#26 RET on a groupchat roster item doesn't open groupchat


When I add a groupchat contact to the roster and then press RET on it, a private chat to the groupchat is opened. I think this doesn't make sense, for two reasons: 1. I'd expect entering the groupchat buffer instead of a private chat buffer; 2. Private chat to a groupchat doesn't make sense to me and is not allowed (at least on my server) anyway.

    BTW, RET will open groupchat buffer IF you already joined MUC. And you can use 'j' and bookmarks to join conferences.

    Patch, anyone? Scheme like this: 1) join && enter muc buffer IF we not in muc 2) enter muc IF we already in muc (already work).

    Hm, when I hit RET in the roster, on a groupchat I'm already in, I still get the 1to1 chat buffer...

    Anyway, this shouldn't be too hard. RET is bound to jabber-chat-with-jid-at-point, which could be modified to send a disco info request before. If the JID has identity conference/text, join as groupchat, else start 1to1 chat.

    The latency could be painful, though. Right now RET brings a chatbuffer instantly; the disco query could take a few seconds, which could completely break your flow. A sneaky solution could be to open a 1to1 buffer, do the query in the background, and if it turns out to be a groupchat, replace the 1to1 buffer with the groupchat one...
