Minutes for the Council meeting 2011-11-09.
1) Roll call.
Kev, Matt, Matt and Ralph present.
2) Account Management
Accept as XEP?
Unanimous agreement that this shouldn't be accepted as a XEP at the
moment, with Kev to write to the standards list giving reasons. Some
reasons were not considered reason to block alone, but were in
aggregate. A summary:
*) The community was asked by Council if they thought this was
appropriate, and there was significant objection.
*) This introduces a new security model (account creation without
providing the server with complete credentials) that the XSF doesn't
have the experience to successfully analyse or comment on. The IETF
possesses this knowledge and we could publish a XEP applying their
findings if they were to publish appropriate findings.
*) Using steam features for things that aren't stream features seems
like an abuse, and alternatives should be discussed (one was presented
during community discussion).
3) XEP-0258 (Security Labels)
Move to Draft?
4) Last Message Correction
No objection to publishing. Comments both from Council and the
community that it's not clear whether this applies to only the most
recent, or previous messages. Author (Kev) to clarify this once
Accept new version
Accept new version.
Agreement to leave this for the next Council.
Split out from XEP-0045 and accept as Experimental?

Accept as Experimental
Agreement to leave for next Council.
9) Thanks for the work put in this term.
10) Any other business.
