Key details

  • Please also see the Frequently Asked Questions

  • Debian Developers have access to the following services

  • The following services are NOT available yet but are being planned or under consideration
    • BOSH Support, to connect to the XMPP server over HTTPS
  • You must create a real-time communications (RTC) password in the LDAP system: login to update your settings, then fill the RTC password field.

    • Do not use the same password that you use for any other Debian service. For example, you may want to cache the RTC password in a mobile device where there is a risk that it will be compromised, exposing the password.
    • Wait 30 minutes for the password to become active.
  • Your debian.org email address is also your XMPP address

Contact and support

  • For general questions about individual softphones, please contact the maintainers or upstream mailing lists
