Sure there is, each and every transport/service I packaged has a
README.Debian with full instructions on how to make it work.  In the
last week, I've added a support to start and stop the individual
transports when they are installed/upgraded/removed and the ability to
control whether they should be enabled or not on the system.  This too
is documented in the package README.Debian.

The basic steps for all the transports are to install the package, edit
the jabber.xml to add two entries (one for the connection and one for
the service announcement or browse functionality).  If you're using
the packages from the last week, edit the /etc/default file for the
package and enable it (change ENABLED="0" to ENABLED="1") and then
restart jabber.
