Hello
referring to my earlier posts in the "Is this thing on?" thread
I want to set up a XMPP library working group with the following 
aims:

1.Create an official standard for library design (API design, not in 
programming language)
2.Think about ways how the amount of work of an application/client 
programmer can be reduced to the minimum (in example „user's default 
JID“ that will be used by the libraries automatically)
3.Work on a model to integrate XMPP into desktop and OS:
- Find a way to make the „user's default JID“ accessible through this 
new API design
- Add standard tools that might come with the libraries to 
setup/register a „user's default JID“ and that match smoothly into 
the system control tools of the desktop

A model I was already working on is

http://xcd.jabberstudio.org

I just want to make developers work together to make it more easy to 
write simple XMPP applications. Whatever I do not automatically 
expect this to be the basis.

Please back me with creation of this working group. We would need a 
mailing list and of course a Wiki would be good, too. For example if 
someone could sponsor a public Wiki we could imediately go the way...

Johannes
