Dear XEP folks :-)

since the great work of Daniel Brötzmann (aka wurstsalat3000) not just
brought us a new website generator (Hugo) but also Mermaid
visualizations, I would like to invite you to join the discussion on how
to meaningful show basic connection between RFCs and XEPs as an overview
of how to get started with the XMPP protocol.

I think this will help understanding, reviewing but also onboard
newcomers to XMPP and make the whole protocol more attractive and easier
to understand.

Let me know if you think it is a good idea! I don't know yet how it
could look like and how we should discuss a draft, but if you wanna to
crazy and provide a direct draft - please go ahead. Otherwise you reach
us in the main MUCs.

Maybe you can write some connections you think are important as:

XEP-0001 --> XEP-0002 <--> XEP-0003 (add comments anywhere you like)

Then I will try to visualize it meaningful. It does not need to be
complex and detailed by hard. Let's start simple.

Here is a pad if that helps:
