[jitsi-users] FEATURE SUGGESTION: Store multiple OTR keys for a contact


#1

Hello Everyone,

I'm sure I'm not alone in that I use Jitsi from both multiple
locations and in several dual-boot situations. It would be nice to be
able to store multiple OTR keys for each contact to accommodate
connecting with people through the same accounts from different
locations.

While I'm sure I could probably just copy the keys over to each
installation, it's not seamless and presents an unneeded barrier to
those who might be new to Jisti. A multi-key solution, in my opinion,
would be elegant and preferred.

Thanks,
Anthony Papillion

If I understand your suggestion correctly, it is the same idea briefly
discussed here:

I think it would be a nice feature and I imagine a contribution would be
welcome.
