First, excellent work and thanks to all those involved in this project including the plug in authors, gaim dev’'s and all the folks who help in the community.
We are evaluating a move from Sonork IM systems http://www.sonork.com/ to Wildfire/Gaim or a Skype solution.
As both wildfire/gaim and skype have their own strengths and weaknesses, I have only this one remaining issue to make the switch to wildfire w/o hesitation. We are a group of about 30 users located in many time zones and will all be using linux desktop as our operating system by end of year. We evaluated Wildfire2.6.2/Gaim 1.5 on mixed windows/linux clients and we are very pleased with the results.
I have searched the forms with the above key words as well as looked at
IM File Transfer Made Easy
Feb 7, 2006
by Matt Tucker
But I have not found a solution for us to send files to each other using wildfire while other members are offline. Perhaps someone can offer a solultion or a Feature request that would allow the files to be stored on the wildfire server…either filesystem, HSQL Database Engine or mysql database.
I know I can set up alternatives for the file transfers, but we want to keep that function w/i the messeging system.
Secondly…I was looking for links to donate, as i like to try to support the best we can for the oss software we use…is the only choice to purchase a support plan?
