Hi Jehan,

All of your points (in these Pubsub emails) sounded quite reasonable to me, but I'm just a fringe subscriber...
I've been waiting on a number of Pubsub items too, but
Peter said that he was collecting the Pubsub errata
from me and would reply later, so maybe that's going on with your
questions on Pubsub...

best wishes,

wasn't the 3 points I raised in my 2 emails about pubsub not consistent
enough? I had no answer on any of these... :-/

Moreover the two points in my second email may be discussed, but it
looks to me that the first email is obviously a small bug in the XEP
because the title and the example does not correspond. No?
