At its meeting on July 25, 2012, the XMPP Council agreed to issue a
"Call for Experience" regarding XEP-0071 (XHTML-IM), in preparation for
perhaps advancing this specification from Draft to Final in the XSF's
standards process. To help the Council decide whether this XEP is ready
to advance to a status of Final, the Council would like to gather the
following information:

1. What software has implemented XEP-0071? Please note that the protocol
must be implemented in at least two separate codebases (and preferably
more) in order to advance from Draft to Final.

2. Have developers experienced any problems with the protocol as defined
in XEP-0071? If so, please describe the problems and, if possible,
suggested solutions.

3. Is the text of XEP-0071 clear and unambiguous? Are more examples
needed? Is the conformance language (MAY/SHOULD/MUST) appropriate? Have
developers found the text confusing at all? Please describe any
suggestions you have for improving the text.

If you have any comments about advancing XEP-0071 from Draft to Final,
please provide them by the close of business on Friday, August 31, 2012.
After the Call for Experience, this XEP might undergo revisions to
address feedback received, after which it will be presented to the XMPP
Council for voting to a status of Final.

Please send all feedback to the standards at xmpp.org discussion list.
