Ralph mentions"
In short the discussion is about whether or not XEP-384 can move ahead in
our process, as in its current state implementing it depends on libsignal.

One of the things raised yesterday, is that the XSF might be liable for
incorporating the signal protocol, if it is determined that the way we got
to the protocol description is deemed a derivative of libsignal.

The above concerns me, as Board runs the XSF, and me personally as part of
(and only member of) the Executive Committee.

I wanted to make note of this, and why I am arguing against any action that
might cause this to be the case.
A lenghty discussion without conclusion followed (see chat logs for details)

Conclusions were that Ralph would approach Matthew (Matrix) at FOSDEM and
discuss their experience when working on Olm, and efforts would be made to
contact OWS and explicitly ask about the status and permissions.
