> Abstract: This document defines XMPP protocol for multi-user chat for text

> includes core chatroom features such as room topics and invitations and
> defines a strong room control model, including the ability to kick and ban

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