Suggestion to switch from Zoom to an open source alternative for meetings

Hi all, 
This is my first message on the list here, so if I get something wrong, I apologize for that. 

The title explains it all though. Zoom has come under a lot of scrutiny lately. Letting unwanted users to join in, exposing file access to remote users, selling user data on the dark web are just some of the allegations that have been made against it. Also, the web client offers limited functionality and support, forcing users to download the app. 

I suggest using free and open source alternatives to Zoom. I have two of them in mind, namely Jitsi and Wire. The source code for these can be viewed on GitHub by anyone, and their web clients are fully featured. It also fits in the overall philosophy of ASWF and OpenColorIO to help develop and promote open source technologies. 

Regards, 
Rashil
