This patch implements authentication based on an external authinfo file (ala FTP).

Actually it just support a file. Future enhancements will likely add an authinfo-alist (in addition of a file).

Please review/comment/correct.

Patch made against CVS HEAD as of 2007-08-14.

    Ok, here is my first try to implement a jabber-account-list alist.

    It adds support for multiple connections or one connection (given the account name).

    Please try this.
    File Added: jabber-connect.el

    Thanks a lot, and sorry about the delay... I just committed a modified version of your patch. Let's see if this works...

    If I understand correctly, only one of those two patches ever made it into emacs-jabber.

    The other adds support for ~/.authinfo; Is there still a chance for inclusion?

    Ah, you're right, I missed that part. And just the other day I was thinking that it would be nice if jabber.el would read authinfo files :)

    I'd rather have it use the auth-source library than reading the authinfo file directly, though. I'll see if I can come up with a patch for that... (though feel free to beat me to it!)
