I don't know how many people are using jabberd rather than jabberd2 (or other options such as ejabberd) nowadays since jabberd2 is well maintained and is generally a suitable replacement for jabberd, Also, jabberd hasn't had much development in years from what I've seen. Unfortunately, no one has bumped jabberd2 in the tree for a while so there are a few bugs open for it. Tim
