    T-3 minutes?

  46. Tobias

    meeting today?

  47. m&m


  48. stpeter

    I know Kev sent his regrets

  49. m&m

    there is one agenda item, I think

  50. Tobias

    the protoxep?

  51. m&m


  52. Kanchil

    m&m: http://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/jingle-sdp.html: XEP-xxxx: Jingle SDP Content

  53. Tobias

    the one that said we have to find technical arguments to decline it :P

  54. Dave Cridland

    Yes, Fippo's even more unhappy about how it turned out than he thought.

  55. stpeter

    it = ?

  56. Tobias

    is "SDP has cooties" technical enough?

  57. m&m

    I only glanced at it, but it is a little smelly

  58. stpeter

    Tobias: :-)

  59. m&m

    SDP has enough cooties, this really multiplies them

  60. m&m

    it looks like the pairing of the worst parts of two things

  61. m&m pings one of the MattJ's

  62. MattJ has joined

  63. Tobias

    i don't see ralph online

  64. m&m

    he's away

  65. Tobias


  66. m&m

    well, tis time

  67. m&m bangs gavel

  68. m&m

    0) Roll Call

  69. MattJ


  70. Tobias


  71. m&m


  72. m&m

    we at least have quorum

  73. m&m

    1) <http://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/jingle-sdp.html> Accept as Experimental?

  74. m&m

    I'm disinclined to accept this if the author doesn't want it

  75. stpeter

    the author doesn't want it? I missed that

  76. Tobias

    that was the tone of his last message

  77. m&m

    From Philipp Hancke: council: please reject this (with a technical argument, not just because it's ugly)

  78. MattJ

    We're supposed to reject it for technical reasons though :)

  79. Dave Cridland

    I think you should accept it.

  80. MattJ

    I was waiting for someone to say that

  81. Dave Cridland

    Think how annoyed he'd be.

  82. m&m

    then he can retract it

  83. m&m

    or not

  84. stpeter

    isn't the Jingle / RTC SIG supposed to be deciding what to do here?

  85. Dave Cridland

    Forgot this'd be in the logs, though. :-)

  86. MattJ

    I believed so

  87. m&m

    that was my understanding

  88. MattJ

    I'm not sure what the consensus is yet (author's opinion aside)

  89. Dave Cridland

    We've had virtually no list activity in a few weeks; I was hoping that people would have come back with the work they offered to do by now.

  90. m&m

    you have to prod

  91. Dave Cridland

    Yes, I know. But a combination of summer and IETF has meant I haven't.

  92. stpeter

    everyone is rivited by ongoing security scandals and has no energy for trivialities like RTC :P

  93. MattJ


  94. m&m

    best with something electrified

  95. Dave Cridland

    This submission is going to be my key to reinvigorating things, I hope.

  96. m&m

    then "no objections" from me

  97. m&m

    I don't have a good technical argument against it at this time

  98. m&m

    Tobias? MattJ?

  99. MattJ


  100. stpeter

    if we're going to publish Jingle-SDP, then IMHO we also need to publish SoX -- I'm not fond of either, but they're just about equally hideous

  101. MattJ

    don't object

  102. Dave Cridland

    I think the principle problem with the proposal is that the only thing it really adds is SDP syntax - it gains nothing in terms of interop.

  103. m&m

    stpeter: agreed

  104. MattJ

    Can we change the text for "experimental" back again? :)

  105. Dave Cridland

    SoX clearly does have some merit - in as much as it can be used to tunnel SIP though an XMPP network.

  106. m&m

    well, I've no problems publishing both

  107. Tobias

    m&m, if it doesn't provide any value why accept it? like dave says...it adds nothing in terms of interop

  108. MattJ

    Interop with whom?

  109. stpeter

    I didn't say Jingle-SDP has no merit, I just say it's ugly :-)

  110. MattJ

    Dave Cridland, will it help or hinder the Jingle SIG to have this accepted?

  111. Dave Cridland

    MattJ, Anyone. You can't use jingle-sdp except to talk to other jingle-sdp speakers, of course, but in order to use it you need to parse and understand SDP; you can't just blindly take an SDP (or SIP) blob and throw it across the network.

  112. Dave Cridland

    MattJ, I don't think it'll make any difference.

  113. Dave Cridland

    MattJ, The only complication would be if people treated it as anything more than a discussion point.

  114. MattJ

    So it won't make any difference, and we're not convinced it's a good approach to the problem, there are no existing implementations (right?)...

  115. MattJ

    and there is a risk of someone implementing it while experimental

  116. Dave Cridland

    MattJ, Right.

  117. m&m

    Dave Cridland: as the not-a-chair for the Jingle-SDP, is your opinion to publish or not?

  118. MattJ

    Especially since we just changed our text to encourage them to :)

  119. MattJ

    In which case I think I'd rather not publish

  120. Dave Cridland

    m&m, If we had a true equivalent of a published draft, I'd stick with that. As it is, having it in the protoxep record is sufficient for the SIG's need, and a real XEP may confuse the issue.

  121. m&m

    so, on the advice of the SIG, we can reject this proposal at this time

  122. Tobias

    +1 on that

  123. tato has joined

  124. m&m

    ok. I suppose Kev and Ralph have a fortnight to respond, but that might be moot

  125. m&m

    who wants to send the notice of non-acceptance to the list?

  126. MattJ

    I can

  127. m&m


  128. m&m

    2) Next Meeting

  129. stpeter


  130. Tobias


  131. m&m

    SBTSBC is assumed, unless anyone has apologies to note now

  132. MattJ


  133. m&m

    3) Any Other Business

  134. Tobias

    none here

  135. fippo has joined

  136. MattJ


  137. MattJ


  138. m&m

    going once

  139. m&m

    going twice

  140. stpeter


  141. Dave Cridland

    I'd note as a general item we need to hunt candidates for council and board.

  142. stpeter

    any input on LC items?

  143. m&m

    I'm working through −301

  144. stpeter

    Dave Cridland: agreed

  145. m&m

    I have a lot of nits

  146. Tobias

    stpeter, i'll look at the none RTT ones the next days

  147. m&m

    Dave Cridland: noted!

  148. stpeter

    recruiting for the Board is always a challenge

  149. m&m

    maybe if you offered actual cookies

  150. Dave Cridland

    Oh, and Summit...

  151. stpeter

    oh yes

  152. m&m


  153. Dave Cridland

    Apparently there'll be four people there.

  154. Dave Cridland

    I'm wondering whether to make it 5.

  155. Dave Cridland

    But that may mean finding a bigger table.

  156. stpeter

    Inky does XMPP? or you just want to visit Portland again? ;-)

  157. Dave Cridland

    Mostly just like Portland.

  158. Dave Cridland

    That is, Portland³.

  159. stpeter

    but yes some marketing is needed

  160. stpeter

    I'll do some more pokage by end of week

  161. m&m

    I doubt I'd be able to make it

  162. jabberjocke has left

  163. jabberjocke has joined

  164. m&m

    anything else

  165. m&m notes we're 5 minutes over

  166. stpeter

    nothing else here

  167. fippo

    thanks for not accepting jingle-sdp ;-)

  168. m&m bangs gavel

  169. stpeter


  170. m&m

    fippo: it was close, though

  171. m&m

    we almost accepted because of your insistence we not

  172. m&m

    stpeter: will you be in the office later today?

  173. fippo

    mh... I need to make a note on trying reverse psychology against the current council

  174. stpeter

    fippo: :)

  175. m&m

    of course, now that you've noted that, we'll note it ourselves

  176. stpeter

    m&m: I'm in the office now, but not later :P

  177. m&m

    stpeter: hrm

  178. stpeter

    reminds me of the old Mad magazine stuff about spy vs. anti-spy vs. anti-anti-spy...

  179. m&m


  180. stpeter

    m&m: we can chat IRL :P

  181. m&m

    stpeter: but I like using non-obvious channels! Gives the the various TLAs more places to look!

  182. Dave Cridland

    m&m, There are four-letter acronyms at play in this space too.

  183. stpeter

    OK, I'll text you about the smoke signals I would send except it's so rainy today

  184. m&m

    and I'll start a hangout about the drumbeats in response to your text on the smoke signals

  185. stpeter laughs

  186. stpeter


  187. m&m

    then we can tweet it and maybe even like it

  188. Dave Cridland

    "I'll post on Facebook and you'll like it." - always sounds like a parent telling off, to me.

  189. MattJ

    Oh! Forgot AOB - I'm owing a vote on 301

  190. MattJ

    I'll post to the ist

  208. Tobias

    so..what do you guys think about a xep for pinning certs? http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-perrin-tls-tack-02 isn't going to be adapted soon by TLS implementations and http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-websec-key-pinning-08 is http specific

  209. Kanchil

    Tobias: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-perrin-tls-tack-02: draft-perrin-tls-tack-02 - Trust Assertions for Certificate Keys

  210. Lance

    Tobias: would this be for s2s or c2s?

  211. Tobias

    why not both

  212. Tobias


  213. Lance

    sure :) i just dont always have access to the needed info for c2s implementations

  214. Lance glares at python's incomplete stdlib openssl bindings

  215. Tobias

    PyTLS (or what's it called) allows access to cert fingerprints

  216. Tobias


  217. Tobias

    or i've been looking at the wrong lib some days ago

  218. Lance

    oh, ok. i can do fingerprints in python

  219. Lance now glares at browsers for not exposing cert information to JS

  220. Lance

    so, yeah. +1 go for it

  221. tato has joined

  222. stpeter


  223. stpeter

    Tobias: yes, does sound interesting

  224. stpeter

    I need to log off now, will think about it and provide feedback on whatever you propose
