About me

My name is Grégoire Menuel, I'm 22 years old, and I've just began working for a french computer company in Lyon.

Jabber related projects

Jabber servers administration

I'm currently the main administrator of the biggest frecnch Jabber server, Jabber@Apinc, which host among others the domains and This server has around 1,400 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 component. I've haven't been hacking much for it lately.

  • Omnipresence is a jabber component allowing to easily display one's presence

on the web. It is currently used at It supports showing some PEP informations (Mood, Tune and Activity) in addition to showing the avatar and the status of the user.

  • I've done some Jabber integration in some web soft. I've modified the Jabber

bot Neutron in order to send notifications when someone post a message on the forum and the wiki of JabberFR. I've also integrated omnipresence in this to applications, this way we can easily see if a user is connected on Jabber or not.

  • Recently I've developed a "Random Chat", it is a component which can start

chat between two persons at random. The project is used at


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 ( With the help of others, we have been having a JabberFR booth for the second year at the JDLL, one of the major free software event in France.

Why I'm reapplying

I want to stay involve in the XMPP community and to continue to promote this protocol. I also want to help the XSF to do more marketing stuffs. I think that if we want XMPP to be used by everybody we should began to talk about it more, one way to promote Jabber could be to sell Jabber related T-shirts, or other goodies.
