  12. nyco Newsletter in the making and you can contribute to it too! Tweet back with your articles and news before the end of this week!
  13. nyco we'd better tweet it today
  14. SouL Ok perfect nyco !
  15. nyco scheduled for this afternoon
  16. nyco I'm copywriting now
  17. nyco Subject/title for the October newsletter: Prepare for FOSDEM, modern XMPP features, and more news
  18. nyco please help me find better
  19. nyco FOSDEM 2020 Feb, modernization of XMPP, and more...
  20. nyco please review and edit: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Basic_communication_guide_for_XMPP_techies
  21. debacle has joined
  22. SouL nyco, do you want to mention FOSDEM from now until the event happens?
  23. nyco Ralph Meijer, chairman of the Board of Directors of the XSF, has written an introductory piece about "XMPP Message Attaching, Fastening, References" that are specifications in progress. good enough?
  24. nyco yes, so we prepare as a community ?
  25. nyco JabberFr, the French XMPP/Jabber community, has again translated the XMPP newsletter in French, merci beaucoup. could be improved?
  26. nyco > For the poor lonesome techies, we wrote a very minimalistic communication guide, could be worth for some. how is it?
  27. SouL Ralph Meijer, chairman of the Board of Directors of the XSF, has written an introductory piece about "XMPP Message Attaching, Fastening, References", specifications currently in progress (I would say, but yours is not bad or anything, just my take)
  28. nyco > Multiple Vulnerabilities found in Dino, please update as soon as possible. probably too simple
  29. nyco changed, thx SouL
  30. nyco > As usual every year, that time has come: we proudly announce the XMPP Summit 24 and the FOSDEM. The 24th XMPP Summit will happen on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st of January, and the FOSDEM will be held on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of February. Prepare for the community gathering.
  31. nyco > Réda Housni Alaoui is reviving the formerly dormant Vysper XMPP server, please pronounce "whisper". what do you think of this text?
  32. nyco > Xabber Server v.0.9 alpha is released, with quick installation and management panel, and interesting innovations. how about that?

  35. SouL nyco, would you think using something like https://cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/edit/RWzuCOWMNcOk+aW9c8fcHH3E/ would help to work and review the newsletter?
  36. nyco > The Fastpath Service plugin has been released in versions 4.4.4 and 4.4.5., bringing support for managed queued chat requests, such as a support team might use. and this?
  37. nyco sure SouL
  38. nyco tooling is not in debate
  39. nyco collboraiton is
  40. nyco who's willing to collaborate?
  41. nyco I'll make the switch IF I get help
  42. nyco I won't make the switch IF there is no help
  43. nyco so we collect on the wiki, copywrite on a pad, move it to GitHub, then the newsletter editor
  44. nyco suboptimal I would say
  45. nyco rather painful for me
  46. nyco adding a link in the chain is intuitively adding a pain point
  47. SouL How do you want to do it?
  48. nyco I'm doing it on the wiki
  49. nyco how will you collaborate?
  50. nyco (will you?)
  51. nyco over time, the XMPP Journal, the XMPP Roundup, the XMPP newsletter has traditionally been a one man effort that can change for the bext
  52. nyco for now the process is super manual, quite heavy and error-prone
  53. nyco btw TinyLetter uses some kind of weird WYSIWYG editor
  54. SouL I'm a bit sad to hear that, I even wrote some newsletters, the reason I didn't take the lead is because I'm not able to do that. I unfortunately work for a company, which limits my time, I'm new in a country and I have to learn the language and many other things. I don't think I even should tell this, if I ask about how to collabrate is because I'm already doing it, depending on how much I can do it. If you can write more than me, at least I can always have my eyes and help reviewing, if I can write, then I can leave it written and you can review it. But if there is no protocol in place, of course is difficult for other people to help out
  55. LNJ has joined
  56. nyco sorry
  57. nyco the tools we have are here
  58. nyco it's not about you
  59. nyco it's not about time and capacity
  60. nyco but the commTeam is not a team
  61. nyco there are doers, and the others
  62. SouL I just need to know I can edit the newsletter without having conflicts while you do it, etc
  63. nyco > MongooseIM 3.4.1 is out now with and important security upgrade, fixing a vulnerability that increased the chance of a cluster node crash. Read the whole thread on Twitter for more precise info.
  64. nyco you can
  65. nyco I am editing one section at a time
  66. nyco never the whole page
  67. nyco so, I wrote the servers
  68. nyco now I'm on the clients

  83. nyco ok, I moved the Dino vulnerabilities in the clients section, and moved the Monal/Airdrop in articles

  134. ralphm There's a lot of unclarity on the communication around Kik yesterday
  135. ralphm So one article (by Ted Livingston) says, among other things, that they are shutting down Kik. Another talks about alledged fake text messages from him about the topic, resulting in a retracted post over at coindesk
  136. ralphm In any case, my view on it is that a) they had a lot of users b) having a single company be able to pull the plug on it is terrible.
  137. ralphm (and c) a lot of people feel entitled to the continuance of the platform, while probably not paying for it in any way)
  138. ralphm All in all it doesn't like the best way to communicate things.
  139. ralphm look like
  140. ralphm According to statistics published by the Kin Foundation, they had between 10 and 15 million monthly active users
  141. ralphm nyco: ^

  159. SouL I've been through the newsletter and edited here and there, nyco. Thank you for the big task. I haven't added a catchy subject yet, not sure right now what to say. One thing though, do you feel we should call it October edition? Even if we send it in October, I would prefer to call it September edition (or send it the last day of the month). It is just more logical to me, what do you think?

  162. SouL It is just because we are talking about what has happened in September. If I say "September edition" my brain connects it to events in September
  163. nyco ok then, it would be better to send it before the end of the month
  164. nyco let's keep the date to the 1st of October this time, and call it September indeed
  165. SouL Yes yes, is not a problem to publish it the 1st of the next month
  166. nyco I'd prefer to finish the month, and send it on the first Tuesday or Wednesday of following month
  167. SouL For some reason in particular? Is what magazines do?
  168. debacle has joined
  169. nyco middle of week is the peak of attention and productivity
  170. SouL Ah, well, yeah that's right
  171. nyco Wed is max, then come Tue and Thu
  172. nyco that's why I prefer Tue or Wed
  173. nyco it leaves time for reader to open and read it
  174. SouL Tuesday is a good day
  175. nyco yep
  176. SouL The day when is published is not a problem for the name, so I'm very much +1 for Tuesdays!
  177. nyco ok
