About this Contributor Invite:
- Task Area: Documentation
- Effort rating: 2/5
- Skills required: Being a FreedomBox user, English
Description of the Problem:
Ejabberd is an instant messaging server that FreedomBox provides. Once this service is setup, a user needs to install and configure a client application to connection to the XMPP/Jabber instance network. Providing the details for configuring the clients involves providing many details about the server. It can be overwhelming to new users. And currently, our manual does not adequately document the process of connecting to ejabberd server from Jabber clients. This has left our users under-informed.
What we ask of you:
Document the process of connecting to ejabberd server from Jabber clients in the FreedomBox Manual. In order to get this documentation entered into the FreedomBox Manual within the FreedomBox OS, you simply need to edit a wiki page hosted on https://wiki.debian.org. Please edit the following page: https://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox/Manual/ejabberd
We ask that you make the following edits to the ejabberd manual page:
- In Ejabberd manual page for FreedomBox, write a section about configuring Xabber app on Android to connect to FreedomBox server with screenshots.
- In Ejabberd manual page for FreedomBox, write a section about configuring Gajim app on GNU/Linux to connect to FreedomBox server with screenshosts.
- In the configuration instructions, the domain name used should not be an IP address but a real-world domain name such as myserver.freedombox.rocks.
