Grégoire Menuel Application 2007
I'm Grégoire Menuel, a 21 years old french student. I'm in the last year of my school of telecommunication located in Lyon.
Jabber servers administration
I'm currently administrating two Jabber servers :
- A small one for the linux user group of my school (~ 10 concurrent online users)
- The biggest french jabber server : jabber.fr/im.apinc.org. This server is maintained by a team of administrator and have around one thousand concurrent online users.
I've mainly done some small projects in the Jabber world.
- Mu-conference : After having done some patches for mu-conference, I've taken over the development of this composant. I've haven't been hacking much for it lately, but I intend to go back to work soon.
- Omnipresence is a jabber composant allowing to easily display one's presence on the web. It is currently used at http://presence.jabberfr.org. I intend to translate it in english one day or another.
- Neutron, a jabber bot, that I've enhanced for serving the purpose of JabberFR. It can for the moment send notification when a wiki page is changed (see this pages in french for more information : http://wiki.jabberfr.org/RobotJabberFR , some of the information may be slightly outdated).
I've also done some other works like implementing socks5 file transfer in xmpp.py (unfortunately my code has never been accepted : http://gpl.insa-lyon.fr/~omega/xmpppy-ft.tar.gz). I've also done a patch for mediawiki and punbb to integrate Omnipresence in them.
I'm also one of the administrator of JabberFR, the french Jabber community. I give lots of Jabber related advices both on the forum and in the chatroom (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Why I'm reapplying
I want to stay involve in the XMPP community and to continue to promote this protocol.
