I seriously second that.
A sharp target group is required before we go to implementation details.

Do we want to have

a) more tech savy people ? This includes linux developers, linux users, 
producers, developers, supporters, gurus, decision makers, professional 
it people, tech affine people of any age.
* As information rich as possible
* As concise as possible
* As deep information as possible

b) more windows end users ?  This includes grandmas, teens, people at 
home, pupils at school, non-tech affine people of any age.
* As little complexity on the site as possible
* As service and feature rich as necessary
* As user friendly and usable as possible

c) a mixture of the above ?

In my eyes, we should go with target group (b) for jabber.org and (a) 
for xmpp.org.
