The charter of the team is as follows:

Since 2001, the XMPP Extensions Editor has managed numerous details of the XSF’s Standards Process (see [1] and [2]) and has also functioned as the responsible party for the XMPP Registrar (see [3] and [4]). In order to manage these processes in a sustainable way, this charter defines an XSF Work Team with the following goals:

  1. Refine and continually improve team work processes for management of the XEP Editor and XMPP Registrar functions, consistent with XEP-0001 and XEP-0053.
  1. Put those processes into practice by efficiently dispatching the responsibilities of the XEP Editor and XMPP Registrar functions.

Collectively, the members of the work team are expected to have familiarity with the use of source control systems, the XML formats used for both XEPs and XSF registries, basic build and release processes, and mailing list administration. Members of the team are also expected to work with appropriate attention to detail and awareness of information security, to coordinate amongst themselves regarding the rapid and transparent handling of their tasks, and to treat XEP authors and information registrants with honesty and respect.

Members of the work team shall be selected by the XMPP Council after a call for volunteers from among the XSF membership, and shall be approved by the XSF Board of Directors.
