[ejabberd] another mod_service_log question

Thanks, this led me to dig into the code for ejabberd_c2s where I found that only packets *actually* sent by the user are run through the user_send_packet hook. The "unavailable" packet generated internally by terminate/3 is not sent to that hook. Fortunately, as Badlop implied, I found that there are other hooks I can tap into: unset_presence and sm_remove_connection, depending on my exact need.

Just wondering - is there a developer doc that explains this information, namely a list of the available hooks and their role in the ejabberd data flow?
