Default the server name for the SameTime instant messaging server during the Client installation.

If using the MS Windows install with silent install, edit the silentinstall.ini and update the STSERVERNAME and STCOMMUNITYNAME fields. If tunnelling, update the STSERVERPORT from 1533 to 80.

For 8.0x, the installer (Windows and OSX, Linux is still RPM), the actual Sametime FEATURES configuration is now part of the update site "provisioning". Basically, you copy the files (whole folder except the Linux RPM) to a network folder is has read access by the installer.

- the install manifest file (deploy/install.xml)
- updating the plugin_customization.ini file (deploy/plugin_customization.ini)
