I maintain an XMPP server for an organization and on the server
arrange contacts into appropriate groups. An average user will be a
member of 5 to 7 groups; some are part of as many as 12 groups.
The difficulty is that in Jitsi each contact is listed in only one
Yes, this has come up on occasion but we haven't got around to implementing it yet.
To arrange a meeting, say, of the London group, I will also
have to look in the Administrative group, the Technical group and the
Executive Committee group. It results in a very disarranged listing of
contacts - as no one is ever quite certain where they will locate the
contact they need.
Right, currently the thinking is that people would simply lookup contacts using the search field rather than browse through groups.
We've tried to provide search features every where where browsing for users is involved.
Would allowing users the option to duplicate contacts in each group be
an option to solve this problem? Thus John Doe, with whom I share
membership in the London and Technical groups, would appear in both
It's really not a matter of allowing or forbidding it. The current implementation of our contact list features is based on the notion that a contact can only have a single parent and we'd need to refactor quite a lot of stuff for this to change.
We'd like to do this at some point, but it's not a top of the list priority at this point.

Thanks as always for your help.
