Hi Mathew:

Thanks for posting this. For those of you who missed the meeting, this 
is a list of proposed Jabber Interest Groups (JIGs), which are working 
groups within the Foundation devoted to specific topics. Other JIG 
possibilities were bandied about in the meeting, I will be posting a 
meeting summary a little later that contains full information. The 
minutes (captured manually by yours truly) are temporarily here, 
although a permanent URL is forthcoming:
