testing event on July 24 and 25, 2006 in Portland, Oregon, USA. This is the same week as O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON). Details follow. Please note that this page is subject to change as further information becomes available.
=== Purpose ===
The purpose of this event is to test interoperability between multiple
implementations of the XMPP RFCs (3920 and 3921). All participants will
be expected to file implementation reports (in accordance with a format
and template yet to be developed), which will form one input to the
process of advancing the XMPP specifications from Proposed Standard to
Draft Standard within the Internet Standards Process at the IETF (see
RFC 2026). The other expected outcome will be a consensus set of
proposed modifications and clarifications to the XMPP RFCs for
discussion on the mailing list of the XMPP WG after the event concludes
(see http://www.xmpp.org/xmppbis.html for provisional examples).
=== Focus ===
The main focus of this event will be server testing. Testing of clients
that are in or near full compliance with the XMPP RFCs will also occur
(XMPP is a client-server technology, so we need both), but given the
large number of Jabber/XMPP clients it will not be feasible to test very
many clients. A set of test cases will be published several months in
advance for use by the participants. The test cases will focus only on
protocol compliance, not scalability, reliability, ease of use, or other
such factors.
This will be a small, developer-only event. No customers, no marketing
people, no guano. All bugs will stay in the room.
This is not a more general developer conference. While the JSF may hold
such conferences in the future, this is a small, focused, interop
testing event. However, participants are encouraged to attend OSCON
(same week, same city) and to get involved in Jabber-related activities
=== Logistics ===
The JSF will charge $200 per person in order to cover costs associated with hosting of the event. This fee will be waived for open-source developers. Please make payment via PayPal to the address "paypal@jabber.org" or by check to JSF P.O. Box 1641 Denver CO 80201 USA. You may also pay in person at the event.
Although originally we thought space might be limited because of the venue, that is no longer the case. Multiple participants from participating companies are welcome.
If you are interested in participating in this event, please contact Peter Saint-Andre directly via IM, email, or phone using the addresses
listed at http://www.jabber.org/people/stpeter.shtml
