Apparently there is an #XMPPIoT protocol?

Also: There's an XMPP newsletter yay! (that's the first issue)

I had a look at http://www.xmpp-iot.org/ and it's not immediately clear whether there is an actual slimmed-down version of XMPP, or if it's just an information resource for people wanting to use XMPP in IoT.
@psjbeisler Thanks!

Doesn't seem like the right thing to be promoting.

@clacke oops, didnt catch that before, been trying to figure this xmpp-iothings out for a while too and cant seem to find a good answer... latest thought has been to make xmpp into a ROS node. 🤖 wiki.ros.org/Nodes
