This is a followup to my previous post here.
Things that happened since writing the post:
- Pidgin have now acknowledged their "not showing error stanzas" bug and basically replied with it's complicated. The main problem seems to be that, like BitlBee as well, Pidgin doesn't keep a list of stanzas that were already sent, so the information that a certain message ID had an error doesn't really carry meaningful information. We can hope.
- Chatsecure have expressed dismay about the timing of my post since they think they have fixed most of the issues I complained about in an update that was released right after I published my post. I'll certainly give the new version a trial run and share my thoughts on it in a few days.
- Also there were some reactions and discussions on twitter. (including reference to yet another ejabberd annoyance)
So that's that for now. More as the story develops.
Update: I've now also looked at gajim as the sending client
