I’ve noticed a big change in the GoogleTalk gateway:
A disco#info result used to return the type attribute as “gtalk”, but now it returns it as “xmpp”.
<identity category=“gateway” type=“xmpp”…
This seems to conflict with the “xmpp” gateway which also has a type of “xmpp”
Was this intentional, or just an oversight? I think a lot of clients key off of the “type” attribute to determine the gateway type.
Is it possible to fix this in the code, or is there a setting?
Actually the gtalk was just a stub in place temporarily until I could fix some functionality. gtalk is not an official gateway type, as stated inhttp://www.xmpp.org/registrar/disco-categories.html. However, it -is- just another “xmpp” gateway. It’s just got some different features. I shouldn’t have called it gtalk to begin with, but I didn’t have a better way at the time. It’s name will be gtalk.yourserver.org, just it’s disco info type will be xmpp, which should be proper.
Sometime in the future there will be possibility for a -lot- of xmpp services to be set up, same with irc and such.
