I think that to maintain compatibility with the in-browser chat just:

Online
Away (Idle)
Offline

should be ok.

Fabio is correct.  The XMPP interface is conforming to the chat states
that we use in Facebook Chat.  Oneline and Offline are obvious.  Free
for Chat is treated as an alias for Online.  Away, Not Available and Do
not Disturb are all compressed down into "the blue moon" (idle), which
is then shown as Away to other XMPP clients.

Okay, but is an Away status in the third party client really propagated
to the "blue moon" in Facebook?  Currently, I can't see that, or the
delay is very long.  It's really only "online" or "offline".

Please reopen.

No, if I set my client state to  Away, Not Available and Do not Disturb
I still result as available on Facebook. This is a bug

Same here. Presence updates (any of the show types) from a client to
chat.facebook.com are not propagated at all, even though
http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Integrating_with_Facebook_Chat
claims it is possible to change to the idle status.

chat.facebook.com just completely silently ignores any presence stanzas.

We are seeing the same results.  Facebook does not set you as idle when
sending a status of "away"

Perhaps #10308 should be marked as a duplicate of this or this should be
marked as a duplicate of #10308

Because it is very important...

If you have a problem for correct this bug, you can see the ejabberd
code, a XMPP server based on Erlang...

In the same time, can you see for correct the #8744 / #8752 / #8764 /
#8773 / #8807 / #8808 / #9032 / #9204 / #9589 / #9734 bugs ?

Get a real life facebook, and stop blocking people who do nothing wrong.

This is caused by bug 9734 - mishandling of privacy settings - and is
unrelated to this issue.

No, simply tell all your friends to not use facebook chat and switch to
google talk ;)

You DO realize that google talk has similar issues, regarding the
statuses "chatty" and "extendad away" (defined in the XMPP RFC).

This may be similar but is one order of magnitude less severe.  Not
being able to tell your contacts that you are absent for a particularly
long time is a pitty, but not being able at all to tell them that you
are absent is close to unacceptable for an "instant message" service.

Note that there are very few clients that can disconnect from certain
accounts while you are (only) absent.

In September last year we introduced a new tool for tracking bugs on
Platform (https://developers.facebook.com/blog/post/559/). Since then
we've been working to close out all the remaining issues in Bugzilla
(many of which are out of date and no longer relevant) so we can focus
all our efforts on bugs filed in the new tool. As this is a wishlist
item and hasn't had much recent activity, we're going to close it. If
this is still an issue, you can refile it in the new bug tool
(http://developers.facebook.com/bugs). Thanks.

Facebook chat availability is binary: a user is either online or
offline. The "idle" concept has gone away entirely. Currently, if a user
has a jabber session, they are treated as online, regardless of what
they set their status to. There are no plans to change this behavior.
