Here you can submit news items for inclusion in the next XMPP Newsletter (as managed by the CommTeam).


To contributors, editors, reviewers, translators

Live discussion

xmpp:commteam@muc.xmpp.org?join

What determines relevancy?

The submission must ideally be a blog or article about XMPP/Jabber and/or XMPP-based software (clients, servers, libs).

Some exceptions might be made, for example for a release page showing a new release of some XMPP-based software.

However, marketing brochures (e.g. single-page marketing sites) for new products which don't contain information on XMPP, won't be included.

Make sure you read the Basic communication guide for XMPP techies
