vanitasvitaeThe heise article got updated. The recommendation is for Cisco Jabber now.
vanitasvitaeMaybe @xmpp could issue a statement/recommendation towards open implementations?
emusvanitasvitae: please Nÿco
But as always, stay polite & progressive
emuswe should mention this aswell in the newsletter?
vanitasvitaeMaybe something along the lines of "While we appreciate the EU Parliament taking control over their communications by using a self-hosted solution (Cisco Jabber is self hosted right?), we ask why not go a step further and chose a truely open system based on a truely open standard like XMPP?" with a link to xmpp.org's server software page plus maybe a link that clarifies the differences between Cisco Jabber and XMPP.
vanitasvitaeAnd maybe replace "we ask why not" with "we encourage them to".
Martinvanitasvitae: Is there something official describing the differences?
vanitasvitaeAFAIK Holger once wrote something (unofficial?) but there should be more resources.
emus> AFAIK Holger once wrote something (unofficial?) but there should be more resources.
yep, if they really continue about that topic, the XSF CommTeam (!) should provide some more resources
pep.vanitasvitae, technically, while I'm not especially happy with Cisco Jabber, we can probably still federate right?
pep.But yeah they wouldn't have the same disparate^Wawesome experience as most XMPP users experience nowadays :)

emusI think they (and others) should know what is what
