    I'm considering not sending out the newsletter this month, due to lack of content

  2. jcbrand

    There were some submissions on the wiki, but quite a few are of poor quality

  3. jcbrand

    I don't think we should link to random Tweets for example

  4. jcbrand

    And there aren't many interesting articles either

  5. jcbrand

    I guess I'll still send it out, it'll just have fewer links and articles than usual

  6. SouL

    Yeah... Well, I was quite impressed that we had all that content on the past newsletters

  7. jcbrand

    SouL: Would you perhaps be available to proofread? https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/blob/newsletter/content/posts/newsletter/2018-06.md

  8. SouL

    jcbrand, that `however` at the end, does it sound good to you? `More work needs to be done, so don't expect to see this in the App Store before August however.`

  9. SouL

    I updated some links

  10. SouL

    I think it's ready although I'm not sure about that `however`

  11. jcbrand

    SouL: I purposely let it link to the introduction, which IMO is more readable and informative than the homepage

  12. jcbrand

    We can remove the "however"

  13. SouL

    jcbrand, I changed it because the link was not working

  14. SouL

    the /introduction one

  15. jcbrand


  16. SouL

    Forgot to add it to the commit, my bad

  17. jcbrand

    I thought I fixed taht

  18. jcbrand

    SouL: Ok, I fixed the link now, thanks for checking

  19. jcbrand

    And I removed the dangling "however"

  20. SouL

    Super cool, thank you very much jcbrand!

  21. jcbrand

    sure, thanks for helping

  22. MattJ

    jcbrand, I don't even know what the process is for submitting stuff to the newsletter

  23. MattJ

    I feel like there should be a ping to people - "What have you done this week that is worth going in the newsletter?"

  24. MattJ

    Could be an XMPP bot :)

  25. jcbrand

    MattJ: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/News_and_Articles_for_the_next_XMPP_Newsletter

  26. MattJ

    Where is this discoverable?

  27. jcbrand set the topic to

    Submissions for the newsletter: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/News_and_Articles_for_the_next_XMPP_Newsletter

  28. jcbrand

    MattJ: nowhere I guess 🙂

  29. jcbrand

    I guess it could be added to the newsletter itself

  30. jcbrand

    that would be a good first place

  31. MattJ

    Yes, agreed, that would be a good start

  32. MattJ

    There is much activity in prosody-modules that deserves to see more exposure

  33. MattJ

    I could add some things about new modules that people have made, or new features in existing modules

  34. jcbrand

    I have to say however, IMO people should write blog posts about what they're doing. Simply pointing to a tweet, github page or something like that isn't sufficient

  35. jcbrand

    Not that you're doing this, but that's happened a few times with submissions

  36. jcbrand

    So concerning Prosody modules, yes absolutely... where it falls flat is that people don't do writeups about their work

  37. jcbrand

    A "Prosody modules roundup" or "This week/month in Prosody" would be great 🙂

  38. jcbrand

    Same for any other project of course

  39. pep.

    I guess jabberfr could write a blog post for the recent mod_prometheus

  40. pep.

    Link Mauve, ^

  41. Link Mauve

    I started that.

  43. SouL

    Nice guys!

  44. SouL

    I like what I read!

  45. SouL


  46. pep.

    I would also like to start a blog for cluxia (cluxia.eu), soon-ish. To describe the work that we're busy not doing :)
