[standards-jig] NEW: Jabber 1.0 Protocol Suites (JEP-0073)

This evening I wrote the first draft of a JEP that defines three Jabber
protocol suites (Core, Basic, and Advanced). I feel strongly that such
definitions are necessary in order to stabilize and clearly define the
protocol, to enable efficient compliance testing, and to make it possible
for the JSF to effectively market this thing we call Jabber. While this
JEP is informational, it has fairly significant implications for many
existing protocols as well as for several protocols under development, so
I encourage you to read the JEP and sound off on the standards-jig list if
you have questions or concerns. Essentially this JEP seeks to answer the
perennial question "What is Jabber?", so hopefully the JEP will spark a
fruitful conversation in the Jabber community. Join in the fun by reading
the following URL (remember this is a first draft) and signing up for the
standards-jig list if you're not already subscribed.
