@snikket_im nice!

Somewhat tangent question, is there any talk about creating some sort of XMPP certification scheme that would certify XMPP clients and servers as implementing a certain well-chosen set of XEPs?

As you correctly note on your Goals page, fragmentation of that ecosystem is a serious problem, and that goes all the way down to protocol level.

I think it would make a lot of sense to have some kind of a common baseline like that.

@rysiek This is the goal of the XMPP compliance suites, published annually by the XSF: xmpp.org/about/compliance-suit

That covers the protocol layer. @mattj started docs.modernxmpp.org/ to also fill the need for UI/UX consistency across the ecosystem.

Snikket was born out of the work on the Modern XMPP project. The realization being that you can publish all the documents you want, but someone needs to ensure that these recommendations get implemented. So here we are 🙂
