Description Matej Cepl 2008-06-11 01:53:03 UTC
(discussion on #telepathy with Zdra about inability to add SIP contact to the roster):
<mcepl> I know, but there is no addressbook if I cannot add SIP contacts to roster
<Zdra> mcepl: you can't have sip contacts on the roster, but you can still call them
 mcepl: there is no addressbook yet, right
<mcepl> hmm, that's not nice :-(
 OK
<mcepl> yeah, true
 but, why cannot I have SIP contacts in roster?
 (aside from "not implemented yet")
 (and hoping that we will get metacontacts some day)
<Zdra> mcepl: it's not implemented in telepathy-sofiasip

Conclusion, could you do please whatever is necessary for enabling empathy (and others) to add SIP contacts to the roster, please?

I was told that Ekiga 3.0 should have something similar to what I would like to have in telepathy/empathy.
Comment 2 Guillaume Desmottes 2008-11-23 13:25:44 UTC
Ekiga implements SIMPLE to store contacts. telepathy-sofiasip should do as well.

This is a pretty significant limiting factor in use of Empathy for VOIP applications.
Comment 4 Jeremy Nickurak 2010-07-04 12:49:16 UTC
http://sofia-sip.sourceforge.net/ suggests that the underlying sofiasip library supports SIMPLE... what would be needed is an implementation of the MESSAGE, SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY and PUBLISH methods from the respective rfcs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIMPLE )

True, it's mostly a simple matter of programming.
Another thing is XCAP contact list support, which has some disclosed IPR encumberments. To implement that (and it's the only semi-sane standardized way to manage subscription lists with regard to SIP), one has to start with developing a plugin system to telepathy-sofiasip.

Is there any progress on this? This is a feature I'm interested! ;]
