Right. The core streaming stuff is in XEP-0124, which BTW we might take
to the IETF for standardization there. A while back, Ian Paterson split
out the XMPP-specific stuff from XEP-0124 and placed it in XEP-0206
("XMPP Over BOSH"). But implementing XEP-0124 should get you 90% of the
Feedback is welcome on the spec and any implementation challenges you
run into. I know there has been discussion on the standards at xmpp.org
list about some ambiguities in XEP-0124, and we may run through it at
some point to clarify those issues. So let us know!
Thanks for working on this -- it seems like we're seeing more BOSH
implementations, which will help us ensure interoperability over time.
