  15. peetah I have comments from readers concerning the opacity of the newsletter from simple XMPP users: I propose that we try to care wrapping each newsletter info in a user centric view, focusing on how such info may impact or not a reader that would be a simple user
  16. emus Interesting, I thought only people who know xmpp read it
  17. peetah since linuxfr is a generalist open source oriented website, it brings all kind of people, from the most basic user to the hardcore developer
  18. peetah not the same audience than xmmp.org
  19. debacle has left
  20. peetah do we have an idea of all the places where the newsletter is published ? I'm aware of emailing, xmpp.org, linuxfr.org, jabberfr.org , the german site where you publish the german translation ...
  21. peetah then it is advertised on social networks

  24. peetah did we do the social network thing for this last newsletter ?
  25. emus I cannot do the translastions atm 😐 Helpers welcome I think it is a good point to consider making extra statements for non-xmpp people. but I would not expand the efforts at the moment. I can imagine to put an "Introduction to XMPP"/Newcomer link, but I wonder if we have the ressources for this
  26. emus peetah: We basically publish on social networks, but I dont have the access to twitter mastadon
  27. Licaon_Kter peetah: not sure I get it, they care about clients right? _"this client had updates"_ Ok But you want to explain XEPs? Why?
  28. peetah they want the newsletter to clearly state, when possible, how such changes, whether in clients or in XEPs, could impact a simple XMPP user
  29. peetah a kind of "Too Complex; Did'nt read" or "XMPP for noobs" additional line for each info
  30. jcbrand has joined
  31. emus Was there a sentence or phrase as a typical example what thet dont get?
  32. peetah in previous newsletters, there were an abstract explaining what each cited XEP was about and I think we should put that back rather than just link to the official XEP
  33. emus I mean usually we describe changes to a software, that is usually "impact" to the users
  34. peetah in june 9th newsletter the part about <rtcp-mux/> for example
  35. emus Okay, but I think this passage is for developers. It has few impact to users normally I think
  36. peetah it's here for expert to understand, but does it have any impact for a simple user
  37. peetah it is not stated anywhere
  38. Licaon_Kter XEPs don't have an impact until implemented, when they are... see "Clients" section.
  39. emus I would be okay to add a sentence saying what the section is for
  40. peetah Licaon_Kter: we all know that in this room, but we are talking from a simple user perspective here
  41. Licaon_Kter You keep saying "simple user" but asking for stuff not meant for that user.
  42. peetah for these users who may care to expand their understanding of the XMPP environment, it is a good idea to fill this gap in the newsletter
  43. debacle has left
  44. Licaon_Kter peetah: no, they should RTFM for the backstory...
  45. Licaon_Kter Why you'd use the newsletter for what xmpp.org (should) cover?
  46. Licaon_Kter Also, the introduction section for a XEP has info too.
  47. peetah because the newsletter is a communication tool to attract more people who could understand and contribute to XMPP
  48. Licaon_Kter But simple users can't YET understand.p.
  49. peetah if you don't make the effort to explain, they won't
  50. emus I see the problem, I wonder if the newsletter is the correct place for those people 🤔
  51. emus Actually the XSF rather refuses to focus on endusers (which is not my personal view)
  52. Licaon_Kter > Actually the XSF rather refuses to focus on endusers (which is not my personal view) That's another story....solved...not on the newsletter :)

  74. peetah is there text stating clearly what is the goal and the target audience of the XMPP newsletter ?
  75. emus No, but sofar the target are more developers or inside people, that those who are new to the network. (as said not my opinion). But I also dont see how we can manage newcomers with a newsletter and also how if we talk about XEPs

  77. peetah here what I propose: I'll try to work something around the each news added for the next newsletter, and let's discuss how it goes then so that we decide if it is kept or not
