Results of the XMPP Council meeting held 2008-01-09...

Present: Dave Cridland, Ralph Meijer, Peter Saint-Andre, Kevin Smith.

Absent: Ian Paterson (with notice).

Quorum achieved.

1. Agenda bashing


2. Next meeting.

To be scheduled on the Council list. January 16 a possibility.

3. - 9. Jingle specs.

Consensus that we will seek feedback for several more weeks before 
voting on advancement.

Discussion about particular specs...

3. XEP-0166: Jingle

Dave Cridland and Robert McQueen noted that content-modify is 
underspecified for transport-method changes. Peter to clarify.

8. XEP-0181: Jingle DTMF

Ralph questioned whether there is demand for this yet or whether we can 
advance it after the other specs. Robert McQueen noted that his team has 
implemented this in code. No strong consensus on timing of a vote, but 
also no objections to a delay.

9. XEP-0208: Bootstrapping Implementation of Jingle

Ralph questioned whether anyone has used this while working on their 
implementations and if so whether it was useful. Peter noted that he has 
received no feedback either way, but that it probably has not been used, 
in which case we should advance it later (if at all).

All Council members in attendance voted +1. Ian to vote on the list.

Approve version 1.5pre12?

Long discussion about three issues:

14. ProtoXEP: Data Element

Accept version 0.0.3 as a XEP?
