    Just reviewed https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0423.html . Just in case I don't make today's meeting, I'm premptively +1 on moving 0.3 to Draft.

    1) Roll Call

  51. Kev

    2, bacon.

  52. Dave Cridland

    Had 2 bacon ones for lunch today, with extra thick bacon. Yummy.

  53. Dave Cridland

    Ge0rG, Link Mauve, jonas’ ?

  54. Ge0rG

    Kevin Bacon?

  55. Ge0rG ,o/

  56. Link Mauve

    Yes, I’m here.

  57. jonas’


  58. jonas’

    am here

  59. Dave Cridland

    Well, that's a full house.

  60. jonas’

    Bacon Buger!

  61. Dave Cridland

    2) Agenda Bashing

  62. jonas’

    Bacon Burger!

  63. Link Mauve

    I’m hungry now.

  64. Link Mauve

    After failing at making mochi. :(

  65. Dave Cridland

    I'm assuming we just have XEP-0423 to Draft.

  66. Ge0rG

    Let's add something to the agenda just for the sake of it

  67. Dave Cridland

    Let's not.

  68. Dave Cridland

    3) Item for a vote:

  69. jonas’

    I’m +1 on XEP-0423 to Draft

  70. Dave Cridland

    a) Advance XEP-0423 to Draft.

  71. Ge0rG

    +1 on XEP-0423 to Draft

  72. Dave Cridland

    jonas’, Patience.

  73. Link Mauve

    I’m +1 on XEP-0423 to Draft.

  74. Link Mauve

    I’m +1 on advancing XEP-0423 to Draft.

  75. Kev

    +1. And a big thank you to Ge0rG for sticking with this. This is, I think, the most useful CS we've had in as long as I can remember - I think having some sort of nuance really helps.

  76. Link Mauve


  77. Dave Cridland

    Tempting to veto for dramatic purposes, now.

  78. Dave Cridland

    But no, best not.

  79. Ge0rG

    Dave Cridland: you could on-list instead and wait until the 20th.

  80. Dave Cridland

    +1 to advance to Draft. And I agree with Kev, this has been a lot of effort for Ge0rG, but it's resulted in a much better document than we've had for a long time.

  81. Ge0rG

    Even the 21st.

  82. Ge0rG

    And announce your vote right before Alex closes the polls.

  83. Ge0rG

    And then it will get delayed by the MTA and...

  84. Dave Cridland

    Thanks also to the rest of Council for the extra meeting and being prepared for it.

  85. jonas’

    I, too, am happy with the result, but I’m not with (nearly) burning out all CS editors

  86. jonas’

    I, too, am happy with the result, but I’m not with (nearly) burning out all CS editors/authors

  87. Dave Cridland

    So, for the record, a unanimous decision to move CS-2020 to Draft.

  88. Link Mauve


  89. Ge0rG

    I must admit, there was a period of some days after I started work on 423, where I felt burned out as well.

  90. Dave Cridland

    4) Next Meeting

  91. Link Mauve

    Next week Wednesday as usual?

  92. Link Mauve


  93. Ge0rG

    +1 for next Wednesday

  94. jonas’


  95. Dave Cridland

    Yes, I think so. I'd note that if there is anything to vote now, we'll have to either be able to vote immediately or it'll have to be re-raised by the next Council.

  96. Dave Cridland

    5) AOB

  97. jonas’

    none from me

  98. Link Mauve

    None from me either.

  99. Dave Cridland

    Other than saying how pleased I am to see lots of candidates for Board and Council, nothing from me.

  100. Dave Cridland


  101. Dave Cridland

    6) Ite, Meeting Est

  102. Dave Cridland

    Thanks all.

  103. Link Mauve

    Thanks all for this exceptional meeting!

  104. jonas’

    thanks Dave et al.

  105. jonas’

    this was a good move indeed

  106. jonas’

    pep., do you want to do the honours?

  107. pep.


  108. jonas’


  109. pep.

    Dave Cridland, what was wrong from not having this meeting and putting it on list? Council members "just" needed to react quickly and not two weeks after :)

  110. Kev

    Meetings focus the mind, sometimes. We could have onlisted, but this way worked, so ... :)

  111. jonas’

    pep., yesterday there was no version to vote on yet

  112. Ge0rG

    pep.: the Last Call technically only ended last night, and there was the pending PR

  113. jonas’

    so there had to be a meeting which started the vote

  114. pep.

    Ge0rG, ok

  115. jonas’

    it was a lucky accident that everyone voted in the meeting and not on-list

  116. Kev

    We could have started the vote yesterday, on 'whatever version is published tomorrow morning', and all on-listed, but ... this way was better, I think.

  117. Kev

    Even if I'm not a fan of extra meetings I have to attend :)

  118. Dave Cridland

    Me neither, but I'm not a fan of starting a vote on a version that's unpublished just for the purpose of ensuring a timetable.

  119. Kev

    jonas’: I think 'lucky accident' is understating the effort people put in (mostly Ge0rG) to make sure it could happen.

  120. Ge0rG

    Kev: it was a kind of lucky accident nevertheless, because my calculation of the moment when to submit the XEP was off by two weeks.

  121. jonas’

    Kev, sorry, yes

  122. jonas’

    I didn’t mean to diminish that

  123. jonas’

    I was looking at it from a concurrency architectural perspective, where a certain sequence of events is almost always an accident

  124. jonas’

    I’m too deep in concurrent code at the moment

  125. pep.

    hmm, I have no minutes to link to yet.

  126. pep.

    I guess I'll just state that

  127. jonas’

    pep., you can link to the logs of this room

  128. Kev

    Linking to minutes is a very recent thing and is just a nicety, I think. There's nothing requiring it.

  129. pep.

    Kev, sure

  130. Kev

    (Assuming you mean referencing when it was approved by Council)

  131. pep.


  132. Kev

    I mean, I think it's a /good/ nicety, but if it's proving an issue here...

  133. pep.

    Just makes it easier to check back what happened when/why

  134. Kev

    Yes, I think it's a good thing.
