Hi Dave,

Any. The immediate goal, apart from acquiring new contacts, is for the XSF
to get marketing value from this, to be able to show case XMPP usage with
recognizable products/services.

The longer-term goal is to establish a mutually beneficial relationship
with organizations that we're not necessarily in contact with today. The
definition of those benefits could be part of the initial dialogue. Ideas
that are floating around include exchanging protocol insights/expertise,
sponsoring, process improvements,  development and/or publication of XEPs,
and so on - but I'd love more input here.

Regards,

  Guus
