I have working prototype of microblogging service using PEP and Pubsub
with code name LiJ. Since my initial message I had some problems and I
wish to solve them but I don't know how I can interact with XSF more

Presence based notifications is good idea but it can't be the only way
to solve it. I think that we need a possibility to manually request
items since some time moment. I wish to specify that it's important to
send not only new items notifications but items retract notifications too.

I have some other suggestions to pubsub protocol based on experience of
usage by microblogging system development and if you wish to solve the
problems I will post them here or somewhere you wish.
