Here are the current proposed JIGS.  Notice the focus is going to be on
major individual protocol extensions and pervasive technology

1. Generic Conferencing -- will define a workable, extensible protocol for
conferencing/groupchat (cf. Dave Waite's work on a draft protocol) 

2. File Transfer (cf. Jer's initial work on PASS) 

3. Security -- will focus on authentication, message encryption, connection
security, etc. 

4. Standards Compliance -- will publish standards for Jabber technologies
and practices (such as Jabber derivative brands)

5. Text Formatting -- will determine the protocol for sending and receiving
formatted messages in Jabber (e.g., via XHTML) 

6. Browsing -- the replacement for agents, defined as a draft protocol.

7. Message Filtering  -- defines the mechanisms to filter messages based on
a variety of criteria.

8. Presence Management -- describe in detail how presence management
currently works, and work on proposals for extensions like invisibility).
