*sigh* it really doesn't matter does it? The facts are the facts. That
is the way the service was provisioned, that is the way it has been
since its inception. 

For the record (again):

 1. We use OpenFire, formerly Wildfire

 2. Jabber has been configured to allow external connections. This was
tested and seemed to work. I note now that it does not for some reason
(I will check it) but the proper thing to do would have been to open a
ticket on PMT.

 3. Bruce has *not* requested an account many times. He has requested
an account, yes which is why he has one. Did I perhaps forget to send
him his credentials, maybe. Should Bruce have just pinged or called
(yes, he has my phone number) me and say, "Hey JD WTH?". Yes. Which the
problem would have been resolved a lot quicker than the lovely
stateless communication we are all burning time on.

 4. Any contributor can have an account.

 5. If people want to help manage the jabber service, please contact me
directly. My preference is that it would be someone who is already a
.Org sysadmin.

I repeat, keep it real.
