Sorry for the late reply. Somehow only got around replying to it now.

This sounds all sensible. I'll contact our XMPP IoT SIG and propose we
setup a meeting where interested council members can join in and discuss
our IoT strategy, especially considering the IEEE IoT group, together with

Ideally the meeting will result in:
- having a person interested acting as liaison between the XMPP IoT SIG and
the IEEE IoT group
- that person being fully supported by the XMPP Council
- coming up with a strategy for what to do with our current IoT XEPs ( i
remember a rough discussion about that at the recent Brussels meeting)

@Rikard: Would you mind setting up a XMPP IoT SIG meeting, where the
Council could join in and we can discuss this issue?
