I've been thinking about what to do with jabber.org. Not that it's up to
me -- the jabber.org domain is owned by Jeremie Miller. But I think Jer
would agree to any reasonable use of the domain as long as it benefits
the Jabber community.

I think what I'd like to see is a user-driven community site (probably
run on Drupal) and related services. Whether that site has any formal
relationship to the XMPP Software Foundation is an open question. My
feeling is that it would not, but that the XSF would (at least for the
time being) host jabber.org on its servers. The jabber.org services
would be run by an all-volunteer group and would not require a formal
organization (no, I don't like all this voting and membership stuff any
more than you do, but it's necessary for the JSF/XSF to maintain its
legal status).

I like the name "Jabber Community Forum" for this loose network of
volunteers. Here's what I think the JCF might offer:

http://www.jabber.org/ -- a friendly site introducing end users,
developers, sysadmins, and business people to Jabber technologies

http://code.jabber.org/ -- a replacement for JabberStudio, running SVN
and Trac

xmpp:jabber.org -- a public IM server with related components
