As you might know from discussions in the XMPP WG or at the XMPP
Summit over the last few years, we've been working to update the
handling of non-ASCII characters in JIDs by migrating from Stringprep
to PRECIS. This is a big effort, but it is now pretty mature and
sometime soon the XMPP WG will hold a "working group last call" for
comments on draft-ietf-xmpp-6122bis. However, before then the PRECIS
WG will hold a WGLC on draft-ietf-precis-nickname, which we might
re-use in Multi-User Chat (XEP-0045). The nickname spec is quite short
(only 7 pages including boilerplate) and it provides a good way for
Jabberites to become familiar with this internationalization work.

I would very much appreciate reviews of the nickname spec (and 6122bis
and the PRECIS framework) from developers in the XMPP community.
Certainly I think this is something that all XMPP Council members will
want to look at, but if your client, server, or library code supports
internationalized JIDs then you might want to compare the new
PRECIS-based approach against the old Stringprep-based approach.
However, if I don't receive enough reviews then I'll start poking
people individually. ;-)

Here are the relevant links:

https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-precis-nickname/
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-xmpp-6122bis/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-precis-framework/

Please provide feedback about the draft-ietf-precis-* documents on the
precis at ietf.org list and feedback about draft-ietf-xmpp-6122bis on the
xmpp at ietf.org list:

https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/precis
https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/xmpp

Alternatively, feel free to send me feedback directly via email or IM.

Finally, for background information, here is the tutorial I presented
at the XMPP Summit a few years ago:

Thanks!
