I should put in a TLS cert on my server, for one thing. I think we have a
good selection of the right people together for a productive discussion on
this one, and I think we can probably both do a lot of work on
-saintandre-xmpp-tls, and possibly knock out a XEP on post-prismatic
security, as well as potentially an xmpp.org blog post.

I'm happy to talk about that, but I have to say I think we're not lacking
protocol here, but code. I should, though, resurrect XEP-0286 and include
things like Carbons and so on. I'm happy (read: delighted) to work on
updating that in the meeting, which might well be a productive way to
tackle this area.

If we have the right people present, yes.

I'm not sure what we could deliver from this, though.

We had a lengthy chat about this last time in Portland. I'm not sure
anything came out of it in terms of protocol, though clearly both
stanza.ioand xmpp-ftw have come on a long way. It'd be nice to catch
up, of course.

Yes, please.
