Sounds like fun, and it fits in with the XMPP+Web theme.

I like that. I'm still working on arranging dinner, so I'm not 100%
sure whether it will happen on Wednesday night or Thursday night. Are
there krtconf-related events on Wednesday night?

Oh, I'm sure Matthew would like to do some Lua hacking, too. ;-)

'Twould be super.

Someone also suggested WebRTC as a topic of interest, unfortunately I
haven't had the cycles to track that as closely as I need to. That
relates to both Jingle and the Web. (And I've been thinking more about
multi-user Jingle of late...)

And of course there are also other topics of perennial interest, like
security, federation, distributed MUC (perhaps Dave Cridland could
give us an update on that), etc.
