>>What exactly are these "rules" that you speak of?
These rules are a set of requirements that IETF Greopriv WG recommends for
manage privacy and security concerns about presence and location information
of users. These rules are basically a XML document. This document include
instructions for detremining whom is available to receive the presence and
location information, when and where this information is disclose to others

I am agree with you and Peter about XMPP compliant, and i have interest in
no affect the core of jabber. In fact, i am looking a way for do this
without affect the jabber server. Let me explain better my problem.
With presence protocol basically we can know whom is online and if this
person is available (busy, away, etc), of course, for see the presence
status of other users we have to have authorization of the users.
Using jep-0060 we can publish user geolocation (jep-0080) to others users,
every susbscriber subscribe a topic, and each time that publisher put
information in the topic and event is delivery to each subscribe.
Now suppose this scenario, i am in my building's company and my geolocation
information is changing frecuently, i use a PDA and my jabber client know
where i am and publish this information to my co-workers, all my co-workers
have authorization to see my geolocation information. However i want that
some co-workers know only if i am in the building or not, because is all
information they need. When i am in the cafeteria or the bathroom i don't
like to disclose this information to anyone, my geolocation is only
available to some co-workers from monday to friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
and finally i want that some co-workers can susbcribe to my geolocation
information for 24 hrs only after that they don't receive more that
This issues are adressed by IETF Geopriv workgroup, and they create a set of
rules in xml format and they published it in a draft that manage above
requirements. This rules determine how the geolocation information reach to
My question is, there is a way that i can do this or somenthing similar
without affect the code jabber server?. There is a way for publishing
information, process it with some entity and after that disclose it?
I really will appreciate any suggestion.
