    Linking to https://cyberguerrilla.info/cyberguerrilla-jabber-setup/ - is probably worth a mention in the newsletter

    Ok thank you, Will take a look, Ge0rG.

    Maybe somebody can also contact them and tell them that having email=JID is a huge win and easy to do with SRV records.

  5. SaltyBones

    Is it a huge win, though?

  6. Ge0rG

    SaltyBones: I think so, yes.

  7. Ge0rG

    SaltyBones: "what's your address?" -- "georg@domain for email, georg@jabber.domain for ex-MP-pee, ..." -- "???"

  8. SaltyBones

    doesn't the conversation usually start with "how can I reach you"?

  9. SaltyBones

    otherwise "what s your address" "georg@yax.im" "got it, thanks" -> thinks it's e-mail

  10. SaltyBones

    There might be a small win but in general most communication modes have their own addressing system and people expect it and even if they don't you still have to somehow communicate that you support this mode.

  11. SaltyBones

    which I think somehow pushes in the direction of the old discussion about how to discover xmpp addresses for people :)

  12. Ge0rG

    SaltyBones: yes, and having xmpp = email is the first step, and having SRV records to show that it's actually an xmpp address is the second
