The N900 offered to show your current geolocation to your IM contacts. It would be nice to have this option in SailfishOS as well.

Maybe integrated into the status menu, which is accessible from the notifications view.

The n900 revealed this by appending it to the status IIRC.. it would be nice if it would also push it to a standard pubsub node on the XMPP server (so that for example clients can show it on a map or something).

The relevant standard is XEP-0080: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0080.html There is some value in adding location info to the status info, too, for incompatible clients. That should be prio 2, though.

Thanks for looking that up @ossi1967, and I agree.
