact list of other fellow employees, as you said, I
am working on a jabber component that should deal with it ... if you
are interested in this, let me know, we can talk more about it ... it
is kind of a extended JUD + vCard + Communities external component ...
perhaps it is what you need ... i'm sending the soc proposol attached.

cya, mel
