That's where we always end up. :-)
This document was intended to help and might provide a good starting point:
Last night I was chatting with Ralph Meijer about e2e encryption, and I
suggested that we need to make a plan. IMHO we won't make significant
progress until we have a critical mass of client developers on board. So
I think we might want to:
1. Get those developers to show up at FOSDEM 2016 and pay for them to be
there if necessary.
2. Work *hard* on coming to a rough agreement between now and then.
3. Spend FOSDEM / Summit writing code, testing, and hashing out
