Sure. Like I said, I was just throwing those out. One of the reasons I came 
up with all those names tied to Java and Jabber was cos I thought we could 
maybe use the popularity of both Jabber and Java. I guess that is not 
entirely necessary if we have a kick-ass server ourselves :-)

So, when do we begin the real work? I think someone brought this up already, 
but I am also thinking it may be a good idea to get together with the 
jabelin folks to see if we can gain some insights early on. I guess we may 
also want to decide what we want to build -- another implementation of the 
jabber server in Java or an implementation of JAM which offers IM as one of 
its services or both? If we decide to do JAM, then we may also want to come 
up with a couple of other services apart from IM, so we can show the 
plug-n-play capabilities of a JAM framework.

>ps - It would also be nice if the name was decided along with a mascot.  :)
Sounds good. Got anything particular in mind?
