           Summary: Message threading spec
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: low
         Component: telepathy-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: simon.mcvittie at collabora.co.uk

We've decided to defer more discussion of message threading (like in XEP-201)
until after the "requestotron" (property-based channel requesting interface) is
finished, since it seems to be quite hard.

Issues include:

* how aggressive should UIs be about allocating new thread IDs? If you close an
Empathy chat window/tab and open a new one to the same user, is it a different

(Sjoerd thinks it probably isn't. Use-case: Sjoerd opens a chat window to talk
to Simon, sends the message "how do you make sbuild work?" (not expecting an
immediate response), and closes the chat window. He then realises he has
something more to say, opens a new chat window to talk to Simon, and sends the
message "never mind, worked it out".)

* should multiple threads really be represented by parallel channels, or should
they be messages tagged with thread IDs within one channel? (The Messages
interface can do this)

* should threads in a MUC chatroom be as separate as threads in a 1-1 chat are?
