After updating to debian strecht on getulum I checked the xmpp bot and it wasn't working. I'm still not sure if this is related to the update or due to an xmpp server policy or something. There is also no apparent error.

Replying to this ticket as I was pinged on IRC...

10:39 < traumschule> sukhe: mrphs: do you know what needs to be done to start the gettor XMPP bot? #23072

Replying to traumschule:

Trying to add get_tor at or send messages failed.

The actual address for the GetTor XMPP bot is gettor@… as documented on

That being said, I don't currently have an XMPP client handy to test things out. Nor I have access to the servers or the services running our bot. I suggest reaching out to ilv for further assistance.

Thanks, i was mislead by #18750. Still i did not receive any answer except: For security reasons, encryption is STRONGLY recommended for conversations on this server

After some discussion on IRC, we've decided to deprecate the usage of XMPP for GetTor. The XMPP bot has not been working for a long time and we're looking at other newer and more popular alternatives:
