  16. MattJ Greetings!
  17. linuxwolf has joined
  18. MattJ Back in 6.5 minutes :)
  19. stpeter I told linuxwolf about the address for this room, I think he was still going to the old one :)
  20. Kev I checked with Ralph earlier that he'd be here, and Fritzy confirmed on-list, so I think we'll be good to go.
  21. stpeter rock'n'roll
  22. linuxwolf at least this week (-:
  23. Kev Yes, I'm happy with Wednesdays in general, Tuesday was just a little preferable.
  24. linuxwolf yeah, it's also preferred around my office for sprint kick-offs
  25. linuxwolf and since I must be at one, and should be all four…yeah, it's a long long day (-:
  26. Fritzy has joined
  27. Kev One to go.
  28. stpeter ah, I see a left-handed emoticon, linuxwolf must be here ;-)
  29. linuxwolf d-:
  30. ralphm has joined
  31. stpeter Swift shows icons as primary and names as secondary
  32. MattJ Present
  33. ralphm (-8
  34. Kev Where? Gimme.
  35. Fritzy yay for presents!
  36. MattJ You'll have to wait :)
  37. stpeter pours some tea and starts up some Bach
  38. Fritzy oh, good idea
  39. MattJ I wish I'd recorded stpeter at the 2008 Brussels summit saying "Presence for everyone"
  40. stpeter haha, did I say that?
  41. Fritzy I thought that was dwd.
  42. MattJ You did
  43. linuxwolf heh
  44. MattJ You wrote it on the board too, presents for bots and for components, and for servers :)
  45. Kev Use your powers only for good, linuxwolf.
  46. Fritzy MattJ: that was Cridland.
  47. Fritzy I was there.
  48. Kev has left
  49. Kev Ok, the clock turns 4.
  50. MattJ I've never confused stpeter with dwd before :)
  51. linuxwolf ok, focus
  52. stpeter :)
  53. Kev Welcome Council of '10-'11.
  54. Fritzy haha, ok. Well, maybe Peter was in on it too. :)
  55. MattJ Welcome Kev
  56. Kev Agendaness:
  57. Kev 1) Roll call
  58. Kev All here.
  59. Kev 2) Agenda bashing.
  60. Kev Any?
  61. Kev Actually.
  62. Kev That should be 3)
  63. Kev 2) Selecting a chair.
  64. stpeter don't we start at zero? :P
  65. Fritzy Do you like being chair, Kev?
  66. ralphm 0. Hello!
  67. linuxwolf +1 for Kev
  68. ralphm +1
  69. Fritzy Does anyone else want a shot?
  70. Kev Fritzy: I like 30minute meetings, and I don't mind doing it, so the two go quite well.
  71. linuxwolf no thanks, I run enough meetings (-:
  72. MattJ If Kev's happy for chair, I'm +1
  73. Fritzy +1 for Kev
  74. Kev Ta.
  75. MattJ Unanimous, congratulations Kev :)
  76. Kev 3) Agenda bashing?
  77. MattJ for taking the job nobody else wants
  78. waqas has joined
  79. MattJ None here
  80. Kev Kurt wants me to mention 258, so I'll do that later.
  81. Kev 4) Council habits and other items of clothing.
  82. stpeter laughs
  83. Fritzy A pun.
  84. linuxwolf heh
  85. Kev A reminder to those who were here last year, and a re-introduction for Matt.
  86. Kev Largely these are in place so I can have my hating-meetings-going-over-30-minutes streak satisfied.
  87. Kev * It's nice for people to turn up to meetings, or let me know if you're not
  88. Kev * I don't think anyone has a problem with voting on-list instead of in-MUC.
  89. Kev * We have voting periods these days, instead of chasing Council members for months to read the specs, so if you've not objected within a fortnight of a meeting with a motion to Experimental, you'll be assumed to not have objected, and if you don't vote within a fortnight of a meeting with a vote, you'll be DNV, and marked as such (and your vote is counted as +-0.
  90. dwd has joined
  91. Kev I think that's largely it, anyone else?
  92. ralphm fortunately all the /council pages are MIAA
  93. ralphm -A
  94. stpeter and do subscribe to http://xmpp.org/calendar/xsf-council.ics
  95. MattJ +un?
  96. Kev ralphm: Someone on commteam should be chased.
  97. stpeter we have http://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/xsf/the-xsf-council/
  98. Kev I need the redirect list to be given to me so I can make all the old URLs work.
  99. stpeter so that might need to be updated
  100. Kev MattJ: hmm?
  101. stpeter Kev: indeed
  102. stpeter ^ unfortunately, not fortunately
  103. MattJ Kev, nothing, ralphm said "fortunately" - it was a sarcasm or typo I think, all the same to me :)
  104. Kev Ah.
  105. Kev Right.
  106. ralphm stpeter: I mean all of the old pages. Yes, I misplaced my sarcasmicon
  107. Kev 5) Inviting authors.
  108. ralphm good idea
  109. Kev Yes, so, there was a proposal at the end of last term that authors of XEPs being considered for advancement, or protoXEPs for acceptance, should be invited to the relevant meetings.
  110. Fritzy Yeah, I like that.
  111. Kev I think this is broadly a good idea.
  112. linuxwolf has left
  113. MattJ +1
  114. MattJ Whose job is it? :)
  115. linuxwolf has joined
  116. Kev We started doing this last year, and the authors were largely either people who attend anyway, or replied saying 'sorry, can't make it', but I'm happy to start trying again.
  117. Kev MattJ: I'm delighted if someone else wants to, otherwise I'll assume it's mine.
  118. stpeter it might also help to forward the agenda to standards@
  119. linuxwolf +1
  120. Kev Right, I was going to make agendas point 6
  121. Kev Let's do that now :)
  122. stpeter if an author follows the list or knows that their spec is up for discussion, they might join the meeting
  123. Kev 6) Agendas
  124. MattJ Since the council list isn't open to subscribers (afaik) that would make sense
  125. stpeter council is open to subscribers
  126. Kev Last year I got into the habit of sending agendas out on Monday morning on the day of a meeting, by mail to council@.
  127. stpeter but few subscribe
  128. Kev I've done the agenda by website in the past and consider it a nuisance, but we can go back to doing that if people want.
  129. Fritzy email is fine with me
  130. bear stpeter - after your meeting can I ask if/how I can make changes to the calendar
  131. MattJ I don't mind either way as long as I can read it :)
  132. Kev So which bits of agendaness would people like changed?
  133. Kev Sending it to standards@ is fine by me, I do that with the minutes anyway.
  134. Fritzy email to standards or council is fine with me.
  135. Fritzy standards might be better for transparency
  136. Kev No-one's complained about the agenda going out on the morning of the meeting, does this bother anyone?
  137. MattJ The only issue I have with agendas is that sometimes I don't know well enough in advance what's to be on them :)
  138. MattJ Ha
  139. linuxwolf has left
  140. linuxwolf has joined
  141. stpeter bear: sure thing, just edit the relevant events.xml file (they are sprinkled thoughout the repository), check in your changes, and run calgen.py on athena at /home/xsf/xmpp/
  142. Kev Fritzy: Well, it's transparent if it's on council@, as that's archived and public subscribable, but I don't mind forwarding to standards@ for general interest.
  143. linuxwolf sorry guys…something odd is happening with my server today
  144. MattJ In general it's not an issue, and I appreciate it's hard to keep on top of
  145. Kev linuxwolf: Can't trust those server guys.
  146. MattJ Definitely not
  147. bear i'll have to get with the infra team later to be added to git list
  148. Kev The reason it got to Mondays was that Peter started doing Radar to make my life easier, then Peter got busy and that got updated later, so I sent agendas later.
  149. Kev Now that I'm sorting out agendas based on the XEP Editor emails Peter sends out again, I can make them earlier.
  150. cnewtoni has joined
  151. cnewtoni has left
  152. stpeter http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Radar is handy
  153. Chris Newton has joined
  154. ralphm well, if we are moving to Wednesday, monday should be fine
  155. stpeter when it's updated :)
  156. Kev So I'll endeavour to continue sending them out Monday morning, for the meetings later in the week.
  157. stpeter Kev: WFM!
  158. Chris Newton linuxwolf, I never trust those server guys either.
  159. MattJ stpeter, when it's up to date radar is handy :)
  160. Kev bear: Talk to me later. I'll sort it out.
  161. MattJ Kev, thanks - Monday works
  162. Fritzy sudo corrupts, root corrupts absolutely.
  163. linuxwolf heh
  164. stpeter MattJ: yeah, whn
  165. Fritzy why do you keep talking to bear? I don't see him saying *anything*
  166. Kev Ok, so, agenda-wise, I'll send to standards@ as well, send it earlier relatively, and copy in XEP authors.
  167. stpeter most excellent
  168. Fritzy gravy
  169. MattJ All good
  170. Kev 7) XEP-0258 (labels)
  171. Kev Kurt'd like me to give a heads up that he's approaching ready with this, is going to tidy it up, encourage implementors to update to the latest, and then will be requesting a last call.
  172. linuxwolf /nod
  173. ralphm yay
  174. MattJ Excellent
  175. linuxwolf hopefully this incarnation sticks
  176. Kev I had a discussion with him about reverting to the :0 version, with flat catalogues etc because the current version is more complex, but he persuaded me that it needs a hierachy.
  177. MattJ I have an implementation I can bring up to date then
  178. Fritzy you do?
  179. dwd linuxwolf, I think so. Given Kurt maintains ours, Kev maintains Swift's, and I maintain Gajim's, we can manage to bring those up to date.
  180. MattJ Fritzy, I do, mostly :)
  181. Kev 8) Date of next meeting.
  182. linuxwolf plus, it helps that Kurt works directly with agencies that cannot be named
  183. dwd Fritzy, Interop tested no less.
  184. Kev I'll propose Wednesdays (starting in 8 days) at 4pm UK, and see how much Matt dislikes it.
  185. MattJ You need to disambiguate "Matt" now Kev :)
  186. dwd linuxwolf, Including one that has called me a subversive. :-)
  187. linuxwolf you'll need to clarify which "Matt" (-:
  188. Kev Bother.
  189. stpeter heh
  190. Kev MW.
  191. MattJ I'll survive for now
  192. MattJ (at 4pm)
  193. linuxwolf dwd: I thought you liked being called a subversive? (-:
  194. ralphm WFM
  195. linuxwolf +1
  196. Fritzy +1 for Wednesdays 1600UTC
  197. Kev Great, so next meeting'll be a week tomorrow.
  198. MattJ Perfect
  199. Kev Who wants responsibility for updating the calendar?
  200. MattJ I can do it
  201. Kev Excellent.
  202. Kev Oh, and minute writing. I'm happy to continue doing that, but if someone else is dying to do so I don't mind.
  203. stpeter thanks, Matthew!
  204. Kev No, I didn't think so :)
  205. MattJ Heh
  206. stpeter :P
  207. Kev 9) Any other business?
  208. Fritzy nossir
  209. MattJ ralphm, what's FOSDEM status?
  210. stpeter Kev: we might want to figure out better ways of keeping the Radar page up to date
  211. linuxwolf when's the IETF meeting? Next week?
  212. Kev linuxwolf: Yes.
  213. stpeter linuxwolf: yes, but no XMPP WG session
  214. dwd Also, is it worth raising my interop suggestion?
  215. linuxwolf no, but I'm paying attention to kitten and hybi
  216. stpeter however, I'll be presenting about internationalized JIDs at the PRECIS WG session
  217. bear i need to remember hybi wg session next week
  218. Kev stpeter: Do you have something to suggest? Finding a volunteer to track council@ and update it sound s a good idea.
  219. linuxwolf bear: make sure you have your flamesuit
  220. ralphm we have a room
  221. ralphm on saturday
  222. Fritzy wonders why he can't see bear's messages.
  223. stpeter Kev: something to discuss
  224. bear has left
  225. bear has joined
  226. Kev I'd suggest we mail members@ asking for a volunteer to track council@ and stardards@ and update it accordingly.
  227. ralphm I'll draft a Call for presentations soonish
  228. MattJ Fritzy, bear: We'll debug after the meeting - since all 3 servers involved are Prosody :)
  229. stpeter oh, and I've sourced a meeting room in Brussels for the Summit -- it's not in the center of town, but it's free and it should have good Internet connectivity since it's at a Cisco location
  230. bear ok
  231. Kev stpeter: Excellent.
  232. Kev ralphm: Excellent, thanks.
  233. Kev (And thanks for stpeter too, didn't mean to exclude)
  234. Kev So dwd's Plan For World Domination^w^w^w^wInterop suggestion.
  235. MattJ stpeter, wonderful, thanks
  236. Kev Anything worth discussing about that?
  237. MattJ I think we just need to drum up support
  238. Kev Other than that I'm strongly in favour of just about everything he suggested.
  239. stpeter about interop? I'm behind on the thread I started (as usual!)
  240. MattJ I see tasks for iteam and commteam
  241. Kev stpeter: Summary:
  242. bear my personal suggestion would be to just start doing it, make it visible and start letting people find their own way in
  243. Kev First week in December, do it online, XSF iteam set up DNS and certs, have a mailing list for people, and try and prove basic interop.
  244. Kev bear: It's a fine suggestion, but I think it's worth getting the message out strongly and soon that XMPP interop works just fine.
  245. Kev So I think it's worth putting the effort in to make an interop test work in the first instance.
  246. bear kev, completely agree - I was just saying that over planning may hinder uptake
  247. MattJ Agreed, a week of focus would be worth it
  248. linuxwolf but we need some planning
  249. bear I'm all for getting the interop news front and center
  250. linuxwolf Oscon was too much anarchy
  251. dwd Oh, and to repeat here, Isode providing CA software is confirmed, if wanted.
  252. bear oscon was also the first time we did interop of any serious nature
  253. Kev dwd: with one of my non-Isode hats on, that sounds good to the iteam :)
  254. bear so the first week of december's interop will be just as messy until CA and DNS issues are sorted out
  255. stpeter bear: we did interop for Jingle at FOSDEM a few years ago and that went well, plus lots of basic interop (especially s2s) at the very first Summit
  256. bear oscon was hampered by dns, network and not having server folks on hand (I think)
  257. Kev I'm happy for the iteam to take on DNS and CA stuffs and make sure that works.
  258. dwd The main problem with the FOSDEM Jingle Thingle was lack of published results.
  259. Kev If we get a list of the servers that'll be taking part.
  260. Kev So I suggest that Board discuss this tomorrow, that they agree that it's a jolly good idea, and that the wheels get set in motion.
  261. bear I have the domain xmpptest.com if you think it would be useful - I can move it to the xsf
  262. stpeter OT: I love it when fellow Isoders disagree within the XMPP WG -- such a free-spirited corporate culture! ;-)
  263. Kev We've just hit 30mins, so I'm reached meeting-discomfort :)
  264. stpeter heh
  265. Kev s/I'm/I've/
  266. linuxwolf hehe
  267. stpeter ok we can discuss the interop stuff in more detail next meeting, right?
  268. Fritzy s/I've/We've/g
  269. Kev Which reminds me that I need to submit http://doomsong.co.uk/extensions/render/xep-correct.html sometime.
  270. Kev Yes, and bear's promised to get Board to agree to it tomorrow, so all is good :)
  271. bear :)
  272. Kev Right, any other any other business?
  273. Fritzy stpeter: maybe a separate meeting for interop
  274. stpeter I think we're done
  275. stpeter Fritzy: yes, could be
  276. MattJ None here
  277. Kev Jolly good. I'll write up minutes and send out. (I usually aim for <=24 hours).
  278. linuxwolf I've got one agenda item for next meeting: focus for this term
  279. Kev linuxwolf: noted.
  280. linuxwolf but we can talk about it later and/or on list
  281. stpeter linuxwolf: see also my roadmap post
  282. Kev Ok, thanks all.
  283. linuxwolf @stpeter that's what I'm refering to (-:
  284. MattJ Thanks Kev
  285. Kev bangs the gavel.
  286. linuxwolf adios amigos
  287. stpeter it's great to see all this energy -- now we just need to sustain it :)
  288. linuxwolf let's see what happens after the winter solstice (-:
  289. MattJ :)
  290. MattJ bear, ok - do you see Fritzy's messages?
  291. linuxwolf 'course, that was the council from 4-5 years ago, too (-:
  292. bear yes
  293. MattJ Fritzy, what client are you using?
  294. Fritzy Swift.
  295. MattJ bear, what client are you using?
  296. Fritzy I see them now.
  297. bear Swift
  298. bear I restarted swift
  299. MattJ Fritzy, oh really? It just started?
  300. bear after setting my status
  301. MattJ hands it over to Kev and relaxes
  302. bear I suspect swift reconnected after my laptop went to sleep and I was marked as hidden
  303. Fritzy I think it was user-error on my part.
  304. bear or that ;)
  305. linuxwolf heh
  306. bear oh - so you had me on the ignore list .... hmmm.....
  307. bear :)
  308. Fritzy My ocular-grep was skipping your avatar.
  309. Kev Haha.
  310. Fritzy or rather, not associating it with you.
  311. linuxwolf ok, on to my next meeting…ttyl
  312. bear yea, still haven't figured out how to set that
  313. linuxwolf has left
  314. Kev bear: not through Swift yet. It'll be in 1.0.
  315. bear *nod*
  316. Fritzy avatars as primary in mucs are cool, but confusing
  317. Fritzy not how my brain works, at least not without a real picture.
  318. Kev If you're in a MUC where people use avatars, I find it much much more convenient.
  319. Kev If people don't have avatars, less well.
  320. Kev Some abstracts work (e.g. I can associate MattJ and Peter by avatar fine), but I've not got bear's wired in yet.
  321. stpeter I like Kev's 30-minute meeting policy
  322. Fritzy :)
  323. Fritzy it's a good one.
  324. dwd [16:34:00] * Kev bangs the gavel.
  325. dwd 4 minutes over.
  326. Kev Yeah, I blame whoever brought up interop as an AOB.
  327. dwd stpeter, Incidentally, Isode people never disagree on the WG lists, because our participation in the IETF is always personal, thus we are not Isode people when we disagree. :-)
  328. stpeter that's true
  329. dwd stpeter, OTOH, I have heard of some companies who have premeetings prior to IETF week to ensure all their participants toe the company line.
  330. MattJ :D
  331. stpeter Cisco folks are legendary for disagreeing at IETF meetings
  332. dwd stpeter, Oh, sure. I wasn't meaning Cisco.
