Re: [Ekiga-list] ekiga client startup sequence - all contacts sent to the server.


I believe sending contacts out without informing the user is a severe privacy violation.

Comments, anyone?

Debugging some connectivity problems I noticed that upon startup ekiga
sends SUBSCRIBE requests for every entry in Contacts tab. For example:

Request-Line: SUBSCRIBE sip:501 ekiga net SIP/2.0

and server replies with

Status-Line: SIP/2.0 489 Event Not Supported

Why would ekiga advertise one's contact list contents?

It tries subscribing to various types of events :
- presence changes
- call notifications

Not all events are supported by all servers, Ekiga just tries them all.
