Hmm, interesting. I've had no problems here with 3 XOs all seeing each
other, either via Mesh, or the single AP I have here. For most of the
last ~4 months I've usually had them all with a blank jabber server
setting and have been test collaborating locally. Actually, it's much
more testable/repeatable now that the jabber server is not set by
default, the default always seemed to be off-line; broken due to
server load; or more recently, running some test Gadget build that
prevented you from seeing anyone else.
Actually that raises a question, did Gadget make it in to the 8.2.1
build? Or is this still a future maybe? I take it it is/would be a
Sugar future feature/dependancy?
