Bug Description

Currently (as of 0.99.4+debian3-1) using the position sharing mode sends my location to http://www.tangogps.org/friends/update_pos.php. This is a wishlist bug for implementing the server side tools so that anyone could run their own position sharing service if they wish to do so (for example in a WLAN with no access to tangogps.org).

Changed in foxtrotgps:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
Changed in foxtrotgps:
status: New → Triaged

I think it would be better for FoxtrotGPS to support these:

 * the OpenStreetMap web APIs
 * XMPP XEP-0080 location-sharing extension

Anyone wanting to interface with a different server can support one or
both of those protocols.
