We would also love to see this feature, it doesn't have to be done over
SIP, in fact it would be easier for us to do over a simple XML/JSON API
Note that XCAP doesn't use SIP. XCAP contacts are downloaded over HTTP.
You just use it with SIP accounts in Jitsi.
I did look at OpenXCAP but could not get running on CentOS, and it did
seem to be a bit overkill for a simple contacts list.
Well I suppose it is... however, it's already implemented, so in that
sense it's a lot less of an overkill than designing and implementing
support for a new format.
You really should give OpenXCAP another try. It just works and it would
allow you to do exactly what you need.
It would be fine to be 'read only' for the clients, and can be used as
part of provision script to provide some preset contacts.
Well ... we also support a mechanism we call XiVO which retrieves
contacts over JSON ... but I'd advise you go for XCAP.
There's also LDAP support. That might also work for you.
I hope one of the above would work for you guys. I don't think we'll
have the time to do yet another (proprietary) contact storage method in
the foreseeable future.

I want to ask your help, I hope that this is the right mailing list.
My client wants to alter the jitsi code so that the contact list will be
updated/download from a server file/service. The use case is that when
the user log in, jitsi will be download an updated contact list that has
already some contacts (ex. preaccepted 10 contacts).
I suppose you need to do this with SIP?
Do you think that this functionality is possible? If so, can you point
me some start up point in the code to look? Where to start?
Sounds like all you need is an XCAP server. Why not simply using OpenXCAP?
I will try to fix some minor bugs to get familiar with the code first.
You would be most welcome to do so!
