Present: Ralph Meijer, Arc Riley, Martin Hewitt, Nicolas Vérité

1. Agenda Bashing

Ralph asked for agenda items. Nÿco suggested Discourse and Board
priorities, and Ralph suggested IEEE.


Ralph noted that we've received a message from William Miller on IEEE
IoT efforts and their desire to incorporate our IoT specs in more of
their work. Arc noted that the XEPs referred to are expired and

Ralph proposed requesting Council provide guidance on how to proceed,
and possibly appoint a liaison to the IEEE for this work. Arc seconded
the motion, and noted that William Miller is apparently based in
Washington DC, so he could easily meet in person.

Sam Whited commented that, with his Council hat on, he thinks this is
a matter for the IoT SIG to decide, most particularly if the current
XEPs are to be worked on or if new XEPs should be written - but noted
that either way the state should be communicated to people.

Dave Cridland suggested the Council is the right body to decide on
these things, with advice and input from the SIG. Ralph noted that he
did request that the SIG's leadership be a Council person.

Sam added the IoT discussion to the Council agenda.

Ralph asked who could provide a more immediate response, and it was
suggested that Arc's offer to meet could form this response. Arc
suggested that he would encourage William Miller, and through him,
others, to join the XSF and participate within it.
