## Roll call
- Tobias (chairing)
- Sam Whited
- Dave Cridland
Daniel and Link Mauve sent their apologies.
## Move XEP-0153: vCard-Based Avatars to "Obsolete"
- Tobias -1
- SamWhited +1
- Dave Cridland -1
Others to vote on list if they want too.
## Specify an encoding in XEP-0300
Current proposal is to specify an encoding and bump Jingle File Transfer and
Hashes namespace version.
After some discussion on whether a Jingle FT version bump was required, it was

## Move 2016 Compliance Suites to LC
- Tobias notes that it probably makes sense just to start new ones for 2017 at
- Sam to start a list discussion on 2017 suites.
- Sam suggests deprecating the 2010 ones (or whatever the currently "accepted"

- SamWhited +1
- Dave Cridland +1
- Tobias +1
Others on list.

If you see anything that needs to be advanced instead, please reach out to the

maybe it's worth advancing.
- Tobias, Dev, and Dave question the assumption that it's widely used.
- Dave notes that this is what LC is for, if it's good enough to implement, and
seems to be working, it should be LCed and people will respond if there are
issues with it.
- Dave also notes that "widespread use" might matter for Draft->Final but not
## Consider advancing XEP-0233: XMPP Server Registration for use with
- Dave Cridland notes that Mili should probably be an author because she wrote
a great deal of that one and that he's happy to LC it as well
- Tobias also is happy to LC this one
## Date of next
## Any Other Business
