I was wondering if the XMPP standard defines support for temporary/disappearing messages, and apparently it does via XEP-0079. But Prosody, which is the server I run, doesn’t support it. Anyone know why this is, or if it’s on the roadmap?

Seems like a rather obscure feature that can not be enforced client side anyways. What do you want it for?

It’s not an obscure feature, it’s very standard amongst the non-federated chat messengers. I want it because I don’t want to worry about chat logs on other people’s machines.

Well as I said, impossible to do. Anyone could just run a client that ignores these suggestions (as most clients probably will given the obscurity of that XEP).

Edit: also what you ask for isn’t the purpose of that XEP:

  • Reliable data transport – the sender requires notification (positive and/or negative) of message delivery.
  • Time-sensitive messages – the message is valid only until a certain date and time.
  • Transient messages – the message should not be stored offline for later delivery.
