As I said in my original post, I was not trying to be rude.  I know that
everyone in the Foundation does not work for Jabber, you will note that my
name is on the list of Foundation members and I work for EER and own GSETSS.
I also know that you don't have to work for Jabber to attend the meetings, I
have read the minutes of all of the meetings.  You made a comment about the
poor attendance, and I simply stated the information which usually floats
around the e-mail of the win32 server types after one of these meetings.

Cool I can't wait to see this.
