Scribe: Peter Saint-Andre

0. Roll call

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

Absent: Jack Moffitt.

Quorum achieved.

1. Agenda bashing

None.

2. Use of ZRTP in Jingle RTP Sessions

Accept for publication?

No objections.

3. XEP-0047: In-Band Bytestreams (IBB)

Approve version 1.2?

Consensus to vote on this next week to allow more time for review.

4. XMPP BOF / WG

The Council discussed which topics might be appropriate for an XMPP WG
at the IETF (if approved). Rough consensus on the following:

a. rfc3920bis, including work on stringprep and internationalized domain
names

b. rfc3921bis, probably including:
   - roster versioning (XEP-0237)
   - roster "views" (selective get by roster group -- I still need
     to write up a proposal about this)

c. server dialback

d. end-to-end encryption and certificate management, that is:

http://xmpp.org/internet-drafts/draft-meyer-xmpp-e2e-encryption-00.html

http://xmpp.org/internet-drafts/draft-meyer-xmpp-sasl-cert-management-00.html

(those are not yet submitted)

That list does not include an Internet-Draft version of XEP-0198. The
relevant criterion is that the selected topics can benefit from IETF
review, especially security review, whereas the stream management and
stanza acknowledgements work is at the core streaming level but can
benefit more from the XMPP expertise at the XSF and less from the
general Internet expertise at the IETF.

That list also does not include work on SIP-XMPP interworking, because
it wasn't clear to the Council whether that is best structured in an
XMPP WG, in a separate WG, or as individual submissions as currently
being pursued (the draft-saintandre-sip-xmpp-* series). The Council
defers to the IETF on this matter.

Also not on that list is BOSH (XEP-0124 + XEP-0206) because that topic
will primarily be discussed in the AppArea meeting, not the XMPP BOF.
The Council will probably discuss this matter further after IETF 74
(e.g., possible technical contributions if the IETF decides to pursue
work on bidirectional data streaming over HTTP).

5. GSoC

Reluctant consensus not to participate in GSoC 2009 because it is the
sense of the Council that right now there are not enough active
open-source projects that could provide good mentoring opportunities for
students.

6. Any other business?

None.

7. Next meeting.

Wednesday, March 4 @ 20:00 UTC, see http://xmpp.org/xsf/XSF.ics
