1) Roll Call and Sandwich Orders
Present: Kev, Sam, Daniel
Stuck in endless meetings: Dave
Deep under-cover behind enemy lines: Georg

2) Isn't it nice that Tedd Sterr does the agenda?
[It's a dirty job, but somebody should do it.]

3) Advance XEP-0363: HTTP File Upload
Kev: [on-list] (without the agenda in advance, failed to look at this again)
Sam: [on-list] (still nervous about the http headers stuff being too restrictive)
Daniel: +1
Dave: [pending]
Georg: [pending]

4) Deprecate XEP-0229: Stream Compression with LZW (and XEP-0138: Stream Compression)
Kev doesn't know why this appeared on the agenda - Daniel thinks it was voted on 6 months ago - Kev agrees that it did come up before.
Daniel thinks it's probably due to perceived insecurity; Kev sees that there was a vote in April not to advance it.

Sam: +0
Kev: -0
Daniel: -0
Dave: [pending]
Gerg: [pending]

Daniel thinks compression is generally nice to have, and maybe this could be made secure with proper business rules.
Sam agrees that compression is nice to have, but isn't against getting rid of it.
Kev says that some sort of compression is desirable, as XMPP is heavily compressible and sometimes used on poor links.
Daniel thinks this issue should be revisited soon. Kev agrees - it could be Stream Compression, or EXI (XEP-0322), or something else - but deprecating isn't the Right Thing™ at the moment; Sam agrees.

5) Outsanding Votes et les Vol-au-vents
[Georg had two -- now done: https://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/standards/2018-June/035191.html]

6) Next Meeting, Next Meal
2018-06-27 1500 UTC

7) Bier und AOB
Nobody shouts imminently.

8) Close and Take Your Rubbish Home with You
Thanks all; show's over!
