I too see lots of messages like this:

2017-09-09 14:11:21.349 [warning] <0.21948.0>@ejabberd_c2s:process_info:246 got unexpected info: {item,{<<"russ">>,<<"library.tomsk.ru">>,<<>>},both}
2017-09-09 14:11:21.349 [warning] <0.21948.0>@ejabberd_c2s:process_info:246 got unexpected info: {item,{<<"school">>,<<"library.tomsk.ru">>,<<>>},both}

but the reporter says that "The roster group works fine and every
registered user is able to see every other registered user and their online
status," his only problem being the log growing too big.

 From what I have read about Issue #1846, when (in what version) can I
humbly expect the roster problem to be fixed?
