[Gajim-devel] group chat handling?

first, sorry if I am filling the wrong place with user questions but to 
me this seems the only place to post these; most of the other means of 
contacts listed in the community wiki [1] seem not active or existent 
anymore... :(

Questions: We use an openfire server internally, for user-to-user 
communication and for one or two chat groups for communicating 
"important" things the whole team needs to know.

(1) In user-to-user chat, I have gajim configured to pop up a new window 
whenever a new message comes in, which is just how I want. With the team 
window minimized or hidden however, I regularly miss messages because I 
haven't found any way to make the group chat window come up whenever 
there's any activity in there. Is there a way to configure this behaviour?

(2) In the group chat, important messages usually get lost among loads 
of "user <xy> has joined the group" and "user <yz> has left the group". 
Can the group chat be configured to suppress such messages? They aren't 
of much use but greatly distract from actual content... ;)

Thanks in advance and all the best,
