Description Will Thompson 2013-03-20 13:37:01 UTC
            tp_error = g_error_new (TP_ERROR, TP_ERROR_CHANNEL_FULL,
                "room is full");

Sure enough XEP-0045 http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#enter-maxusers says:

> If the room has reached its maximum number of occupants, the service SHOULD deny access to the room and inform the user of the restriction; this is done by returning a presence stanza of type "error" specifying a <service-unavailable/> error condition:

The example given there has type='wait':

  <error by='coven@chat.shakespeare.lit' type='wait'>
    <service-unavailable xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas'/>

I've never seen by='' on <error> before, but it is defined in XMPP Core to be the JID of the entity which generated the error. Actually pretty useful, potentially. The error a user was seeing when trying to join a room is:

* presence xmlns='jabber:client' from='test@conference.collabora.co.uk/Iain Holmes' to='iains@jid.com/69c77204' type='error'
    * status
    * x xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/muc'
    * x xmlns='vcard-temp:x:update'
        * photo
    * error code='503' type='cancel'
        * service-unavailable xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas'

which I happen to know was generated by his server being unable to open an S2S connection to conference.collabora.co.uk because he didn't have xmpp-server SRV records on his domain so dialback would fail.

I bet we can't reliably expect to see by='' on <error>s generated by real MUC servers so it's not that obvious how we could distinguish the two. Possibly by type='wait' vs. type='cancel'?
