Indeed that was a good one.

As some of you might be aware, there is a desire to get to a 1.0 version 
of WebRTC, and there is a heated debate going on about that right now, 
specifically on the use of SDP as an API surface. I think we should let 
people active on the W3C public-webrtc and the IETF rtcweb mailing lists 
know we formed, with a short reasoning of why we thought we needed the 
SIG and maybe a brief summary of what Jingle really is.

The latter seems important to me, because reading those lists, people do 
seem to know of Jingle, but not much about it. This fuels some 
interesting side mentions of Jingle that are not accurate. For example, 
I've seen Jingle, or maybe more specifically XEP-0167, mentioned as 
merely an XML rendering of SDP. A brief visual inspection on the spec 
might give you the same idea if you didn't know better.
