> Here is an informal description of the proposed technical review team.
> ***
> The XSF's Technical Review Team is responsible for completing technical
> reviews of XMPP Extension Protocols (XEPs). The team can review
> specifications on its own initiative or when requested to do so by the
> XMPP Council, and at any stage in the XSF's standards process, including:
>  * Before a "ProtoXEP" is accepted for publication by the XMPP Council
>  * While a XEP is in the Experimental state
>  * During a Last Call related to advancement of a specification from
> Experimental to Draft (or Active)
>  * While a XEP is in the Draft state
>  * During a Call for Experience related to advancement of a
> specification from Draft to Final
>  * While a XEP is in the Final state
> ***
> This team is yet to be formed. I think it would be structured like
> similar teams at the IETF (apps-review, gen-art, secdir, xmldir). We
> will have a team lead and a "roster" of volunteers who tell the team
> lead what topics they are interested in or have expertise in. The team
> lead will then assign reviews to particular people on the team. Because
> we don't have *that* many specifications to review, I would expect that
> each team member will probably review one or two specs a year, depending
> on how many people want to serve on this team. We would also define a
> review template to make the reviewer's job easier. The team lead would
> be responsible for tracking pending and completed reviews. Reviews would
> be sent to the standards at xmpp.org list.

I'm interested in leading or being a member of this group.  I think
this group could encourage implementations of XEPs, encourage
community participation in the XEP process, etc.
