GuusI've deleted most of the old, merged branches there
GuusUnsure about the 'german news' part, JC (or for any localized news, for that matter)
Guusotherwise, yey :)
jonaswwhat’s the status of tweeting things?
jonaswalso, good morning everyone :)
GuusUnsure. I can. CommWT should, but I don't know if they've asked for their accounts to be added to tweetdeck, and ifso, if that has been arranged.
Guus(iteam, notably Kev, will be able to help with that)
jonaswhm, what’s blocking the "retweet" of that Eve Online thing?
jcbrandGuus: I feel relatively strongly about including non-English articles. They can be at the bottom of the newsletter. In so many places and communities there is an Anglo-American bias pervading thought and discussions due to the dominance of the English language. Non-English speakers sometimes have a different perspective on things that get lots otherwise. For example, I often see XMPP as IM option being considered more seriously in German articles than in English ones. My impression is that Germans also value online privacy more than average.
jcbrandGuus, jonasw: concerning tweets, AFAIR, we need to ask the board for access. I've asked nyco a few times, but he seems to be quite busy. Can I write an email to someone about this?
jcbrandGuus thinking further about non-English articles, we could keep all text in the email English, even when linking to a non-English article. People can then use Google translate to read it in English if they're interested.
Guusjcbrand: you have stronger feelings about this subject than I do. I can live with any choice comm comes up with
jcbrandGuus: It's still unclear to me how to properly communicate with the board. For example, besides the Tweetdeck access, we also have two people who want to join, winfried and Neustradamus. Who should I contact in this regard?
Guusas for twitter: there aught not to be the need for explicit approval. I brought this up during the board meeting, at which point Ralph pointed out that iteam will facilitate comms with whatever they need to help with their mission goal (not his exact words, but something to that extend).
jcbrandKev wanted to play it safe, so wanted it to go through board first, but that was before the CommsWT was established formally.
GuusJC, read back the logs of the board meeting. In my view, it's clear that comms can have access. If you or Kev are unsure, I'll be happy to bring it up in board explicitly again (but I was cut short when I did last time, with the reasoning that such board approval wasn't needed).
Guusas for contacting the board. I've been struggling with that myself last year. I think either reaching out to individual board members (you just did) or posting on the members list are yoru best bet
Guusplease persist until your item pops up on our Trello board
Guuswhat's N's actual name?
GuusLudovic Bocquet, right?
GuusI've added both member requests as items to vote for board
GuusI'll hold off with the Tweetdeck thingy until I hear from you or iteam that a vote is needed, ok?
jcbrandThank you Guus!
jcbrandI've updated the CommsTeam wiki page: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/CommTeam
jcbrandSaltyBones, Neustradamus, nyco, Seve: I made a wiki page where you can submit articles for the next Newsletter. https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/News_and_Articles_for_the_next_XMPP_Newsletter
jcbrandThe first newsletter outline is on Github: https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/blob/comms-team-newsletter/content/posts/newsletter/2018-03.md
GuusNice! Maybe broadcast that inbox to the members list? Non team-members might have input that's of interest.
jcbrandok, will do
SaltyBonesvery nice, of course I am disappointed that we are not using XMPP for collecting suggestions ;)
jcbrandright tool for the right job
jonaswGuus, so you could re-post that thing on twitter?
GuusI can repost what?
Guus(yes I can)
jonaswGuus, https://www.eveonline.com/article/p4i0qx/new-chat-backend-coming-with-the-march-release I think this was discussed here already?
Sevejcbrand, I will try to chatch up later today if possible, I will get out of the office later than usual. What's wrong on discussing stuff in this MUC? (I've just read the Wiki)
SeveWell anyway, I will try to check everything at night If I can
Guusjonasw, oh, yeah. I thnk I did retweet that, but form my personal account.
jcbrandSeve: I don't understand your question, who said there's anything wrong? Although, I would say that since this room doesn't have MAM enabled, it's less useful than it could be
Guusit'd be nice for the commteam to be able to do this though :)
jonaswGuus, true, but that shouldn’t block parts of commteam to do it for now, should it?
jcbrandGuus: I read the board minutes again, looks to me like I can just ask the iteam directly.
Guusjonasw: no, but a) I'm not on the commsteam, and b) they don't have access yet. That's what JC just referred to. It's in the works.
Guusif they can't get access soon, I'll post it, ok?
jonaswI didn’t realize that you’re not in Commsteam
Guusbut I'm anxcious for other people to be able to do things :)
jonaswyeah, that makes sense, sorry
jonaswI was under the impression that you’re part of commsteam
jonaswnow it all makes sense
Neustradamus/!\ It is not complete yet for Psi/Psi+ about OMEMO, do not announce for the moment
jcbrandI removed it
SaltyBonesNeustradamus: Here: ⚠️ ;)
NeustradamusWhat do you think? https://github.com/ForkAwesome/Fork-Awesome/commit/796dc7470741ab46f24a8970c9904983f2b0de75
SaltyBonesI scrolled a bit but couldn't find and image of the actual icon. ;)
