Description Marco Barisione 2009-04-20 07:06:19 UTC
The default resource when connecting to a gabble server is Telepathy. This means that if you configure the same account on 2 different devices and don't set the resource (quite common as people don't know what a resource is) then you will not be able to connect from both at the same time.
Using a random resource would solve this.

The attached branch implements using a random resource.
Comment 2 Guillaume Desmottes 2009-05-14 08:54:09 UTC

Comment 3 Will Thompson 2009-05-19 07:48:12 UTC
Merged, will be in telepathy-gabble 0.7.28.
