I know about ejabberd. I use it on several servers.
I am unaware, however, how ejabberd can be (internally Erlang-like, not
using standard XMPP protocol) distributed across multiple FreedomBoxes.
Information on how to do that would be quite interesting. For me,
perhaps others here as well, and most likely also for the Debian
maintainer of ejabberd!
