It’s a week until the XMPP Summit in Brussels, which I won’t be able to attend. However, I do have some thoughts about two of the subjects that are on the agenda that I wanted to share.
Carbons/MAM and e2e-encryption seem to be moving in two completely opposite directions: MAM wants to store messages server-side, while e2e protocols like OTR want to ensure those stored messages are useless. But I don’t think they’d have to be mutually exclusive. I think it would be possible to find a solution that unifies the two concepts.
