    the wiki page is frozen now, I've passed on git: https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/pull/602

  10. Nÿco

    please review

  11. Nÿco

    meanwhile, I am waiting for JC to give me access to TinyLetter

  12. Nÿco

    if possible, I want to publish it on Tuesday 3rd

  13. Nÿco

    pep, are you on github, so I assign you the review as well?

  14. SouL

    I'll check later after work, thank you Nÿco :D

  15. Nÿco


  16. Nÿco

    SouL what's your github handle?

  17. SouL


  18. pep.

    Nÿco: ppjet6. I'm not available until later in the afternoon though

  19. debacle has left

  20. Nÿco

    thx, no hurry :)

  21. Nÿco

    oops, can't find you...

    hey commTeam, since we launched the newsletter, until now, I have only collected links on the wiki, sometimes just done some very basic copywriting...

  26. Nÿco

    please I used to edit the XMPP Roundup, I took over stpeter then

  27. Nÿco

    the difference between the times of the roundup and the newsletter is the maturity of use of social media

  28. Nÿco

    and I am a bit surprised that we - as a community - use social media pretty badly

  29. Nÿco

    so we could write a short kind of guide for us all

  30. Nÿco

    how to write a post: text, image, hashtags, link

  31. Nÿco

    how to schedule posts: buffer, tweetdeck, hootsuite, etc.

  32. Nÿco

    how to analyses your analytics (funnels, acquisition, etc.)

  33. Nÿco

    all the best practices are already available everywhere online, it's just a matter of shaping it for us all

  34. Nÿco

    btw, is the team member list correct? https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/CommTeam#Team_members

  35. Nÿco

    hmmm... not the same: https://xmpp.org/about/xsf/comm-team.html

  36. SouL

    Yeah, that list was made two summits ago :D

  37. SouL

    Probably Daniel has not been active

  38. SouL

    I haven't seen him around here

  39. SouL

    In terms of activity, the one on the website is quite accurate

  40. Nÿco

    ok, thx

  41. Nÿco

    tbh, I am not around here often...

  42. Nÿco

    maybe we should recruit?

  43. SouL

    I think we are enough for what we do right now

  44. SouL

    It depends on the objectives :D

  45. jcbrand

    Nÿco: I sent you the credentials yesterday already. In chat via OMEMO

  46. Nÿco

    that's the problem: wrong key

  47. Nÿco

    can't read it

  48. jcbrand

    I sent them again

  49. Nÿco

    thx a lot, it works, I'm playing with the interface in order to familiarise now, I'll wait for more reviews before really posting

  50. Nÿco

    jcbrand why did you choose tinyletter over others?

  51. Nÿco

    I did that: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Basic_communication_guide_for_XMPP_techies

    Nÿco: Ppjet6 with a caps then? I should also be in the xsf group somewhere

  55. Nÿco

    arg, I can't find you... :'(

  56. jcbrand

    > jcbrand why did you choose tinyletter over others? I don't remember, heard good things about them

  57. Nÿco

    ok, good enough :)

  61. Nÿco

    wow, I followed you

  62. Nÿco

    the GitHub's search engine sucks

  63. ralphm

    Huh? https://github.com/search?q=maxime+buquet&type=Users

  64. Nÿco

    for some reason, I can't add you

  65. Nÿco


  66. Nÿco

    but I can you can do a review

  67. ralphm

    Oh, that's probably because pep isn't part of the team

  68. pep.


  69. Nÿco

    I guessed that, can you please add him?

  70. ralphm

    I can address that after Board

  71. Nÿco


  72. Nÿco

    you have 5 min, you can do it now :)

  73. pep.

    I was actually wondering if it made sense to merge both teams tbh

  74. Nÿco


  75. pep.

    Commteam and scam

  76. Nÿco

    that's a github team

  77. pep.


  78. pep.


  79. Nÿco

    oh, commteam and scam have some stuff in common, indeed

  80. pep.

    Just a related thought

  81. Nÿco

    I think I kind of agree...

  82. ralphm

    Well, they are separate work teams in the XSF, and I agree they should work together, but merging them doesn't feel like the best of ideas

  83. Nÿco

    why not?

  84. pep.

    There's a slight nuance but both have more or less the same goal, i.e., outreach. Plus it's not like we had many active people..

  85. nyco has joined

  86. Nÿco

    why not?

  87. Nÿco

    why not?

  88. Nÿco

    why not?

  89. nyco


  90. ralphm

    Because, e.g. I like to help out with meetups, etc, and not (currently) with writing newsletters or other types of communication

  91. ralphm


  92. nyco

    Movim fell down

  93. nyco

    sorry for the multiple attempts

  94. pep.

    ralphm: who says you have to do everything

  95. nyco

    actually, no one in scam helps on meetups organisation as far as I know

  96. ralphm

    nyco: why did we add a new person recently then?

  97. pep.

    nyco: ??

  98. ralphm

    Also, I've been working on the Summit again

  99. pep.

    ralphm: are you efforts public?

  100. ralphm

    I sent a mail on the dates

  101. pep.


  102. ralphm

    And there's a separate private discussion on the FOSDEM devroom

  103. pep.

    Ah, I wasn't aware of that

  104. pep.


  105. ralphm

    which part of "private discussion" was unclear?

  106. pep.

    Ok so there's no way to help even, better :)

  107. pep.

    I love these small elitists groups

  108. pep.

    I love these small elitist groups

  109. ralphm

    No need for now, at least

  110. ralphm

    Mostly handled by the realtime communications people anyway

  111. ralphm

    For this team, though, I would be interested in having some good handout and other presentational material

  112. ralphm

    Maybe a pull-up banner

  113. pep.

    Btw, Matrix appeared as "Matrix.org" on the stand map, would it be possible for XMPP to also appear on that map, and not just "realtime lounge". Or make matrix go in there as well

  114. ralphm

    I'll think about that. We've gone as Realtime Lounge for a couple of years now, and in 2018 they were part of it, and this year they were separate.

  115. ralphm

    I also talked to organizers on a different location / setup

  116. pep.

    Right, it's really not visible in that corner

  117. ralphm

    Well, also very crowded

  118. ralphm

    When we started with the Lounge, there were almost half the number of stands in total

  119. pep.

    Maybe someday fosdem will change venues :x

  120. pep.

    Or get a voucher system like CCC or something

  121. ralphm

    I don't know CCC's setup

  122. ralphm

    But ULB is great in that it is free

  123. pep.

    Not sure any of this is beneficial to fosdem, but it's really crowded and doesn't really make me want to go

  124. nyco has left

  125. pep.

    “Nÿco: actually, no one in scam helps on meetups organisation as far as I know“ what did this mean btw

  126. ralphm

    Sometime he misfires :-D

  127. pep.

    Because we've been handling froscon and Camp lately, Daniel, Dino people and me for froscon, and dino, mathieui and me for Camp

  128. pep.

    And there's more coming

  129. pep.

    Ah maybe he's not connected

  130. Nÿco

    meetups organisers are not part of SCAM team

  131. pep.

    https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Meetups these?

  132. pep.

    Is this strictly required? We can help setting them up, we should, (also proposing content? Etc.), but we don't especially have to take part?

  133. pep.

    They don't have to join either? I'd prefer to let them do whatever they want, make the entry easy, and then only if they're interested they can join (not sure what that would bring them though)

  134. pep.

    Often these grow organically, it just happens. I'd like for them to contacts us and ask for help but at think by this point it's either already happening, or dead

  135. pep.

  136. pep.

    I have been trying to push people here and there though to start again, in Paris for example

  137. pep.

    I can poke other people in different places maybe

  138. ralphm

    Nÿco: the point I tried to make is that we added pep. to SCAM specifically for his work on meetups.

  139. ralphm

    Maybe you weren't in that meeting.

  140. pep.

    That was at the summit

  141. pep.

    Though, terminology might be confusing here. What I try to organise is generally called "sprints". I believe what's called "meetup" is more user oriented

  142. pep.

    Only the target is different but that's already a significant change :p

  143. ralphm

    Yeah, I suppose we could rename to SCAMS, but that seems superfluous.

  144. pep.

    Yeah that's fine
