Yes, the presence service operates either over the mesh, or via a Jabber
server if you have Internet access. However due to scalability issues,
the G1G1 software is not configured with a real jabber server by
default. There is no way we could handle the 100,000 G1G1 laptops trying
to connect to the current infrastructure.

We are working on server scalability issues for Update.1, at which time
there will be a new software release and hopefully a usable server.

I do NOT recommend anybody advising G1G1 users to connect to the current
developer jabber servers, as that will ensure that those servers become
unusable for the development community.

The best alternative we can offer at this stage is
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Run_your_own_jabber_server which points to the
ejabberd configuration currently in use, and which will be kept up to
date as we test additional Jabber servers.
