Offline subscription bug

Hi,

I think I may have stumbled upon a bug when trying to subscribe to a user’'s presence when that user is currently offline. Suppose User A wants to subscribe to User B, and User B is offline.

User A sends the following XML:

*

The problem is that in the second presence message, there is no “from” field indicating from which user the subscription request is. The “to” field is missing as well.

I’'d appreciate if anybody could clear this up for me, thanks!

Hi,

FYI, I found the bug and patched it. I’'ll try to get a release out tomorrow or thursday. So just keep an eye out for the 1.0.8 announcement on this forum and that will contain the patch.
