Should be nick in ofroster empty?

I noticed on Openfire 3.6.0 that when I am adding some user to my roster, in ofroster table are created 2 rows. One for me->him direction, second row backwards, that I understand, but I noticed, that nick is only filled for me->him direction, why it is so? It’s bug or feature?

Thanks for response.

Nicknames unless predefined by an LDAP system are user controlled in their own roster. What you choose to nickname yourself can be overwritten by the other person. You may not want to know what they call you :wink:

is there a way to set an initial value here (when not using an LDAP setup)?
