Sjoerd Simons at Collabora is looking at NM 0.7 for us.

Currently we have lots of XO-specific patches (for msh0 etc) in NM
0.6.5 which were not sent/accepted upstream. Due to significant NM
changes these patches cannot be applied to 0.7 so the work has to be
redone and hopefully improved such that it is upstream-friendly. I
can't seem to find a ticket for this.

Secondly, Presence Service needs to be updated to handle API changes
in NM: #6248
