| Hi Carlo!
Hallo Matthias! :)
| In Gabber this has been used to be able to backup and restore your
| roster. With JRU this is used to manage your roster if you move servers,
| or you change transports.
Now THESE are good reasons why I can't work with the roster.
Thanks for this constructive information, even if it is a
blow to the way we wanted to do smart presence. Alright, what
do we do now.
It is still a lot less traffic if in those cases where a roster
is "repaired", the server would re-request presence to ensure
the information is valid.
A lot less than retransmitting the list of recipients over the
wire approximately each day using a new 33-like protocol.
Do we need a new type of presence subscribe request for this
special case, or can we just re-issue the presence subscribe?
I had the impression Google Talk is already sending us periodic
presence subscribe or subscribed packets, even if the subscription
is already established.
