I think we are now at the stage where all of the tables (including one for clients) have columns for the same information. What those tables do not have at the moment is much in the way of up to date content.

We still need some people to step forward and offer to take responsibility for maintaining the various site sections. This does not mean you are responsible for searching out every server and client on the market and making sure its included, simply that you'll make sure that the page is updated once we become aware of new entries or updates. 

The client page is probably going to be the hardest to keep even vaguely up to date and the current table of clients contains some weird anomalies (I'm not sure we should include things like irc gateways as 'clients').

We should probably have another think about how this section of the site is structured as servers, clients and libraries are not the entirety of interesting XMPP related 'things'.

The paypal issue is still being sorted. Once this is done well officially announce the site on the blog.
