3. What are this council's priorities for http://xmpp.org/xsf/roadmap.shtml ?

It is decided that items 1 and 2 on the roadmap are now
responsibilities of the IETF Working Group, but it is still the
Council's responsibility to advise. Kevin Smith suggest combining this
to just be item #1.
The Council agrees to include "MUC Cleanup" as item #2.
The roadmap now stands as:

1. Advise the IETF WG on RFC bis revisions and e2e.
2. Clean up MUC (XEP-0045).
3. Improve XMPP file transfer by transitioning to Jingle (see
XEP-0234) with SOCKS5 bytestreams (XEP-0260) and in-band bytestreams
4. Improve the resistance of XMPP to spam, phishing, abuse, and denial
of service attacks, with a current focus on XEP-0268: Incident

4. ProtoXEP Linked Process Protocol - http://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/lop.html.

A consensus is reached to wait for the next revision of the spec,
which is apparently in the works, before voting.

* XEP-0226: Message Stanza Profiles
* XEP-0253: PubSub Chaining

There is some concern about requiring separate files and the lack of
last activity.
All three councilmen vote in favor of issuing a last call.

7. Any other business.

Kevin Smith bangs the gavel.
