    Ge0rG: please put submissions in the relevant wiki page

  2. jc

    In the chat topic

  3. Ge0rG

    Oh, and there is also the current outrage about Slack closing down on Iranian and perceived-Iranian users. It would be really great if we had a simple-to-deploy all-in-one webchat docker

  4. Ge0rG

    But even without it, we should mention https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-46642760 or one of the many other sources

  5. Ge0rG

    (just added the link to the wiki page)

  6. jc

    Ge0rG: I'm working on and off on such a docker setup

  7. jc

    I'll put what I have on github soon

  8. jc

    About the Slack issue, I don't know what others think, but I personally only want to post info on xmpp and not about other chat platforms

  9. Ge0rG

    jc: I can see your point. We covered Slack in the past, but always in the context of XMPP, which is obviously not given here. Its upon the commteam to decide :)

  10. jc

    IMO, the way to make this a topic for the newsletter is for someone to do a blog post about the issue and how it relates to xmpp

  11. jc

    Then that post can link to the BBC article

  12. Ge0rG

    could it be a blog post on xmpp.org? ;)

  13. Ge0rG

    jc: actually, this sounds like a call for a "look how easy you can do decentralized xmpp" blog post, for which somebody developing a webchat client would be the most ideal candidate! 😁

  14. jc

    Ge0rG: if only we had that docker image ready for it...

  15. jc

    I'll make what I have available in github later today so that others can try it out and maybe help

  16. Ge0rG

    jc: we've still got one more week for the newsletter.

  17. Ge0rG

    I might have very limited testing capability between the holidays.

  18. jc

    I'm on holiday next week though. In principle I'm happy to write such a blog post but I doubt I'll have the time for it

  19. jc

    I've been having very interesting discussions around xmpp on the fediverse recently, which I could also turn into a blog post some time

  20. Ge0rG

    jc: do you have links?

  21. jc

    I'll have to look later, afk atm

  22. jc

    Ge0rG: this is one of various threads, perhaps 7 or so. https://mastodon.xyz/@jcbrand/101228757380507567

    You need to scroll up a bit to see the first msg in the thread
