Starting to get started…

The group now has a number of participants from across a spectrum of stakeholders – client, server and webmail developers, people who produce HTML mail, and people who read it. Many have introduced themselves on the mailing list, and I hope others will continue to do so.

More importantly, we have a wiki where we can work. And a GitHub account, where there are a couple of draft compatibility tables that I hope we will expand and make far more useful.

What we are sorely missing is tests. There is the existing acid test from the email-standards project, but while it is interesting it is hard to go from there to a useful compatibility table.

It would be nice to have a testing system too, where we could produce tests and let people send them and record results…

…and of course World Peace and a Pony.
