Hello everyone!

During the 36C3 a bunch of people finalized the idea to form a SIG
dedicated to end-to-end encryption. The desired outcome of the SIG would
be to facilitate development on E2EE related technology within the XSF.

Concrete goals include, but are not limited to:

* Work on specifying new E2EE mechanisms
* Improving the current state of the OMEMO specification
* Improving Stanza Content Encryption and incorporating it into existing
E2EE mechanisms in a unified way
* Creating an informational document covering hurdles that implementers
might stumble across when incorporating E2EE in their application
* Provide a point of contact between developers of E2EE and the XMPP

More details are listed in the merge request in the xeps repository:

Happy Hacking
