1) Roll call
Kev, Lance, Dave, Matt present. Fippo arrives later

2) Agenda planning in Trello
Kev proposes using Trello for Agenda planning, with a board prepared at https://trello.com/b/ww7zWMlI/xmpp-council-agenda, and all agree. Kev asks for Council to let him know their Trello accounts so he can add them to the board.

3) Picking a chair
(Fippo enters here)
Kev volunteers to chair Council again this term, everyone agrees.

4) Meeting Minutes/Scribes
Dave suggests having a scribe outside Council. Kev to keep minuting until a scribe is found, and to mail standards@ and members@ asking for a volunteer (done).

5) Bios for the website
Kev asks everyone to check their Bio on the website and either to update it or send a fresh one to Kev if it’s absent/outdated

6) Council Responsibilities
Kev suggests (following Board engagement<>membership suggestions) that Council should poll the membership to see what they expect of Council beyond the obvious XEP review and advancement.
General agreement to come up with a set of questions to ask the XSF Members, to be circulated on the Council list before sending out. Dave notes that he feels the need for some activities are self-evident and little value is gained from asking Members for their opinions.

Dave asks for the venue of Council meetings to be discussed in the next meeting
