1) Roll Call

Present: Jonas, Zash, Georg, Daniel, Dave

2) Agenda Bashing


3) Editor’s Update

- Last call for XEP-0459 ended

4) Items for Voting

4a) Decide on Advancement of XEP-0459
Title: XMPP Compliance Suites 2022
Abstract: This document defines XMPP application categories for different use 
cases (Core, Web, IM, and Mobile), and specifies the required XEPs that client 
and server software needs to implement for compliance with the use cases. 

Most of council hadn't reviewed the XEP themselves yet, so everyone is on-
list. Daniel would be ready to vote +1.

4b) PR#1105: XEP-0280: feedback from Last Calls
Something about things Georg did.
URL: https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1105

There is some questioning whether we even need to vote on this (no) and why it 
was brought up (Ge0rG wants to have a council-ack to not impede an advancement 
of '280).

The question why there was stripping of <private/> in the first place (nobody 
remembers). Removing it is considered harmful, so the change is generally 

General agreement.

4c) XEP-0313 advancement

There has been some discussion on-list and Zashes proposal seems to be the 
most favoured one. Zash is asked kindly to prepare a PR putting it to words 
until the next meeting.

5) Date of Next

Everyone in for +1w.

6) AOB

6a) End-of-term preps

Dave points out that the council term ends at 2021-11-25 and raises three 

- We should plan the remainder of our workloads

  We mostly did that by wrapping up '280 and '313 and push the CS ('459) as 
  far as possible.

- Everyone should figure out if they'll stand again

  Jonas remarks that he might not be up for chairing, though he'd be glad to 
  re-run for Council.

- Everyone should try to recruit interested people

  If someone reading this list has thought "Ugh, damn council! Spoiling all 
  the fun" in the past year, then now is a good opportunity to put in your
  own application for council, to improve the situation. For more details see


7) Ite Meeting Est
