Presence turned off?

I’m using Element Desktop for connecting to Fedora rooms and in all rooms I always see all users as offline (mine too).
I’m not sure if this is a bug of Element Desktop or the effect of some setting server side.

Searching online I’ve found a couple of bugs opened Matrix side which make me think that Fedora Matrix server has the presence feature turned off:

This is a feature that I really miss from IRC, is it possible to turn it on?

I’ll ask. I don’t think we turned it off intentionally.

I’m told that it’s off on all federated servers, because of the performance issues.

:cry: well, that’s definitely a regression from IRC.

I hope it can be turned on in near future.
Thanks for the info.
