  16. stpeter hey boss, I'm here! :)
  17. Kev Excellent.
  18. Kev Worryingly, I'm not showing in the occupant list, and the room is sending messages to three of my resources.
  19. stpeter although I'm still woefully behind from having been offline for 10 days
  20. stpeter heh
  21. Kev Oh, and the silly server doesn't allow me to kick myself.
  22. Kev Are you able to (please)?
  23. stpeter I can kick you, perhaps
  24. stpeter I am not allowed to kick you
  25. Kev Can you do the demote/kick/make owner dance please?
  26. stpeter sigh :)
  27. Kev Oh, wait.
  28. Kev I wonder if I can do this...
  29. Kev No, not allowed.
  30. Kev So yes, the dance needs to be done :/
  31. Kev has joined
  32. Kev Murky buckets.
  33. stpeter and you're back!
  34. Kev has left
  35. Kev Excellent.
  36. stpeter you were also an owner with typographically-challenged JIDs
  37. Kev Was I? Excellent.
  38. stpeter kismithh@domain.tld
  39. Kev Heh.
  40. Kev I'll put myself back, but without the type.
  41. Kev *typo.
  42. stpeter k
  43. stpeter good
  44. Kev Much better. Now I can do the demotion dance myself next time :)
  45. stpeter so many JIDs, so little time
  46. Kev has left
  47. Kev Quite.
  48. stpeter once again I didn't receive the meeting notification in my calendaring app
  49. waqas has joined
  50. waqas Thanks for the identica notification stpeter
  51. linuxwolf has joined
  52. stpeter waqas: sure thing!
  53. stpeter cross-posted to my Twitter account too, not that I pay any attention to Twitter
  54. stpeter quickly finishes reading https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-pim-group-rp-mapping/?include_text=1
  55. linuxwolf stpeter: so, light reading (-:
  56. stpeter miles to go before we sleep, at least with respect to tomorrow's IESG meeting
  57. Funatiker has joined
  58. Johann Prieur has joined
  59. Fritzy has joined
  60. Fritzy Good morning.
  61. bear lurks in the corner with his Board Member hat on
  62. wjt has joined
  63. Kev (I asked bear along for the FOSDEM discussions)
  64. stpeter I wish there were a way to move tabs around in Psi, as there is in Firefox
  65. stpeter too many tabs...
  66. Kev There is, but you won't like it :)
  67. stpeter heh
  68. Kev Aaaaaanyway, it's Wednesday, it's four o'clock, and it's Council time!
  69. Fritzy it's 8am, and I'm in my pajamas.
  70. Kev 1) Roll call.
  71. Fritzy here
  72. linuxwolf there
  73. Kev I believe I'm here also.
  74. Kev Ralph has just gone AFK, and I've not seen MattJ today.
  75. Kev 2) Agenda bashing.
  76. Kev Seems fairly quiet.
  77. Kev 3) FOSDEM.
  78. Fritzy I'll be there. Last time we talked, I wasn't going, but I am now.
  79. stpeter :)
  80. Fritzy have we determined what we're doing for a competition?
  81. stpeter sorry, had a phone call
  82. Kev Does Council need to do anything in preparation for this? Board asked me to send a mail to members@ asking what people wanted to do for the hackfest on the Friday, which no-one has yet replied to.
  83. stpeter let's get Florian in here
  84. waqas has left
  85. Kev stpeter: That's why bear's been invited :)
  86. Kev I would have asked Florian as our man on the ground, but his status indicates he's on his mobile.
  87. admin@im.flosoft.biz has joined
  88. stpeter ah
  89. stpeter there he is
  90. Kev Florian: see above :)
  91. stpeter Florian is Mr. Competition
  92. admin@im.flosoft.biz Wow, I seem to be able to do MUC
  93. Fritzy :_
  94. admin@im.flosoft.biz So, what's up?
  95. Kev Does Council need to do anything to prepare for FOSDEM?
  96. Kev I sent my mail to members@ asking about the Friday, as requested, although no-one's answered.
  97. admin@im.flosoft.biz Talks?
  98. bear is Interop going to be an official event?
  99. admin@im.flosoft.biz Interop on Friday maybe?
  100. Kev What sort of interop?
  101. admin@im.flosoft.biz As we have people hacking on clients and servers?
  102. waqas has joined
  103. Fritzy either interop or a hackfest
  104. bear that's why I was asking kev
  105. Kev I'm happy to have a day hacking on stuff, and it'd be fun, the question is whether it's the best use of time/resources.
  106. admin@im.flosoft.biz Hmm...
  107. stpeter replies to Kev's message on the summit@ list
  108. bear I would (personally) love to see some client lib hacking against the interop servers
  109. Kev bear: explain.
  110. Kev Oh, was it summit@ that I mailed? Whatever :)
  111. Kev Thanks Peter.
  112. Fritzy well, we've done a bunch of s2s interop, and even some c2s interop. It's time for some client to server interop, right?
  113. Fritzy errr. c2c not c2s
  114. Kev Isn't c2s interop synonymous with client to server interop?
  115. linuxwolf that's what I was thinking...
  116. Fritzy yeah, type-o
  117. Kev Right, let's try the whole sentence again with the right words :)
  118. Fritzy -_-
  119. bear right what fritzy meant to say: some basic c2c across each interop server
  120. Fritzy ok, we've done s2s and client-to-client, but we haven't done much client-to-server that I'm aware of.
  121. Kev Ok.
  122. Fritzy making sure that clients are treating certificates correctly, etc.
  123. bear nods
  124. Fritzy dealing with jid binding correctly for edge cases, etc
  125. linuxwolf nods … and expects lots of failures there
  126. Kev Right, there was a little of that in interop week, but Swift was the only client that was keeping up with the tests I published.
  127. linuxwolf it's good to be the King? (-;
  128. Kev (where keeping up isn't used as a synonym for passing)
  129. Kev linuxwolf: I think there was a general lack of interest from client devs, compared to server devs.
  130. Fritzy what client devs are we going to have there? I'd be happy to run Sleek through it.
  131. Fritzy I think there was general unawareness from client devs.
  132. Kev stpeter: Is our 'net connection going to be sensible this year?
  133. Fritzy we'll be at Cisco, so I'd hope so.
  134. Kev If it is, I can have the various test servers for invalid certs etc. set up for testing against remotely.
  135. Kev Fritzy: Never hurts to check.
  136. bear that's my secret/evil plan - alternating server interop with client/lib interop. so they are continually building on the successes of the prior sessions
  137. stpeter Kev: yes, it should be!
  138. Fritzy and maybe the council/board could seek out client devs ahead of time, poking them individually.
  139. waqas Tests for non-ASCII hostnames in certs would be good. Along with unusual DNS configurations.
  140. Kev bear: Well, I'd rather we ran them at the same time tbh.
  141. bear kev - just trying to avoid burnout of one or the other
  142. Kev Client testing relies on having the test servers up, and there's no motivation for the server vendors to spend (significant) resources on the event for client testing.
  143. admin has joined
  144. Kev waqas: We can test those things, but given the simultaneous upheaval in internationalisation stuffs, it's not clear to me that it's a worthwhile exercise.
  145. Kev We'll find out how good support is for the standard we're about to change :)
  146. bear my working assumption is until we get both sides generating data interest will be hard to maintain
  147. Fritzy what kind of data?
  148. admin has left
  149. bear this server does xep x, y, z but not q
  150. admin has joined
  151. Kev Ok, so, I propose that what we do on Friday is (apart from Peter's early session on internationalisation), we don't schedule talks, and that we spend the day in a combination of hacking and informal testing.
  152. bear this client supports y, z but fails on x
  153. admin has left
  154. stpeter BTW I volunteered to present an internationalization tutorial on Friday
  155. bear +1 to kev's idea
  156. Kev bear: Note that we have those data (and published them) for all of the participating clients and servers for the last test event.
  157. admin has joined
  158. who has joined
  159. Kev stpeter: Yes, isn't that what I said?
  160. bear kev - yep, and that's the first step
  161. admin has left
  162. Lance has joined
  163. Fritzy I think we need to reach out to people individually ahead of time
  164. admin has joined
  165. Kev So, I think we need to decide if either testing or hackfesting is going to be formalised in any way for the Friday. I'm inclined to say 'no', but if people want it to be, we'll need to decide how/what.
  166. admin has left
  167. Kev Fritzy: Yes, that should have happened with the last interop, but didn't really.
  168. admin has joined
  169. admin has left
  170. Fritzy sounds like a board thing. ;)
  171. Kev It was :)
  172. bear it was and it was early in that board iteration :(
  173. admin has joined
  174. admin has left
  175. Fritzy bear, how about we work together to seek out client dev participants? you and I can get it done.
  176. bear deal
  177. Kev So, my opinion is that there's nothing for Council to be doing in planning Friday at this stage, unless further discussion changes this.
  178. stpeter seems so
  179. bear agreed
  180. Kev Which brings us to the date of next meeting.
  181. Kev Next Wed. as usual?
  182. linuxwolf /nod
  183. Fritzy +1
  184. stpeter WFM
  185. Kev Excellent.
  186. Kev Any other business?
  187. stpeter none here
  188. Fritzy Will we have the whole council at FOSDEM?
  189. stpeter at least for toda
  190. stpeter +y
  191. stpeter Fritzy: I think so, but not sure about lw
  192. Fritzy that'll be a first
  193. linuxwolf I've gotten conflicting answers so far
  194. Fritzy we might have a meeting while we're there in peron.
  195. ralphm has joined
  196. ralphm oh eoe
  197. ralphm I couldn't get in here
  198. ralphm still loads of lag
  199. Fritzy we could plan some council discussions over theweekend.
  200. admin has joined
  201. admin has left
  202. Kev We could. Or we could just let them happen naturally :)
  203. Kev So, I think we're done then.
  204. ralphm :-(
  205. Kev ralphm: There'll be more meetings.
  206. Kev Thanks all.
  207. Kev bangs the gavel.
  208. ralphm Kev: thanks!
  209. stpeter the one time we had a formal council meeting in person, everyone else just zoned out :)
  210. ralphm doesn't sound like I missed very much
  211. Kev stpeter: That was 2008, I think.
  212. tjd.rodgers has joined
  213. Kev No, 2007
  214. stpeter 2007 sounds right
  215. waqas has left
  216. Fritzy yeah, this is 2011... things have changed! Humanity has evolved!
  217. ralphm stpeter: yeah, that didn't quite work
  218. admin has joined
  219. stpeter so much evolution, so little progress...
  220. ralphm we can just sit in a corner and maybe people want to join
  221. Fritzy In any case, I wouldn't have the meeting with the group as a whole. After hours.
  222. admin has left
  223. ralphm I wouldn't do it planary
