[Standards] Proposed XMPP Extension: User Time Zone

Hello Spencer.

Isn't time zone already defined in XEP-0082?

That is, if specifying a timestamp, XEP-0082 requires a Time Zone definition according to the DateTime profile.

Best regards,
Peter Waher

Although I agree that this should be an XEP in its own right, the user's timezone is often tied to their location so would it also be useful to add a timezone element to XEP-0080: User Location as well?

The XMPP Extensions Editor has received a proposal for a new XEP.

Title: User Time Zone

Abstract: This specification defines a payload format for communicating information about a user's time zone. The payload format is typically transported using the personal eventing protocol, a profile of XMPP publish-subscribe specified in XEP-0163.

The XMPP Council will decide in the next two weeks whether to accept this proposal as an official XEP.
