Hi,

There's been some discussion on this list about recent changes regarding
XMPP Federation at Google, and wanted to provide some information on this
issue.

The recent launch of Google Apps Team Edition caused a problem that broke
XMPP Federation for some domains. In a nutshell, the issue was that certain
domains were being treated as if they were hosted at Google, as opposed to
being federated with Google. This prevented XMPP packets from being routed
properly.

A fix has been identified and existing federated domains should start
working again soon. The fix also prevents the problem from happening in the
future with new federated domains. I'll send another update when the fix is
live in production.

Thanks,
Justin Uberti
