[ejabberd] Can I create chat room on the server instead of client

Hi Shaun,

Thanks for your reply!

I'm working on FusionForge(an open source project management system) and
want to integrate ejabberd with it. My purpose is that I can create a chat
room for each project and the members of the project can be added
automatically to the room too.

A week, I modify a perl script  which use ejabberdctl to synchronize
Fusionforge groups with ejabberd shared rosters and provide such functions:
1. create users, update password of existing users, delete non-existing
2. create new rosters, fill them with new users, delete users deleted
from Fusionforge

I find roster is just not enough which only add project members to the
buddy list. So I wonder if I can create room from each project.

Thanks for your python script! It makes me easier to achieve my object. May
I ask can I set the owner of the chatting room and invite other people to
the room(it can be done from the client you know)?

Thanks for recommending mod_multicast! I read the README file but I don't
understand why it's actually doing.
