Hi everyone,

Last week, the XMPP Council 2020/2021 had its constitutive session. I am happy 
to be able to continue another year to work for you together with Dave, Zash, 
Georg and Daniel. Aside from me being reelected as chair, it was decided that 
the meeting time slot shall stay the same as before. Hence...

The second XMPP Council Meeting of this term will take place on 2020-12-02 at 
16:00Z in xmpp:council at muc.xmpp.org?join. Everyone is welcome to join and add 
to the discussions.

This time slot will stay the same until the DST switch in Europe.

This agenda is composed from:

- Editor notifications to standards@
- xsf/xeps GitHub PRs marked as Needs Council
- xsf/xeps GitLab MRs marked as Needs Council
- Suggestions directly sent to me (see below)

Agenda as follows:

1) Roll Call

2) Agenda Bashing

* Feel free to pre-bash on-list or directly to me if you think something is 

3) Editor’s Update

* New ProtoXEP: Automatic Trust Management

4) Items for voting

4a) PR#1014: XEP-0176: Improve compatibility with WebRTC clients
URL: https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1014

4b) PR#1008: XEP-0047: fix incorrect max sequence number
URL: https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1008
Abstract: Previously the text said that the max sequence number was 65535 (max
unsigned 16 bit integer), but also said this was (1<<15)-1, which is
actually max signed 16 bit integer or 32767.

4c) PR#1001: XEP-0393: clarify rules for span directives
URL: https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1001
I think Dave missed the deadline last term. If I just overlooked the vote, 
please let me know.

4d) Proposed XMPP Extension: Automatic Trust Management
URL: https://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/automatic-trust-management.html
Abstract: This document specifies a way to automatically manage the trust in 
public long-term keys used by end-to-end encryption protocols.

[NB: The link will only start working in a few minutes, the Editor is still 
working on getting it published.]

5) Pending Votes

None \o/

6) Date of Next

7) AOB

8) Close

End of Agenda.

Note that I am aiming for 30 minutes, but meetings may be extended as 
necessary if all council members agree.

Meetings are normally held every Wednesday at 16:00 UTC in the
xmpp:council at muc.xmpp.org?join chatroom.
Meetings are open, and anyone (XSF Member or not) may attend, though only XMPP 
Council members may vote. Relevant comments from the floor are welcomed.

Using your web browser, you can join anonymously via

If you have suggestions for an agenda item, you can message me via XMPP or 
email at this address or at jonas at zombofant.net.

I aim to publish the Agenda on the day before the Council meeting before 

Thanks everyone,
