I said I thought it was 1 of the many reasons why Gabber 2 development 
stopped. There were many other reasons too, like lack of interest, 
you're right about that.
I'm sorry if I was mistaken. For example, the dev of Gnome Jabber joined 
the Gossip team because he didn't want to do duplicate work.
About Gabber, I'm sad development stopped, Gabber 1 was my first Linux 
Jabber client and I loved using it. And I was very much looking forward 
to a final release of Gabber 2. Sadly enough that never happened.
