This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >75 is welcome to improve it.
There is thread on feature request which is just fighting about OTR vs OMEMO and they request that new thread would be opened.
I typed at Diaspora:
And #OTR shows it’s badness when you have #BitlBee, #Pidgin and #Conversations open. I have no idea which client received the messages. It could be worse if #SailfishOS Messaging also supported OTR.
#OMEMO again is unsupported by Pidgin and BitlBee and SailfishOS Messaging and the only client which somewhat supports it on desktop is #Gajim, but I seem to have problems with it freezing.
and I doubt I am the only one having this issue or that many people only use Sailfish OS for their messaging needs.
- Simple explanation on what is OMEMO
- TJC: The feature request on OTR which is just fighting to my point of view.
- Upstream(?) (Telepathy) bug report
Status of OMEMO in Telepathy:
2016-04-23 14:55:22+0300 < Mikaela> Hi, what is the status with https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93090 ? I am asking, because it talks about moving to XMPP component, but the tracker says that it's in gabble component and I believe Sailfish OS Messaging OMEMO support depends on it. 2016-04-23 14:57:21+0300 < Mikaela> allso possibly a little offftopic according to the /topic, but does Empathy support XMPP bookmarks or is it even supported in Telepathy? I am currently using Pidgin on desktop which doesn't support them. 2016-04-23 15:29:39+0300 < 1Filtered_Just_In_Case1> Mikaela: gabble is the telepathy connection manager for XMPP 2016-04-23 15:30:28+0300 < 1Filtered_Just_In_Case1> Mikaela: Nobody has stepped up to implement this, yet 2016-04-23 15:31:07+0300 < 1Filtered_Just_In_Case1> Mikaela: Apart from that, there is no XEP for OMEMO is not 2016-04-23 15:31:56+0300 < 1Filtered_Just_In_Case1> There was some talk on the standards mailing list about that but the problem seems to be that there is no standard for OMEMO either but only the reference implementation 2016-04-23 15:34:49+0300 < Mikaela> thanks :)
Status with standardizing of OMEMO
Mikaela asked on Conversations XMPP conference and was replied that there is currently issue of being unusable with any not-GPL software or that is not in partnership Open Whisper Systems. Telepathy is LGPL so it cannot implement it. And it would be nice if someone at Jolla Fan Club who got the screenshots could translate this to more understandable version and include some of the technical details on that rebasing thing.
