Kev to start a discussion on standards@ to gauge community feeling
about this, with the option of revoting if the community feels that
this is the right approach. Comments include that the protoXEP is
excessively long for a simple feature, that it assumes XMPP
incompliant systems, that it makes assertions about the XMPP network
that don't appear accurate or substantiated, that it uses invalid
protocol and that a much simpler model exists (but may be unsuitable,
community discussion to follow).
This is documentation of a Google protocol. What track should it be?
None seem to fit - author doesn't think it's suitable for standards
track (should use stream features), Historical is only for pre-XSF
documents, and Informational is for BCP. Should the XEP types be
Much discussion (available in logs) about appropriate use of XEP
types, and acceptability of publishing non-standards-track protocol
when the deployed base is largely single-site. General agreement of
usefulness of this feature. Agreement that Council would like Board to
update the condition for Historical to mean either Pre-JSF *or*
developed outside standards-track. Council (ultimately) generally
happy to vote on pushing this to Historical (with XEP-0001 tweak),
with some members wanting a Standards Track proposal to obsolete it if
the community thinks there is a better approach.
