@vanitasvitae fix me if I wrong, but statuses are describes statuses of recourses, not device. Currently, if desktop client is "away" and phone status is "online", you will see both statuses simultaneously. I do not see any issues here


@shura @vanitasvitae Modern IM clients are centered around the concept of "Contacts". They don't show multiple resources etc. So they need a way to determing a single "status" for a user.
Personally I don't think statuses are such a crucial feature, though.

@stevenroose @shura @vanitasvitae
Actually this might not be entirely true. Some clients are also centered around the concept of "Open Chats" (contacts are a side-effect and may not be shown directly)
