Thanks, Harry, I'm looking forward to it! This will be more of a

The XMPP community is *not* actively exploring the use of OTR as our
solution for end-to-end encryption, instead we are actively defining an
application-level profile of Transport Layer Security, which is already
supported on a per-hop basis in all XMPP clients and servers. More here:
