           Summary: Improve fallback behaviour when user's server has no
                    conference component.
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: git master
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: medium
         Component: gabble
        AssignedTo: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: will.thompson at collabora.co.uk
         QAContact: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

Today I tried to create an ad-hoc conference containing two fellow fruit fans.
Unfortunately my Jabber server doesn't have a MUC component. (That sysadmin
should pull his socks up.)

Gabble doesn't have any fallback MUC servers configured by default. This seems
a bit upsetting. The Illustrious Rob removed the conference.jabber.org default
back at the dawn of time. I'm not sure what the rationale is. I don't know who
exactly would configure fallback-conference-server, ever.

One option would be to re-add a hard-coded conference server.
(conference.telepathy.im?) Another option might be to try discoing the contacts
we're trying to invite to see if their servers have MUC components if ours does
not. (This would actually not have helped because neither of these people have
MUC components either.)
