Planned Pubsub/PEP migration to MySQL

We are planning to migrate Pubsub/PEP (Publish-Subscribe / Personal Eventing Protocol) from Mnesia to MySQL in the very near future, which means the next two days.

Unfortunally there is no export/import script, so all data will be lost. It is also impossible to export own data from a client, at least I was told so.

Migration should fix some problems with PEP, also MySQL allows more administration and has less resource overhead.

Server offline due to maintenance work this morning

The server was offline this morning because of Kernel and MySQL upgrade. It would have happened faster if the server rebooted cleanly after “shutdown -r now” which it didn’t. So we had to send someone there to reset the machine manually.

We also upgraded Spectrum to support JID escaping. If this works after our tests (there seem to be some problems with clients who don’t support the unofficial % character which is used for @) I write more about this here.
