Hi all,

In light of yet another comment-less expiry of a Last Call for XEP-0280, we 
came to the conclusion that we need focused work on Message Routing rules.

While I won’t participate directly, I’m going to organize this sprint so that 
the participants can concentrate on the actual standards and implementation 
work. The idea of a sprint came in light of the great success which is the new 
OMEMO version, and we hope to be able to accumulate a similar success in the 
context of message routing.

The goal of the sprint is to work out corner cases of routing of message 
stanzas of all types in the presence of multiple different devices/resources 
on a single account, maybe not all of them online at the same time. I.e. the 
roles of XEP-0280, the rules in XEP-0313 and of course XEP-0409.

Due to the state of the world, the sprint shall take place remotely. The 
remote platform will probably be one or another Jitsi Meet instance [1].

Please reply to this message on-list or privately to me if you are interested 
in participating within a week. Next week around this time, we’ll start 
agreeing on a timeslot and work out the meeting details.

If you cannot or do not want to participate, but still know of important and/
or easily overlooked routing cases which should be taken into consideration, 
feel free to reply with that information to this message on the list.

kind regards,

   [1]: Unfortunately, Jitsi Meet has multiple accessibility issues. One is
        the fact that it still won’t work reliably with non-Chromium browsers.
        The other is hearsay I got from visually impaired people that the UI
        is not usable for them. Also unfortunately, I don’t know of another
        platform we could use without sponsorship. If you have suggestions for
        a more accessible alternative or want to participate in the sprint and
        would be hindered by the use of Jitsi Meet, please contact me 
        privately and, if you wish, GPG encrypted for your privacy.

        Please keep the discussion about the meeting platform off-list though,
        it is not on-topic for standards at .
