    Al bit late, but here is se Tscherman release form January, the rest will follow https://www.jabber.de/xmpp-newsletter-frohes-neues-xmpp-jahr-14-januar-2020/

  2. emus

    Anyone wants to commit redactions for the February translations?

  3. emus


  4. emus


  5. emus

    Who posted that link: https://post.lurk.org/@pep/103736689790093261 it doesnt work anymore

  6. pep.


  7. pep.

    let me find you a public link for that last link

  8. pep.


  9. emus


  10. emus

    ah there was your name inside, havent seen it

  11. pep.


  12. pep.

    emus, do you know how to PR (and then edit) such a text btw? I think you can go ahead

  13. pep.

    I personally prefer to review when it's in PR form

  14. emus

    You meant to put it on github for PR?

  15. pep.


  16. pep.

    I'm currently reading the wiki page

  17. emus

    Basically yes.

  18. emus

    pep.: havent finished yet

  19. emus

    a few links are missing the formulation. will eat, then continue

  20. pep.

    I'm curious if we should poke organizers of Berlin to ask if the sprint is cancelled

  21. pep.

    no worries :)

  22. pep.

    I think they might announce that in a few days, but they have been talking about remote communication in the sprint channel for a few days

  23. emus

    I agree

  24. Martin

    What security scandal? The thing with the groupchat links?

  25. pep.

    yeah ~

  26. pep.

    I just retweeted stuff tbh

  27. pep.

    The EFF actually retweeted^Wretooted it later on

  28. pep.

    emus, missing matching ] around MongooseIM?

  29. pep.

    I don't especially like the thing around the 12 bytes, especially without mentioning why (well there is a link to inputmice's thread above but still..)

  30. pep.

    Monal is not even mentioned

  31. pep.

    But hmm, how does that even affect things etc.

  32. pep.

    There's a missing section on GSoC?

  33. Licaon_Kter

    pep.: there's a whole section for Monal it self, no enough blog posts there?

  34. pep.

    Ah right. A paragraph yeah :p

  35. Licaon_Kter

    About Monal...so many links but no mention of > 4.4 Feb 29, 2020

  36. pep.

    Also the wiki doesn't seem to like newlines (looking at XEPs)

  37. pep.

    emus, the "Call for Experience" and "Last Call" are actually over, so maybe the phrase "please answer the following questions" can be said differently

  38. emus

    I only used selected post for Monal. Many post are only short sentenece or do not really make sense to extra mention

  39. emus

    I will make a note

  40. Licaon_Kter

    emus: yeah, ok, but do add that latest is 4.4 or modify it in "4.3 and 4.4"

  41. emus


  42. emus

    but 4.4 ist in march specifically. I mean, I don't care really, because its 1st of March and makes sense already to put it there. However, I don't know how picky you are on this?

  43. emus


  44. pep.

    Ok re berlin, let's not say something definitive, just.. a sprint has been planned in berlin or sth

  45. emus

    Maybe I just remind to frequently check the situation on the sprint because of the situation with COV-ID19

  46. emus

    I cannot find this article anymore: https://hund.linuxkompis.se/2020/02/13/hur-du-kommer-igang-med-xmpp-pa-android.html

  47. emus

    pep. but there is a mentioning of the Sprints already

  48. pep.

    Right.. I feel a bit confused because we're already mid-march and a sprint has already happened and we've got more context :p

  49. pep.

    Ignore me

  50. emus

    We just gonna send it. I mentioned in the beginnnig that we are late. People will see that it already happened. However, for documentation it's good to just have it I think

  51. pep.


  52. pep.

    what about GSoC?

  53. emus


  54. pep.


  55. pep.

    I don't see anything on the wiki page

  56. emus

    pep. I will deleted you twitter lurk link as the information is already written via the official article

  57. pep.


  58. emus

    yes, I havent sumbit yet

  59. emus


  60. pep.

    link the mastodon link maybe then? Maybe we can stop promoting private platforms :p

  61. pep.

    let me find the EFF post

  62. pep.

    not eff, fsfe

  63. emus

    After a recent [https://www.dw.com/en/whatsapp-security-flaw-over-60000-groups-still-accessible-online/a-52543414 secruity flaw in WhatsApp groups], the FSFE recommends XMPP as [https://fsfe.org/news/2020/news-20200228-01.en.html decentral and open alternative amd solution]. The XSF tweeted about this already.

  64. emus

    Am I on the wrong track?

  65. pep.


  66. emus

    > Maybe we can stop promoting private platforms

  67. emus


  68. pep.


  69. pep.

    Twitter is quite far from what XMPP stands for

  70. pep.

    standard / extensible / decentralized

  71. emus

    Okay, I agree, but in that manner I prefer the primary source (not that Twitter is a decent one^^)

  72. pep.

    The primary source is the FSFE :p

  73. pep.

    link the article then yeah

  74. emus

    So is okay, as I did it?

  75. emus

    submitted in the wiki

  76. Licaon_Kter

    > 4.4 Feb 29, 2020 As seen in App store, yeah...blogpost is one day (or hours) later

  77. emus

    ok fine, I put it in already

  78. emus

    was that hund link from you aswell?

  79. Licaon_Kter


  80. emus

    > I cannot find this article anymore: > https://hund.linuxkompis.se/2020/02/13/hur-du-kommer-igang-med-xmpp-pa-android.html

  81. emus

    I would be really happy to put this as one of the pictures: https://image.spreadshirtmedia.net/image-server/v1/products/T814A1PA3795PT17X12Y10D138973805S23/views/1,width=650,height=650,appearanceId=1,backgroundColor=f6f6f6/design-of-15-years-of-jabberplorg-xmpp-server.jpg 😀 😀 😀

  82. Licaon_Kter

    emus: ummm strange Put this in place if not already in https://hund.linuxkompis.se/2020/02/18/hur-du-kommer-igang-med-conversations-pa-android.html

  83. Licaon_Kter

    There's a note on top, i guess they updated in

  84. Licaon_Kter

    There's a note on top, i guess they updated it

  85. emus

    Licaon_Kter: ok

  86. emus


  87. emus

    May you summarize whats it about for the readers?

  88. emus

    there are three possible pictures, we can put in the newsletter: https://discourse.igniterealtime.org/uploads/default/original/2X/8/8a20644093cdefad9f3d16e92a7a3d83c9a1fffe.png https://movim.eu/img/chatroom.png https://snikket.org/images/pixel_quite_black_portrait.png

  89. emus

    I suggest we decide on two of those

  90. emus

    Licaon_Kter: Is the article about how to setup conversations?

  91. pep.

    That's only my own opinion but I really can't do Pade :/ Too much colors, too much things

  92. emus

    Then you vote on the other both? 😀

  93. emus

    Yes, the screen hsot quality is not good

  94. pep.

    yeah I guess

  95. emus


  96. pep.

    plus that, the screenshot is really not good quality

  97. emus

    Would vote the same way

  98. emus

    Any other opinions?

  99. emus

    So @all, the editing is basically done. You can cross-check. Otherwise I will proceed to drop it to github

  100. pep.

    Right after this one I guess we should start March btw :p

  101. pep.

    Seeing how long we spent on this one

  102. emus

    😀 I'm already done for today 🙈️

  103. pep.


  104. Licaon_Kter


  105. emus

    We actually need to revise how to manage this 🤔️ I think including translating is many stupid copy paste etc and waste of resources

  106. emus

    pep. https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/pull/689

  107. emus

    The upload of the the pictures we should discuss tomorrow. Dunno how you want to have it implemented. Good night
