<section1 topic='Introduction' anchor='intro'>
<p>
The &XSF; defines protocol suites for the purpose of compliance testing
and software certification.
This document specifies compliance levels for XMPP clients and servers; it
is hoped that this document will advance the state of the art, and provide
guidance and eventual certification to XMPP client and server authors.
Unless explicitly noted, support for the listed specifications is REQUIRED
for compliance purposes.
A feature is considered supported if all comma separated feature providers
listed in the "Providers" column are implemented (unless otherwise noted).
