I'm sorry for not knowing or not remembering, but just for us that
don't... Do you work for Jinc?

Just a question

There is a middle ground to be found here. As several people have noted,
there were fundamental differences in the design goals between the JINC
(yet-to-be-proposed) version and JEPs 21/24. That doesn't mean we can't
compromise and get them working together. This sort of contention is a
good thing to have in the community because it means that different
approaches to the same problem are being explored. Sometimes, that
exploration is better done without consultation of the community.

Both JEP 21 and 24 were put forward without a huge amount of community
effort or discussion. No one had their feelings hurt, no one seemed to
have any problems with them. Why does even the mention of a JINC
proposal seem to upset people so much?

I hardly know what to say beyond that. I'm frustrated by the assumptions
and alternative standards that people hold JINC (and correspondingly,
the long-time Jabber developers who work there) to.  I suppose it
happens when you have two entities which have such wildly different
goals trying to work together. There's bound to be tension.

I say all of this to get some of my own feelings out in the open. As
always, I am open to discussion about this matter and hope that we can
all just.."get along". :)

Onward, ho.
