I can see that there´s a new feature on Openfire 3.4.1, which is the "Roster" option under User Menu. There we can have access to all contacts that the user may have. It would be great if we could have also a list of the IM contact list in this option. I imagine that it would demand some change in the tool's concept, because all contacts (including those from IM) should have to be recorded in the server, not just in the client.
Well, it's just a guessing or an opinion of how to turn it even better.
