*sigh* I have not enough time right now to work on specifications :(
But here some comments on stuff I'm involved in somehow.

Yes, the important stuff is part of the XTLS ID

Good question. There is an expired ID in this area I want to update if I
find some free time for it. So should I continue to update the ID even
though the XMPP WG does not have this topic on its agenda or should I
drop the ID and merge the changes back to the XEP? Right now the ID is
more up--to-date than the XEP.

Again, I hope to get some time to work on specs the next days. On my
list is an XTLS ID update, SASL EXTERNAL, improve XEP-0265, and some
comments and adjustments to Peter's latest XEP-0189 changes.


I have yet to meet a C compiler that is more friendly and easier to use
than eating soup with a knife.
