erkanfilesHey guys, GeOrg asked me to translate the newsletters to german.
Sounds like a realistic way getting involved ;-)

vanitasvitaeerkanfiles: great idea!
erkanfilesWhere to submit the results? Or should I start with upcoming newsletters?
How to get the drafts before releasing?
vanitasvitaeI think jc is often composing the newsletter, so he might help.
SouLerkanfiles, what we are doing with the current french translations is, linking the translations to somewhere where they are hosted. You can check it here:
SouLerkanfiles, arnaudj is the one that is translating it to French
jcerkanfiles: submissions are made here: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/News_and_Articles_for_the_next_XMPP_Newsletter#Submissions
jcLooks a bit sparse ATM
jcI look there, then I also look at my RSS reader and in Twitter/Mastodon
jcerkanfiles: I always start writing at the last minute... it would be nice to have drafts for you earlier, but that makes it even more work for me.
SouLWe don't have a place to host translations currently
jcI would however not stop anyone else from starting an initial draft eariler
jcThere's no rule that says only I can write the newsletter.
jcSouL: has also done it before
jcProbably translations could be hosted on xmpp.org as well, but that would require changes to the website
SouLI wanted to start this month writing the newsletter during the month. I think is not fair if you are always writing it, jc :)
Unfortunately this month has been crazy for me, I'm not in Copenhagen until 16 of January and it is hard to find time
jc> this month has been crazy for me... it is hard to find time
Which is why I always write it at the last minute
erkanfilesHow to get a notification if there is a new text to translate for me?
jcerkanfiles: Thew newsletter gets sent at the last Friday of each month (generally)
SouLerkanfiles, if you are able to be on this room, we can tell you, if not, you can always ask us before the month is about to end
jcerkanfiles: So best bet would be to hang out here around that time.
pep.jc: for December we might have more stuff with stuff being done at CCC
jcOk, but if no-one writes blog posts about it, there's nothing to link to in the newsletter
pep.I'm going to send something on the members list at least, to invite people to visit us. Do you think we can also twitter or something?
erkanfilesIll be at the C35C3 so there will be no time for translate before dec 31th
jcpep. I don't like linking to tweets, they don't contain enough info IMO
pep.jc: I wasn't saying we should link tweets
pep.I was just wondering if we could tweet about the xmpp assembly
pep.That's SPAM though maybe
jcTweeting is part of the commsteam as well
jcBut nobody takes it super seriously 😛
jcI do have access to the twitter account and I tweet the newsletter once a month
Guus> But nobody takes it super seriously 😛
