    Thank you. I can translate the newsletter in Italian if you agree and there is the needing. It’s a matter of time …. unfortunately.

  2. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Hey nicola, I would be very happy if you would like to do that. Do you have a place to publish it?

  4. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    nicola: yes is fine

  5. nicola

    Ok, I start working

  6. emus (XSF Com. Team)

  8. nicola

    Here is the Italian translation of the XMPP March Newsletter: https://www.nicfab.it/la-newsletter-xmpp-di-marzo-2021-versione-italiana/ Regarding the formatting, it depends on the css. I tried to maintain the same style as the international. I hope you enjoy it.

    Β« And we are on YouTube now! Β» is it really a improvement for federations ?

  10. wurstsalat

    Raising attention is, certainly.

  11. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    nicola: great, can you add this to the pad?

  12. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    anubis: Yes, I see your point. But we have few options to run this here as a full-stack opensource communication team and have to stick to the limited ressources we have πŸ™

  13. nicola

    > nicola: great, can you add this to the pad? What pad, sorry?

  14. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    nicola: see the MUC description. Does you client open it?

  15. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    nicola: see the MUC description. Does you client show it?

  16. nicola

    > nicola: see the MUC description. Does you client show it? I hope to have done all correctly. Please, let me know

    emus (XSF Com. Team), I understand you can reach more people through YouTube, but you should at least host the videos in // on a PeerTube instance (https://tube.privacytools.io/videos/trending for instance ?) and recommend to use PeerTube. If not, you are going to empower the GAFAM network...

  19. Sam

    anubis: are you volunteering to set one up or find a good one and maintain the channel or find a way to sync it with YouTube?

  20. Sam

    Because we've been over this, and that's a lot harder than just using YouTube. I'd love to do it too, but we can't just take on extra work for the relatively few people who are using PeerTube.

  21. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Yes, this ^

  24. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Sure. but the issue is not that we wont do it because of few people, but because of service quality + ressources

  25. anubis

    Sam, well, I'm not an expert in that field, but if you have some place somewhere I can give a try; do you have a test server for this ?

  26. anubis

    > because of service quality should we already expect thousand of views ? :p

  27. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Maybe πŸ˜›

  28. Sam

    anubis: no, sorry. Lack of resources os part of the problem.

  29. Sam

    An existing instance would probably be best.

  30. anubis

    hm, i actually fear that this would not behave like a channel concept (from my understanding; gathering relevant videos related to xmpp versus listing all videos with xmpp tag)

  31. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    anubis: you mean for the youtube channel?

  32. Sam

    All we need is a place to upload videos, not a place to gather existing videos (although we could do that in a playlist or something too)

  33. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Sam: Thats what I was recommending for the Office hours

  34. Sam

    emus (XSF Com. Team): what do you mean?

  35. Sam

    Oh, a playlist of just office hours? Yah, I made that

  39. vanitasvitae

    Sam, I updated the slides

  40. vanitasvitae

    Can you drop the new ones into the BBB?

  41. Sam

    vanitasvitae: will do; thanks

  42. vanitasvitae


  43. Sam

    I may not be able to make it into the room early today to check audio and the like due to a conflicting meeting, so I'll set it to allow anyone to start it about 30 minutes before hand in case you want to join and test anything

  44. Sam

    (although I'll probably get out of my meeting in plenty of time, but you never know, it may run long)

  45. Sam

    Quick update, I moved the checklist for hosts to https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Office_Hours_Checklist in case anyone else ends up doing it later (for now I'll just keep doing it and this is more for my reference, but I wanted to share what I've been doing)

  46. Sam

    vanitasvitae: can you link me to the slides again?

  47. Sam

    Oh, or is it the same link?

  48. vanitasvitae


  49. vanitasvitae

    yeah the same link

  50. Sam

    Updated. Thanks

  51. Sam

    vanitasvitae: your mastodon post says "about half an hour", but it's at 1400 UTC which is in an hour and a half

  52. Sam

    1600 UTC, I mean

  53. vanitasvitae

    oh wait, summer time πŸ˜€

  54. Sam

    *whew* I was worried I put something down wrong on the calendar :)

  55. vanitasvitae


  56. vanitasvitae

    my bad πŸ˜€

  57. vanitasvitae

    quickly deleted the post

  58. vanitasvitae

    well, its an additional hour of nervous waiting then πŸ˜›

  59. Sam

    Heh, I know that feel. Don't worry, it'll be great!

  60. Sam

    And if it's not, the punishment is only excommunication from the XSF and all internet related activities, so no pressure.

  61. vanitasvitae

    Fixed it

  64. anubis

    (i'll have more time in the next 2 weeks to make some try regarding PeerTube; in between, are all your videos under a libre license ? I cannot see the license)

  65. Sam

    Both of the current videos are CC-BY

  66. Jeybe

    anubis: to get you up to speed, https://tilvids.com came up as instance suggestion, too

  67. vanitasvitae

    Sam: I guess the talk was okay enough to be published ;)

  68. Sam

    vanitasvitae: I was just writing a message to ask :) thanks! That really was useful and I think it will be very helpful for people who couldn't be here

  69. Sam

    Are you okay with CC-BY for the license?

  70. vanitasvitae

    Sure :)

  71. Sam

    Thanks; it takes ages for the render to finish but once it does I'll go back and trim out some silence between questions and what not and then upload and put the link in the schedule

  72. vanitasvitae


  73. Martin

    That'S great. I didn't see it, as I'm on a business trip.

  75. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Guess we have our first YT Follower! πŸ’ΉπŸ’²

  76. anubis

    (as additional advantage to migrate to PeerTube, we could make good use of https://github.com/JohnXLivingston/peertube-plugin-livechat )

    For the 4th or 5th time? https://blog.prosody.im/introducing-snikket/ MattJ: reading in the MUC back in January, iOS was like days or a week away, omemo groups live, default settings tweaked, banner colour almost mustardy.... but now 3 months later and I thought I missed the release message, yet, there's still none? :(

  80. vanitasvitae

    Sam: nice :)
