I believe Pub/Sub unifies Push and Pull technologies, as you have the advantages of pushing the information when you want and the advantage of getting only the information you want. It is thus a natural convergence point for both.

It would be very useful if the XMPP message coming from PubSub would include not only the pubsub subscription name, but also the specific search term that was matched.


I think it would have been quite clean if PubSub had come before the presence stanza. Presence is really, again, just another use case of publish/subscribe.

The server configuration guide [1] mentions

sysTopicsAdd.acl - Ability to manage Instant Messaging news channels

The user guide for the IM client mentions:
Administering and managing news channels
Assigning news channel access levels to end users
Assigning end users to news channels (subscribing)
Creating new news channels
Deleting messages from news channels
Deleting news channels
Posting messages in news channels
Removing end users from news channels

Their language seems strange, but I think it can be mapped to JEP 0060:
news channel = node
post = publish
some of the other stuff sounds like node configurations

If they're not using JEP 0060, they should be ;)
