Sam WhitedI feel like I've asked this before, but for people who aren't in this room how do they submit stuff to the newsletter? I couldn't remember so I went to the website and an old newsletter and don't see it mentioned
Sam WhitedMaybe we can include a link at the bottom of the newsletter each week and on the newsletter page of the website?
Licaon_KterSam Whited: see room subject/title
Licaon_Kteremus: is that pad actual?
Sam WhitedI can't see the room subject or title
Sam WhitedI mean, there might be a way, but I have no idea how to do that in this client
Sam Whitedoh wait, I see it in the bottom bar, but it cuts off (presumably right before the url, it ends in "here"
Licaon_KterOh, better create an issue :))
Sam WhitedIt's pretty much abandonware as far as I can tell, there's no point
Sam WhitedAlthough I'm also sure there's a way, I just don't know it.
Sam WhitedSo the answer is we have a pad, which is good: can we link that on the webpage/in the newsletter?
Sam WhitedNot everyone will be in this room
Sam WhitedAlthough I guess this changes every month, so maybe that would be annoying. Maybe we could make a submission form or something? It's hard to figure out how to submit right now.
Licaon_KterThe last newsletter has this info at the end
Licaon_KterAnd the previous one had it too...
wurstsalatSam Whited, the pad is the current one (and will be cleared at submission deadline)
Sam Whitedhmm, I swear I just looked at the last one
wurstsalateverything from the pad then goes to a github PR
wurstsalatemus, is there a PR yet? :)
Sam WhitedI still don't see it
Sam Whitedoh weird, no, there it is, somehow it stopped scrolling before then
Licaon_Kter"Help us blah blah"
Sam WhitedI have a stupid request then, can it include the word "submission" or "submissions?" I know that sounds dumb, but reading this it still sounds like helping put the newsletter together instead of me just submitting a single link
Sam WhitedAlso if we could do the same and link it from https://xmpp.org/newsletter.html it would probably be helpful
wurstsalatSam Whited, good ideas!

Maybe Holger knows
Licaon_KterWe had a news with a release last year :)
Sam WhitedOh, fair, I only say that because I've had the same weird race condition where rooms won't re-join for years and it never got fixed, maybe other stuff is being looked at
Licaon_KterPoezio and Profanity not good enough yet?
Sam WhitedI don't especially care for their UI
Sam WhitedJust personal preference; the vertical sidebar makes it a lot easier to scroll through a large roster and I'm willing to give up nice modern features like MAM (though also I desperately want that) for vim keybindings
Sam WhitedI prefer the vertical roster in the sidebar and vim keybindings
emuswurstsalat: No, will try by tonight - sorry everyone ☺ Had some harsh weeks 😩
Sam Whited: Actually Im wondering. We link a lot. The only thing you were right that the new draft is not online yet.
There are three ways to contribute:
- drop it here in MUC
- drop it in the pad https://yopad.eu/p/xmpp-newsletter-365days (we just erase the old content to keep the same link)
- make a PR (yes, not open yet) It will usually appear here, if you want to keep a consistent link: https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/milestone/3
Of course, we highly appreciate if one preformulates something.
If you can cross check the general formulations in the newsletter from a native perspective we also would be very happy!
Sam Whitedoops, that was weird, don't know where that second message came from. I think that was another mcabber bug.
emusMcabber - Im happy we have many clients but I wonder why people use it exactly?
emusSam Whited: I will add the pad to the website aswell
Sam Whitedemus: maybe just change that first sentence to "Submissions may be made to [this pad], or the current issue in the [XSF GitHub repository]" and add that same thing to the website?
DebXWoodyI started to implement vim as message editor for profanity 😁
