[sending on behalf of the XSF's Editor Team]

At its meeting on October 21, 2015, the XMPP Council agreed to issue a
"Call for Experience" regarding XEP-0301 (In-Band Real Time Text), 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-0301? Please note that the protocol
must be implemented in at least two separate codebases (at least one of 
which must be free or open-source software) in order to advance from 
Draft to Final. [1]

2. Have developers experienced any problems with the protocol as defined
in XEP-0301? If so, please describe the problems and, if possible,
suggested solutions.

3. Is the text of XEP-0301 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-0301 from Draft to Final,
please provide them by the close of business on Friday, November 6, 
2015. 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.
