Do you speak snake? A Jabber server written on the Python Twisted framework.
This is a new project of mine/Bryght's. I've long been an advocate for the Jabber/XMPP protocol. Now, I'm hoping to give something back plus form a community around a new jabber server daemon. For now, just redirects to a wiki where we'll organize and add some more details. Feel free to add "like to have" or other ideas of what you want to see out of a new Python-based jabberd.
Update: we changed the name to Pretzel. There is currently a placeholder project up at Google Code Hosting: Pretzel Server
