  12. Jef Kev
  13. Jef I did understand your email
  14. Jef what do you mean by AOL>
  15. Jef ?
  16. Kev "Me too"
  17. Jef oh
  18. Jef I went to urban dictionary and it says: Ass on lips
  19. Jef or something like that
  20. Jef Kev, I think the forwarding mechanism should be clear enough so that other protocols won't have their own version of what the forwarding mechanism should do
  21. Kev I'm not sure what you mean.
  22. Jef forwarding messages is easy, forwarding IQ is not intuitive
  23. Kev I still don't follow.
  24. Kev Forwarding an IQ is no harder than forwarding a message.
  25. Jef maybe it is a forged stanza, maybe IQ is false
  26. Jef in that case we want to tell the other person that we are answering a forward IQ
  27. Kev You can't answer a forwarded IQ.
  28. Jef so that if he says that he don't know what we are talking about
  29. Jef yea, you are right I used the wrong words
  30. Jef when we reply to the requested information to the original sender
  31. Kev You mean that A sends B an iq, B forwards to C and C replies to A?
  32. Jef yes
  33. Kev Right, you can't do that.
  34. Jef why?
  35. Jef so does it has to go through B to get to A
  36. Kev iqs are full jid to full jid
  37. Kev If you reply with a different full JID it's not going to work.
  38. Jef ha
  39. Jef so does it has to go through B to get to A
  40. Kev It depends what you're trying to do.
  41. Jef just answer the requested information in the IQ
  42. Jef B doesn't have that information so it asks C
  43. Kev But why do you want forwarding to do that.
  44. Jef because A doesn't know C
  45. Jef B doesn't have that information so it asks C
  46. Kev Right.
  47. Kev You don't need forwarding for B to ask C.
  48. Jef hmm...
  49. Jef yea thats right
  50. Kev There may be rare situations in which forwarding an iq might make sense, but none come immediately to mind and there's no sensible way to address imaginary requirements in any sensible manner.
  51. Kev If there's a new protocol that needs iq forwarding, it will need to explain what the semantics are.
  52. Kev Just like any protocol forwarding messages will need to explain what the semantics are.
  53. Jef yep, thanks that's much clear now
