What I understand from Lucas' mail is that he would like projects like
distributed monitoring of the Jabber Network (which he did propose) :
http://wiki.jabber.org/index.php/Summer_of_Code_2006#Federation
An other example of a project non-related to a specific client or server
would be a tool to test XMPP compliancy of clients or servers.
Maybe also writting a component which could be plugged on any Jabber server
would enter this category.
So on...


I agree that it would be good to have some of these projects but I do not
see it as a problem to have projects related to a specific client or server
as long as they are innovating or original and not just day to day work on a
software.

For example, making a software (client or server) support a JEP that nobody
else support would benefit a lot to the all Jabber community. However,
making a software support a JEP that many other softwares already support
would not benefit as much to the Jabber community and would be too software
specific.

Does everybody else agree ?
