TL;DR: Add your Jabber-Server to https://list.jabber.at.

I am the maintainer at jabber.at and developed list.jabber.at. The site
was actually a reaction to when we had the same situation a few years
back. The XSF has been very sporadic in operators support, the list was
never (at least: not since 2007 or so) really maintained. Sadly, they
were very reluctant to ever ask for support, and *always* simply ignored
any offer for support, even when they asked for it.

That being said: You described the process well. You register at the
site, confirm your E-Mail and JID (fuck spam!) and just add your site
under "My Servers".

The site will do almost everything by itself: It verifies TLS and SRV
records. If you give a Homepage as "contact detail" I will manually
verify that within a day or so. If you ever fuckup your SRV records or
your Cert is not valid, the server will disappear until the problem is
