There is a resource discovery system. if you know the address@hidden you
want to contact, you can then query what resources they have running.
And as for service discovery: there is a crude users directory
component, called "JUD". as I said, it is crude, and us Jabberites
really need a better one. The good thing about building a new one is
that the protocol already supports at least most of that advanced stuff,
it's just a matter of making some hard code that makes the protocol do
what you want to do for search and discovery.
