After a brief hiatus, I would like to apply again for XSF membership. In the past I have served as an author on many XEPs and acted as an editor and member of the council.


I've contributed a number of features to Conversations (though I mostly don't work on Android anymore) and many more one-off patches to other XMPP clients, servers, and libraries. In particular, I wrote and maintain the Mellium set of XMPP tools and libraries for Go.

My goals in re-joining the XSF are to help create some benefit to joining other than being allowed to volunteer on committees, and possibly to run again for a position on the board or council. I am also still attempting to find a way to work on XMPP related projects during my day job again, and am hoping that being a member might help.


Here are some of the XEPs I've written or contributed to in the past.
