How do we stand as far as a test jabber server for inkboard? I think
for 0.46 it would be a good goal to get the whiteboard feature much more
stable, and having a test server would probably be a big step towards
Would there be any major risks if we ran wildfire or ejabberd (or both)
off of inkscape.org? Do they consume excessive bandwidth or trigger any
stability problems in the kernel or apache? I think we could easily
give inkboard developers accounts and sudo access on inkscape.org
restarting the jabber server(s).
Also, on the topic of status - what plans are afoot for future
development work? Are there tasks that others could assist with?
I would definitely recommend Wildfire. It is very mature
and robust, and seems to be up-to-date on standards. It
also has web-based admin, which makes maintenance a lot
easier. You need to install Java on the machine, but Java 6 is
very sweet and much lighter on resources than its predecessors.
Besides that, there are no dependencies. I run it on my desktop
when I need to test Pedro, and it doesn't seem to burden the
machine at all.
