Description Martin 2014-01-26 13:44:16 UTC
Filled upstream:

Description of problem:
Gajim can't connect to Facebook XMPP server. Gajim is unable to receive Facebook roster and stays in "connecting" state forever. Gajim can receive messages and respond to them, but can't open new conversation. Also in "connecting" state user can't be sure if he can receive messages and Facebook doesn't support receiving offline messages via XMPP. This makes Facebook in Gajim practically useless and prone to losing messages.

This is caused by RFC violation in Facebook server implementation. But, there is an easy workaround in Telepathy and Pidgin also works for me.

Please consider adding same workaround into Gajim. It can be documented for now and removed when Facebook fixes their server.

Thank you for filing this with upstream.

I do not value tracking this BZ in both bugtrackers, so I'm going to close this one. Feel free to ping me when upstream has a fix. Then we can consider a backport or a rebase.
