"Log all instant messages" results in server side Message Archiving (XEP-0313)

Reported by: heyjoe Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.13.0 Keywords:

Description

STR:

  1. Enable "Log all instant messages" in preferences
  2. Use XMPP account to login in Pidgin
  3. Send/receive some messages
  4. Shut down Pidgin
  5. Start Gajim and login using the same XMPP account

RESULT:

All instant messages appear (downloaded from the server)

  1. Exit Gajim
  2. Start Pidgin
  3. Disable "Log all instant messages" in preferences
  4. Repeat 3-5

RESULT:

The messages exchanged after step 6 don't appear in Gajim.

EXPECTED:

Separate options allowing individual control for:

  • local saving of message logs without enforcing (a potentially privacy disrespecting) automatic message archiving on the server.
  • Message Archiving (in case someone wants to use that server side option)

The second one should be off by default.

ACTUAL:

Pidgin enforces all (server + local logs) or nothing (neither) with the former enabled by default.
