G'day,

nice to see the website being updated.

As I mentionned on the xsf@ room, Jappix (http://jappix.org) and 
Libervia/Salut à Toi (http://salut-a-toi.org on which I am working) are 
lacking in "Projects using XMPP Social". I have not heard of any other one.

Also about the Fosdem summit: last year it was proposed that we could 
have a hacking day dedicated to end to end encryption. I think this 
would be great as I'm not convinced with the OTR or OMEMO solutions. I 
think we need a way to encrypt whole stanzas, and a jingle transport 
using it. Anyway a dedicated day to work on this old issue would be nice 
before the Fosdem.

Cheers
Goffi
