The XEP Editor would like to Call for Experience with XEP-0066 before
presenting it to the Council for advancing it to Final status.

During the Call for Experience, please answer the following questions:

1. What software has XEP-0066 implemented? 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.

2. Have developers experienced any problems with the protocol as
defined in XEP-0066? If so, please describe the problems and, if
possible, suggested solutions.

3. Is the text of XEP-0066 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-0066 from Draft to Final,
please provide them by the close of business on 2020-03-10. 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.
