[Standards] Status of XEP-xxxx: Sensor-over-XMPP

Hello Hannes

I'm sorry to see I missed your mail. Could you mail me this again? (Also to peterwaher at hotmail.com). Perhaps it got lost in an e-mail filter, which seems to happen a lot unfortunately :(, both ways.

Regarding HTTP: We're not using HTTP a lot in our sensor communication yet, mostly in research projects. However, we're also pushing for web 3.0 technology, i.e. sensor data using semantic web technologies, which is mainly (but not necessarily) based on HTTP(S). We believe this to be the future of IoT also. If we could intermarry XMPP & web 3.0 technologies, would be great, and is one of my hopes/goals to achieve within the XSF. (However, it would require multiple XEP's.)

Hi all, 

I was actually wondering myself about the status of XMPP & SIP usage for sensors. I dropped Peter a mail a month ago to hear more about the deployment situation. 
It seems that if there are implementations then they are using HTTP.

Before proposing an extension by ourselves, I've been waiting to find colleagues working in the same area, so we could propose an extension together, this increasing the probability for it to become useful.

Is it set in stone, or is it possible to work on it, redefine parts of it, etc., in order for it to become more general and suitable also to our needs? Are you able to invite other authors to partake in the development of this proposed extension?
