Note that I am aiming for 30 minutes, but meetings may be extended as 
necessary if all council members agree.

Meetings are normally held every Wednesday at 15:00 UTC in the
xmpp:council at muc.xmpp.org?join chatroom.
Meetings are open, and anyone (XSF Member or not) may attend, though only XMPP 
Council members may vote. Relevant comments from the floor are welcomed.

Using your web browser, you can join anonymously via

Note that conversations in the room are logged publicly at

If you have suggestions for an agenda item, you can message me via XMPP or 
email at this address or at jonas at zombofant.net.

I aim to publish the Agenda on the day before the Council meeting before 
19:00Z (that didn’t work out this time).

Thanks everyone,
