on the jep stuff i agree. We have lots of jeps now, and lots of them have dependencies to many other jeps.
So for a developer that isnt involved that much in xmpp its very hard to find correct jeps.
Some pages with proposals which jeps to use for which case would be cool. And which jeps current software is using. E.g. for file x-fer.
