    the dead line is... before the next newsletter? :)

  10. nyco

    so I'll work on the newsletter, the real one, the one we send by email, that lands in your inbox

  11. nyco

    meanwhile, how do we want to promote this issue on Twitter?

  12. nyco


  13. nyco

    my draft/proposition to you for today, like this afternoon: " The XMPP Newsletter is out! Read the latest news from the XMPP/Jabber communities: articles, events, software releases (servers, clients/apps, libraries)... [link] #social #instantmessaging #chat " what illustration?

  14. nyco

    maybe add a "Please share" or "Please Retweet"?

    I've just pushed "the button" on the newsletter... it is sending now to our 279 subscribers

  19. nyco

    as a subscriber, I have received it

  20. nyco

    please merge PR https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/pull/614 and deploy on our blog thanks all! it has been a real team effort, I am glad, it's hard but it works

  21. emus

    nyco: how do you want me to provide the translations?

  22. pep.

    emus, are you affiliated with jabber.de or sth btw?

  23. ralphm

    I have received it.

  24. emus

    pep.: no, why?

  25. pep.

    Just curious

  26. pep.

    Do you have a venue to expose the translation like we do with jabberfr maybe? I don't know if xmpp.org has multi-lang support(?)

  27. emus

    pep.: I dont know what you mean exactly. I have a github account if that help xD

  28. emus

    But I can also provide it as plain text in german and maybe spanish

  29. pep.

    emus: I don't know if xmpp.org can expose one article in multiple languages is what I'm saying

  30. pep.

    For the French translations we publish it on jabberfr.org

  31. emus

    Ahh, okay. now I understand

  32. emus

    I can ask the jabber.de guys if they are interested

  33. nyco

    that would be great

  34. nyco

    do they have a wiki or some tool to host the translation process?

  35. nyco


  36. emus

    no clue, I guess not. tell me what would be ideal for you

  37. emus

    I might can arrange

  38. nyco

    " The XMPP Newsletter is out! Read the latest news from the XMPP/Jabber communities: articles, events, software releases with servers, clients/apps, and services... [link] #social #instantmessaging #chat "

  39. emus

    nyco: Jabber.de said they re in 😃

  40. nyco

    es ist gut!

  41. nyco

    (that's all my German, sorry...)

  42. nyco

    so feel free, it's CC by-sa

  43. nyco

    please tell us when it's published so we can cover it on the next issue :)

  44. emus

    Sure, will check out! try to look if I can do it for spanish aswell

  45. nyco

    that would be awesome

  46. emus

    Läuft! 😉

    danke schön!

    Speaking of the wiki: Would you be open to use an etherpad or something else supporting markdown for collecting the newsletter topics? That would make it a lot easier to transfer it to pelican.

  50. SouL

    Yeah, I already raised that matter, we need something with history as well, maybe not to collect the topics but at least to write the newsletter

  51. SouL

    to allow easier collaboration

  54. debacle has joined

  55. nyco

    etherpad is cool, but text not markdown, and does not scale

  56. nyco

    probably link collection on the wiki, then copywriting on a markdown-friendly collab editor

  57. nyco

    but I'd rather have contributions, and then move to a new tool rather than people asking for a new tool and we migrate without contributions

  58. pep.

    nyco: "does not scale"?

  59. nyco


  60. pep.

    I've had etherpads pads with tens of users without any issues

  61. pep.

    For collecting links I'm sure it's good enough

  62. pep.

    And writing the newsletter

  63. nyco

    in terms of community management, you don't create an empty space, hoping for spontaneous generation of contributors you start with something that is not optimised, then contributors do their thing, then you optimise the processes and tools

  64. nyco

    I've had the opposite experience

  65. nyco

    for now, the newsletter is only a link collection... that's not what a newsletter is supposed to be last month we introduced the specs this month we introduced the license and credits what improvements do you want to bring next month?

  66. nyco

    btw, if the tools we choose are good, we may host the translations efforts as well

  67. nyco

    what other local Jabber communities can we ask for translations? jabber.pl (dead)? jabber.ru? jabber.at?

  68. nyco

    btw, for a collab text editor, it should not only support real markdown, but also inline images

  88. emus

    for example

  89. nyco

    what are you talking about?

  90. nyco

    newsletter or Twitter?

  91. nyco


  92. nyco

    that's the newsletter

  93. nyco

    and Twitter:

  94. nyco

    " The XMPP Newsletter is out! Read the latest news from the XMPP/Jabber communities: articles, events, software releases with servers, clients/apps, and services... https://xmpp.org/2019/10/newsletter-01-october/ #social #instantmessaging #chat "

  96. nyco


  97. nyco

    tell me if not cool

  98. emus

    nyco: your smtwitter stats you summed up in that spreadsheet. but is fine. is only for you

  99. nyco

    smtwitter what?

  100. nyco

    sorry, I don't get it

  101. nyco

    I summed nothing, I reported from https://analytics.twitter.com

  102. nyco

    the current number of followers are in realtime on:https://twitter.com/xmpp

  103. nyco


  104. emus

    Doesnt matter, forget it. I was referencing to the picture from 2:14pm

  105. nyco

    ok, but why do you want to report it on the metrics?

  106. emus

    No, I just thought could improve the overview. but its your thing, no need

  107. nyco

    it's not only for me, for usall

  108. emus


  109. nyco

    so I don't know he exact number of followers at any given time

  110. nyco

    it's not available

  111. nyco

    only the realtime, and it's on https://twitter.com/xmpp

  112. nyco

    so what would you want to copy-paste and why?

  113. emus

    😄 nyco, is fine. I just had a thought. Doesnt matter

    Apparently my Dino security analysis ( https://gultsch.de/dino_multiple.html ) didn't fall under this definition of relevancy :-/ > The submission must ideally be a blog or article about XMPP/Jabber and/or XMPP-based software (clients, servers, libs)

    As the newsletter is about communication, I think we might can create a "Call" section. something like: Developer XY from App XY is calling for voluntary Chinese translators... or on specific problems. What do you think about it? It might help to exchange knowledge through the network

  136. nyco

    I like it

  137. SouL

    Sounds good!

  138. winfried has left

  139. winfried has joined

  140. nyco

    how would we select the calls?

  141. SouL

    It is a bit complicated I think

  142. SouL

    If we had previous examples it would be easier.

  143. emus

    I rather think, we look what people send. if there are like > 5 Calls, we need a process

  144. emus

    if there are only barely people useing it, thats it

  145. emus

    I would go first for an announcement that we plan this opportunity
