Ok, so I took Matt's document, and following suggestions from David, Colin,
Matt, Iain, and myself, merged biz andcompliance, renamed protocol as
standard, and mobed protocol and transport to server JIGS.

I worked also on a proposal for JEEP..Jabber EnhancEment Proposal.

See http://nareau.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jeep/jeep-0002.txt?rev=1.2&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

for a draft, written in JEEP form, which is just renamed PEP form, which I
stole lock stock and barrel from the python guys.

The URL
http://nareau.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jeep/jeep-0001.txt?rev=1.2&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

contains the JEEP proposal itself, 
which is patterned on the PEP idea wich has been
a success in the python community.

The URL
http://nareau.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jeep/jeep-0000.txt?rev=1.2&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

contains a list of jeeps.

Now if you are wondering why I wrote this all in JEEP's it is to give some
idea of how JEEP's would be used, if we adopted them. I think they will enhance
communication..and their being in jeeps means the jeeps procedure could be
used to bootstrap their acceptance, if people like the idea..

Presently acceptance is not by voted but by a smaller core group, with Jer acting as benevolent dictator. This is a strawman, but I wanted to get a procedure
out there for people to comment on, diss, etc..

One thing we must clarify is how to organize existing lists, like jamdev and jdev into the JIG structure..they dont need to be so, but it would help a newbie
in jabberland.

I will send the JEEP's in my next 3 emails to this list for those who prefer
to read under email..

so lets all talk about whether this JIG structure is good, and if people
see value in JEEP's...
