I am using XMPP with Gajim and Conversations daily.
On one device I would like to use mainly GNOME software. I never used
Empathy because as far as I know it had only basic XMPP capabillities
with no Extensions.
So today I took some time to try to research about its actual
capabillities. Usually I compare clients on  an  though both are
of course no guarantee to be up to date. Both do not feature Empathy at
I assume, that many people just think it has the same capabilities as
Pidgin has. I am not sure if that is true at all since the switch to
Telepathy. Does somebody know about the differences?
Like mentioned in another thread I have to agree that it sometimes
looks like not much development is currently going on.
I would like to dedicate some time to Empathy/Telepathy to help with
the work for XMPP. For this reason I looked around in the
telepathy-gabble repo .
So far I never wrote XMPP software, only used it. Because of that I
wanted to start with implementing a small extension for a start, I
thought about XEP-0333 .
Then I could see how it goes and hopefully continue from there.
I would like to ask if there is someone on this list who worked with
telepathy-gabble/empathy who could guide me in my initial steps, it
would be quite appreciated.
Furthermore I wanted to ask if there are any plans about the
development of XMPP inside Empathy/Telepathy that I might not be aware
