Adam great that you put XMPP +IoT on the agenda, I will gladly help out
I have just started http://xmpp-iot.github.io a github site to ease the
introduction of "xmpp internet of things" making it possible to fork and
help in updating. Also with a "manifest" for backers.

> *Active website *
> - Active and strategically opinionated blog—dismantle myths, responses

> bespoke protocols or building YAMS (yet another messaging silo)
> - Link to and feature howtos and new XMPP projects on the XSF site and
> - "Position paper" style pages on various topics (optimization,
> performance, federation, s2s, mobile), with relevant blog posts and howtos
> - Publicly summarizing the Council's agenda
> - XMPP +IoT, XMPP + WebRTC sections
> - Use GitHub to empower the XSF and extended XMPP community to
> collaborate on the site — Allow submission of new/revised content and blog
> posts via pull request
> *Proactively build the community*
> - There are 2600 repositories on GitHub containing "XMPP"(
> https://github.com/search?q=xmpp&type=Repositories) Who are these
> people and how many of them are connected to the XSF?
> - Invite people to idle in an easily accessible channel (IRC + Web +
> - Feature, publicize, and praise new XMPP based projects
> - Seek to grow the active XSF membership, particularly those working
> in growing areas of tech intersecting with XMPP (IoT, WebRTC, indie tech)
> - Encourage and feature meetups and relevant conferences
> - Encourage members to attend technical conferences and submit talks
> supportive of the XSF's strategic agenda
> *Invite and listen to criticism of XMPP*
> - Listen, and work to address it where the Council agrees we should
> - Answer misconceptions with position pages and education
> - Help council prioritize work based on this feedback
> I would love to hear feedback and criticism from XSF members on all of the
> above. Do you agree? Disagree? Does anything stand out to you as blatantly
> ignorant or wrong or naively overambitious? Let me have it! :)
> Thanks so much.
