Since we haven't had a good controversy on this list in at least a week,
I figured I'd stir things up again. As you may know, Tony Bamonti and I
have been working to recruit sponsors for the JSF. When we describe what
the JSF does, sponsors (as well as journalists and the general public)
often find it confusing that we're the Jabber Software Foundation but
we don't create or distribute software (in the way that, say, the Apache
Software Foundation does). Instead, what the JSF does is manage and
promote the Jabber protocol, thus setting standards for use by the
Jabber community. So I'm thinking it might be easier to communicate our
mission if JSF stood for "Jabber Standards Foundation".
