dwdZash, Reading the history - yeah, I really need to find the time to post about that stuff in a sane way. Maybe even write a XEP or two for the easy bits.
ZashI'll look forward to that then
Florianjust got home in time :D
dwdI think that counts us as quorate. But agenda-less - I've been on the road nearly constantly since last week's meeting, actually.
FlorianI think one topic is GSoC update ... which should be quite quick
dwdKev, Have you got anything to say on GSoC?
KevWe should keep improving the ideas list.
KevThat's about it right now.
dwdAny movement on that since last time?
dwd(The ideas list, I mean)
KevWe've got a number of ideas there.
KevPeter chased Gajim and got some ideas there (although one's inappropriate).
FlorianI chased the Tigase guys, but it looks like they won't have any spare ressources to take on mentees
KevThe next step, if we're accepted, is to sort out teaser tasks.
KevCurrent community thought on this is that they're a jolly good thing.
Kev(Swift used them last year, after nickingthe idea from other projects in previous years)
dwdShould the XSF itself add anything? Like maybe use GSoC resource to make a start on the testing/conformance stuff we've talked about in years past?
stpeterI'd be more comfortable with that idea if we had at least something to start from
stpeterBTW, I could probably get ISOC funding for that project
dwdAh, that might be interesting. Is there anything else the XSF ought to be doing at this stage?
Kevdwd: I don't think so.
stpeterdwd: however, again, I'd want to make sure we could follow through on it
KevI don't think we should encourage new projects.
dwdstpeter, Yes, quite.
KevIf the XSF can't managed to get started on the project itself, it can't effectively mentor it, IMHO.
dwdKev, Seems reasonable.
dwdOK, so I think that covers things for now.
dwdIs there anything else people want to discuss?
stpetersomeone never posted the Brussels report :(
dwdYes, that's true.
stpeterhave we seen any follow-up on the web/xmpp integration stuff?
dwdNo, we haven't, and that is mostly my fault - I should write up my thoughts and kick things off.
stpeterwell, I was thining also of Simon, Sonny Piers on websocket, etc.
stpeterI will have time to work on the websocket stuff in April
dwdYes, it's not exclusively my fault...
stpeterbut those aren't board topics, I suppose
beargets out of one meeting and....
dwdIn as much as they spawn from a more general failure to follow through on the SUmmit...
stpeterI do think it would be great to get involved with ISOC for various reasons, so perhaps we can brainstorm on the members@ list about possible projects and how to make those happen instead of just talking about them :)
dwdstpeter, Yes - how does their funding actually work?
stpeterdwd: they have grants of some kind, I've basically been promised money if I can come up with a proposal
dwdstpeter, Sounds promising, if a little vague. :-) I'm pretty sure there are things we could be usefully doing if we had the money to promote them.
stpeteredits the FOSDEM 2012 report at xmpp.org
stpeterdwd: I can provide more details, but I think the gating factor is the lack of confidence that we can effectively manage such a project since we've not had great success with code projects in the past
dwdThis is true - solving that problem is probably not very easy as long as we're trying some very grand ideas.
dwd(Like an interop test suite that does everything)
stpeteror something :)
dwdMaybe a good first step would be to take that server list code that's been kicked about, and gradually add some tests to that.
stpeteranother thing for me to think about in my Post-IESG Life™
stpeterwhat is the server list code?
dwdI think it does some basic DNS/SRV tests as it is, and enhancing something is *much* more likely to happen than starting something from scratch.
dwdstpeter, That one mentioned on operators@.
dwdBut anyway, I think that's something we could discuss elsewhere - anything else we need to discuss here?
stpeterI don't have anything else
stpeterI need to send out the invoices and receipts, will do that tomorrow
dwdOK, so in that case, motion to adjourn [etc].
dwdAnd thanks to those present.
KevNow we see how many Board members are still awake :)
KevOr whether anyone notices if it's me that seconds.
luca tagliaferrihas left
stpeterfinally writes that damn Brussels report
stpeterbut quickly, I have a lot to finish today before the IESG telechat tomorrow
Sounds like you mostly just trade bandwith costs for code complexity and local storage costs.
