Maybe not directly related to what you expected to read in replies to this
message, but I want to say a few things that I wish that XMPP had.

I am desapointed with what I can do now with XMPP. Mobiles clients are not
as good as clients for Telegram and Whatsapp. There are alternatives,
which is good. But not as good when people are not using them because they
do not give what similar programs already do well (or, if you analyse,
just good enough), and they are popular. XMPP does not have something good
for normal people wanting to use them. Talking with one or two people??
That is what I offer to the very few friends whom accepted to use XMPP
just because I use  it. But who else does??? That is missing. As I have
said, the limitations of mobile clients compared with XMPP desktop clients
are considerable, and sometimes they are just what I needed - in better
words, they are just what someone who accepted it with my indication

I hope that something meaninful in these aspects come out of these
encounters. Keep the list informed when it ends!

Kind regards
