Hi All,

I realised the subject was not in the correct format for the email I sent
in the morning. Please ignore that email.

I am a newbie software developer who recently started looking into XMPP
XEP's. In Band registration was something that caught my eye, as the XEP
itself said that it is utterly insecure and recommended people not to use

I had some questions I wanted to clarify:
1.) Is there anything else people can use in XMPP to bootstrap users
quickly, apart from in-band registration?

2.) If in-band registration is so insecure, and (from the looks of it) so
important (atleast a really good feature to have) why are there no
alternative work flows people can use?

3.) If there is no simple alternative to In Band Registration, I can
probable try to create an XEP for an alternative protocol, or maybe suggest
some changes to the existing work flow. Can someone describe to me
concisely how to go about suggesting changes to an existing XEP/ writing an
Internet Draft?
