Hi there,

Starting this week-end (after the conference) creating new rooms on our
Jitsi instance <> will require
authentication (from our Single Sign-On platform).  Joining an existing
room will remain possible without authentication.  “Guests” will need to
wait in the lobby until someone opens the room, at which point they will
be let in automatically.

This likely means that creating new rooms will no longer be possible
from the mobile app (a browser is needed to render the SSO portal form
and redirect back).  Again, joining existing rooms from the mobile will
remain possible however.

The rationale is to avoid our instance being abused and/or used for non
TDF-related meetings.  For now creating a new room will be limited to
TDF members; please shout out if you need to create new rooms but are
not a TDF member yet (though if that's the case you should definitely
consider applying for membership ^^), we can create ad-hoc ACLs if needs
be.  Also at first there won't be any distinction between rooms (*any*
TDF member will be able to create *any* room), but fine-tuning (so say
only BoD chair can open this room or only staff can open that room etc.)
is possible if desired.

Note also that a room stays alive until the last person hangs up, even
after the creator and moderators have left.  Please use shared secrets
to secure rooms from unsolicited visitors, either by setting a password
after creation or via the use of passwordless rooms with non-guessable
