The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its second devcon and interoperability
testing event on Monday, February 26, 2007 in Brussels, Belgium. This is the Monday after [[FOSDEM 2007]]. All interested developers of XMPP servers, clients, and code libraries are welcome to attend.
A detailed agenda will be worked out at FOSDEM 2007 through a just-in-time process of discussion. In general there will be two main activities: (1) in-depth problem-solving related to pressing XMPP protocol extensions and (2) interoperability testing of codebases represented by developers in attendance.
For information about the FOSDEM agenda itself, see [http://ralphm.net/blog/2007/02/09/fosdem_2007_devroom this post].
==Discussion Topics==
At FOSDEM 2007 we talk informally about high-priority topics in the XMPP world, but at the one-day devcon we will devote more time to in-depth problem solving and technology development. Here are some potential topics for discussion:
* Personal Eventing via Pubsub (PEP)
* End-to-end encryption
* Jingle
* Spim prevention
* Set up of an online environment for ongoing testing
* Establishment of a certification program
* Simultaneous XML editing (for whiteboarding etc.)
* SASL EXTERNAL and the Intermediate Certification Authority (ICA)
* Clarifications to rfc3920bis
==Testing Focus==
The focus for this event will still be core XMPP compliance, including the modifications in rfc3920bis and rfc3921bis, with a special focus on TLS and SASL. We will also test service discovery and entity capabilities. This will help us complete the RFC changes and prepare for work on a compliance program.
The meeting will be held 08:30 to 16:30 local time at the [http://www.atlas-hotel.be/ Atlas Hotel] at Rue du Vieux Marché aux Grains 30 in Brussels. We have reserved a block of rooms at the hotel but it is downtown so other options (youth hostels etc.) are conveniently located nearby. If you reserve a room at the Atlas Hotel, please specify "XMPP conference on 26 Feb" in the comments so you get the right room rate.
Here is the rate:
* Single room: weekend price : 75 euros, week price : 114 euros
* Double room: weekend price: 85 euros, week price : 129 euros
Breakfast and taxes included.
Room sharing is encouraged. Join the [http://mail.jabber.org/mailman/listinfo/fosdem FOSDEM discussion list] to discuss room sharing and logistics information with other participants.
The XSF will also hold an informal dinner on Sunday evening for all participants.
