Section 8.2 Jabber Interest Groups. The Jabber Council or Members of the
Corporation may, by resolution, establish one or more Jabber Interest Groups
from among the membership.

This says to me that JIGs must be formed of members.  As we both agree
though, this seems mostly moot being that there is pretty much no JIGs
proper any more.  Although, with our one standards jig left standing the
bylaws indicate it should have a chair...  Is there one?  Is that you Peter?

Right.  I apologize if I implied that your responsibilities were trivial!  I
guess I'm really trying to get more visibility and leadership...

Section 8.1 Jabber Council. The Corporation shall have an advisory council
("Jabber Council") to provide technical and business advice to the
Corporation and to oversee and direct the activities of any existing Jabber
Interest Groups.

The council may be overseeing us (how could we tell?) but I personally am
feeling very undirected and with little advice at the moment. ;)
