Support XEP-0084 User Avatars (PEP-based)
Submitted by Simon McVittie
Assigned to Telepathy bugs list
XEP-0084, (PEP-based) User Avatars, is in Last Call. We should consider implementing it, with vCard-avatar backwards compatibility, much like the way we support both PEP-based and legacy nicknames.
It looks reasonably simple to implement. A metadata PEP node (to which we're meant to subscribe) pushes out metadata updates, which replace the SHA-1 seen in presence; a data PEP node (to which we're not meant to subscribe) contains the avatar itself, replacing the vCard.
