The idea would be to get sugar to function more like a standard jabber IM client, as well as using existing standards in place of some of the custom solutions used now (xmlrpc instead of dbus perhaps?). I would also like to talk about using the colaboration API to talk to external services not on the jabber network(a moodle server for instance). As well as a possibly a few API changes to make these sorts of services easier to access for activity developers.

I would also like to discuss some of the jabber scalability problems, as well as how we manage grouping students into classes, and collaborating with other schools over the internet.

I think it's a good idea and would like to hear more about how we
could open Sugar up to higher levels of interoperability.
I'm also quite curious about how Sugar runs in a LTSP environment and
the challenges we can find there, so maybe Resara could talk a bit
about that as well?
