Great to hear that. It's a really nice lib IMHO. :)

Unfortunately, this does not work for me. I get KeyError (no 'jid').

Here's what's in my self.bot.plugin['xep_0050'].sessions[sessionID]:

    <bound method memberbot.votingHandler of
		 <plugins.memberbot.memberbot object at 0x339fa90>>,
		[(<sleekxmpp.plugins.xep_0004.Form object at 0x33c9a10>, None)]}

Item at 'next' key is my command handler. At 'past' I have Form object from
which I cannot however JID (as stated in previous posts). I get these at
breakpoint in my handler method.

These values are set in xep_0050.handler_command (or
xep_0050.handler_command_next) in xep_0050.py plugin file.

I think I've pretty much investigated all surroundings of 'sessions'
dictionary and I cannot find sender JID.

I've checked out latest SleekXMPP version from SVN to see whether I don't have
some old version, but the code is pretty much the same in that file.

Maybe I'm missing something?

Of course, I could add code to above metioned xep_0050 methods (patching
SleekXMPP), like this one (to make your code work):

self.sessions[sessionid]['jid'] = xml.attrib['from']

However, I want to avoid changing libs code locally. Other approach would be
patch SleekXMPP officially - I don't have anything against it, but (once
again) maybe I'm missing something :)
