BTW, we may create a special Gajim subgroup at Salsa if your prefer.
Or just use a plain structure as now.

I am going to move my personal packages psi-plus* to this team.
(They are not outdated.)   ;-)

Also I have already sent invitation for developers of these packages:

I have intentionally ignored all source packages:
* with multi-protocol clients software (all in one)
* with plugins for multi-protocol clients software
* with plugins for specifical software (for example, elpa-jabber)
* with libraries written in programing languages which has own mainterners
  teams, for example:
  + jabberbot, pyxmpp, sleekxmpp and others are written in python and
    are maintained in Debian Python Modules Team
  + libnet-jabber-bot-perl, libnet-jabber-perl  and others are written
    in perl and are maintained in Debian Perl Group
  + etc.
* related to ejabberd [1][2] (in my opinion there are too many packages 
  there, so a separate team makes sense)

Also I am in doubt about some packages with XMPP bots. For example,
jabber-querybot and jirc look completely unmaintained.

Do you know other XMPP related packages which might be moved to our team?
