Newly added Pade Meetings plugin (SparkMeet) causes Spark to sometimes sit 20-30 seconds in Authenticating stage on login. The time seems to increase if a server actually has Openfire Meetings installed.
Marked this as a blocker as even people who doesn't use Meetings will have this plugin and it will downgrade their experience for no value return.
On my local test server (Spark on the same machine) increase from 2 to 8 secs.
Logging in to Ignite server increase from 5 to 20 secs.
Users can always disable any plugin, but this can only done after the initial bad experience.
Therefore, I suggest we go back to having it disabled by default and only enabled by users who create custom builds of Spark and know what they are doing.
Have noticed that Spark takes around 8 seconds to login to my test Openfire server anyway (even without Ofmeet on the server and Pade Meetings plugin). This is some issue with Openfire as Spark takes a second to login to jabber.at which uses another XMPP server.
After including Pade Meetings plugin again i still get 8 seconds delay on login. So this doesn’t seem to be the case.
