If you look into the code (this is the -dev list after all :-) ) you
will see that we do support
xml/PIDF presence notification in SIP.
However, Asterisk is a PBX and delivers call states only. We do not
have presence and
one of the decisions on the developer's meeting in Atlanta was that
we do not want to
become a presence server, but want to cooperate with existing servers
like Jabber and
deliver our call states to them, so that an aggregation/policy
handler can decide what
to do with a user's presence based on that information.
The res_jabber module we have in 1.4 and trunk is a good step
forward, created by
Matt O'Gorman who has been working with Jabber/Asterisk integration
for a long time
and done a very good job.
Philippe Sultan has joined the Asterisk Jabber team and and have done
amount of testing and fixes to the code. During the developer's
meeting we also had
the presence of Peter StAndre from the Jabber foundation and
discussed this in depth.
I haven't seen any similar interfaces to SIMPLE servers like the one
we are using
in res_jabber. Maybe that's something you can help us explore.
