    Is there any widely used XMPP client which sets xml:lang according to the systems language?

  2. Martin

    I thought gajim does it, but obviously it sends lang="en"…

  3. Zash

    How do you know if it's really english or just the default stream xml:lang?

  4. Zash

    (As in, how do _I_ know, looking at XML logs?)

  5. jonas’

    is there a default?

  6. Zash

    Based on mostly presence flood on connect, I surmise that Dino, poezio, Pidgin would be clients to investigate

  7. Link Mauve

    Martin, libervia is using xml:lang, so perhaps it’s also setting it?

  8. Link Mauve

    poezio makes it configurable, but doesn’t try to guess it.

  9. jonas’

    so what does it send as xml:lang then?

  10. jonas’

    (if not configured)

  11. jonas’

    ah, poezio is in the convenient position to only being bound by a SHOULD. while servers are bound by a MUST :)

  12. Martin

    Link Mauve: thx, I'll check with poezio then.

  13. Link Mauve

    Defaults to en.

  14. Martin

    Yep, configured it to "de" and it worked. Thanks.

  15. Zash

    Who's bound by a MUST?

  16. jonas’

    For response stream headers, the receiving entity MUST include the 'xml:lang' attribute.

  17. Zash

    Mm. But it's basically free to pick whatever language tag there.

  18. Zash

    Servers SHOULD remember what the initiating entity sent, SHOULD inherit it onto stanzas. MUST NOT delete or modify existing xml:lang on stanzas.

    does anybody know how to contact the authors of vacuum-im?13:54:34 I want to ask them how much it would cost for them to fix a segfault issue, implment http-upload, and finish implementing mam

    I really want a solid xmpp client for linux that doesn't look like a smartphone ui and supports some specific xeps13:55:54 and, is actually supported. I don't mind paying money for it
