[Foundation] JIGs and JEEPs

So, if I understand it right, projects may want but dont need to use JIG's and
JEEP's and such. Thats good, as each person will have their own style.

Providing the "JabberForge" functionality is great too. Will jabelin use this?
I hope so, as it will set the pace for things...jabber.org as David says will
probably host this, right?

I hope that projects will use the JIG lists as announces and general discussion,
at the very least.

So is there a Jabelin JIG then? (Or server jig, or whatever we call this..)

Regarding the problem of overlap..I was thinking..does a JIG need more than an
anoounce list. For example client issues seem discussed most on jdev, so an additional mailing list may be used only for JIG membership and announces..discussion
will continue on jdev..

I'll update JEEP-2 with the list of JIGS when rough consensus emerges, and
add in Peter's text...
