Well..discussions held in those SIGs could also take place in standards MLs.
Actually I personally don't miss SIGs. If there's interest in a topic it's
discussed on the standards ML and the council member usually take part
there. XEPs which are openly discussed there are easier to handle for the
council because more people looked at it and expressed their concerns and
ideas. However the council also has to check and proof the not that
interesting XEPs. Not interesting for a lot people so it's barely discussed
on the MLs i mean.
So in general the advice would be if you're in the XSF as a member you have
a chance to even reinforce your support for the XSF by either taking part in
technical discussion or if that's not that interesting help the XSF with one
of the other tasks the XSF needs the have done and according to Peter's post
that are quite a lot.
