Modern Email BoF, creating email-compat-data & more

This BoF is for modern email developers/enthousiasts to meet each other and have discussions on email protocols/implementations. Join to say hi, and optionally bring ideas/topics to discuss.

Here's already one idea to discuss: The creation of "email-compat-data" (somewhat like browser-compat-data): asupport matrix of email protocol features vs clients and servers. "Email" consists of many protocols and extensions. The many clients and servers need to interoperate with each other. A database of implementations and supported features will make testing easier. A little coordination between clients and servers, to reach critical mass, can be helpful at times as well.
