remains one of the easiest xmpp servers to install and configure (thanks to
a decent web admin panel), and I would guess still very popular if the 5
million downloads they quote on their homepage is correct!

Unless you're saying that Surevine or add someone equally smart has been
doing some serious work on it of late, I'm not going to change my opinion,
really. That server was very good in its day, and the admin interface is
great for basic tasks, but it needs some serious work to remove the
software rot.

Given the vast number of critical installations, I'd love to see that work
done, mind.

Dave.
