The XMPP server on jabber.laptop.org is configured so that every user is subscribed to the presence of every other user, using a feature known as "shared roster". This does not scale well to large numbers of users. In the long term, we're planning to move away from using the shared roster entirely (see #5309); in the short term, for Update.1, we need to try and make the shared roster smaller, by restricting it to one or another subset of all the people an the server.
