See my previous message:

The Jabber Software Foundation is an independent, non-profit, membership
organization that has no legal relationship with or dependency on Jabber
Inc. (formerly "Jabber.com"), which is a for-profit corporation. The JSF
was formed in 2001 through the leadership of Jabber Inc. to function as
a neutral third party for defining and developing the protocols used by
our community. I am paid by Jabber Inc. to work on standardization of
XMPP and the various XMPP extensions, mainly through the JSF and IETF.
