#15423: XMPP MSN others - nickname integration
 Reporter:  street  |      Owner:  deryni

Milestone:          |  Component:  XMPP
  Version:  2.10.6  |   Keywords:  XMPP MSN others nickname integration

 first I would second a bug that I still haven't been able to solve through


 Having I an XMPP account (riseup.net domain) I see all my friends names
 and mine as user at domain, not the nickname they have set.

 For example:

 (being AT an @ (I do that because if not the domain is censored here))

 First would be nice to solve that (and be able to see my friends nicknames
 correctly (the ones they have set) and set easily mine so others see it
 too). That would be very intereseting for the free software community so
 XMPP/Jabber is the most common IM that we have, and soon MSN is gonna
 disappear (migrate to Skype) so that would be a very good opportunity to
 have many users moved to the "free world" and giving more power to it,
 aiding that if we fix this issue.

 And second, as a complement for this, would be nice to be able to set a
 nickname to the different accounts we have activated (not having to set
 one by one); as happens with the status (where it yes works perfectly like

 For example if I change my nick to "nick2" it is set as my MSN, and
 different XMPP accounts nickname, and any other protocols possible. That
 would be very nice for usability.

 Thank you very much!
