I have been trying to add an XMPP contact using the people app (by editing one of my contacts), but there is no line to add it. Shouldn't be a away to add it from there? Is there an alternative way to do it from SailfishOS?

There is no way to add XMPP info to a contact. ...unless the person contacts you first. Then it is possible, by linking.

There is room for improvements regarding xmpp usage in Sailfish OS.

AFAIK it's not possible. You should use regular XMPP client to manage your roster.

I you add the key to a vcf card and import it with People's import guide: Settings->Apps->People->Import guide it works. E. g. key X-JABBER for XMPP.

@ljo thanks, I didn't know about that.Still, quite awkward...
