  34. MattJ Licaon_Kter, sorry, 4th/5th time of what?
  35. Licaon_Kter Snikket announced :) or is it that it wasn't announced "on that site" yet? :)
  36. MattJ Your link is the first announcement I ever wrote, over 12 months ago
  37. Licaon_Kter Oh, nvm me....I read April but the wrong year...sorry
  38. Licaon_Kter This was linked from a random Fedi post
  39. MattJ As for Snikket iOS, yeah, I'd have liked it to be out sooner
  40. Licaon_Kter Where's the holdup? Tigase, you or Apple?
  41. MattJ We're finalizing the work that's required before release
  42. MattJ A bit of everything (except for Apple)
  43. MattJ The plan was always to do the work in two halves (the first was OMEMO and some other stuff), the second half of the work hasn't happened yet
  44. MattJ It was going to be decided partly based on feedback from the beta testers, which has now happened
  45. intosi has left
  46. Licaon_Kter You have 2-3 months of beta iirc What's the second part? Is Push solved? MUC push?
  47. MattJ and it will include a chunk of UX work, which is harder to specify to Tigase than "Implement OMEMO for MUC, kthx"
  48. Licaon_Kter _(sorry to OT)_
  49. MattJ Push is already solved, MUC push is 95% there - I've just been too busy to fix the remaining 5% (which would happen server-side)
  50. MattJ It will be fixed before the release
  51. MattJ and yeah, just realised this isn't the Snikket MUC... just woke up :)
  52. Licaon_Kter 👍

  109. edhelas no no, it's just to inform you, might help us to communicate and prepare things if we have some people that wants to migrate to other solutions
  110. Sam Might be worth someone here responding to: https://drewdevault.com/2021/04/07/The-next-chat-app.html
  111. Sam He *hates* XMPP IIRC so he didn't even mention it, but it mostly meets all the requirements he's talking about.

  116. emus (XSF Com. Team) Well if he hates XMPP and does not even mention it knowingly, how should we convince him=
  117. emus (XSF Com. Team) ?
  118. Sam Yah, I don't know, that's why I bring it up here. It might not be about convincing him personally, but convincing others in the comments too.
  119. Sam Or maybe it's not worth it because he'll just get mad and shut down the conversation, I really don't know.
  120. emus (XSF Com. Team) (Our tweet for the Newsletter actually: https://nitter.nixnet.services/xmpp/status/1379503198352900102#m many thanks to whom it posted!)
  121. emus (XSF Com. Team) Sam, if you want we can try to update the website and point out those arguments?
  122. Sam I really don't know what's best, I just saw the post and was thinking out loud to see if others had any ideas :)
  123. Sam Maybe our own blog post would be a good idea? I could try to write something up this weekend

  128. Licaon_Kter @sir hates anything not IRC, then again XMPP (biboumi actually) is a good IRC citizen I heard, his Matrix complaints are against their EEE strategy that forces broken bridges onto IRC (and XMPP for that matter)
  129. edhelas has joined
  130. Licaon_Kter > Sam, if you want we can try to update the website and point out those arguments? Sounds more adequate, in the myths section?
  131. Sam I don't think he really says anything about XMPP that would work in the myths section, but positioning XMPP as a thing to use instead of signal seems good (not that we can actually compete at all in terms of usability, but using this bitcoin thing as a way to drum up support for XMPP could be good)
  132. intosi has left
  133. nicola > (Our tweet for the Newsletter actually: https://nitter.nixnet.services/xmpp/status/1379503198352900102#m many thanks to whom it posted!) Tks, already RT and Twitted mentioning @xmpp :-)
  134. Licaon_Kter Sam: yes, but this needs a more general feel than being _a reaction_ to every blog post somewhere
  135. Sam Licaon_Kter: yah, I was thinking it could be a thing about how XMPP wouldn't have some of the same problems as signal? Signal got a huge boost when whatsapp changed its TOS recently, maybe we could do the same thing and catch some of the people bailing from signal?
  136. Sam I dunno, maybe I'll just try to write something this weekend, I don't know if it really needs a response or not though.

  140. Licaon_Kter Sam: I feel we already answered back in January... https://xmpp.org/2021/01/instant-messaging-its-not-about-the-app/
  141. Licaon_Kter Sam: I feel XMPP already answered back in January... https://xmpp.org/2021/01/instant-messaging-its-not-about-the-app/
  142. Sam I'm thinking a current reaction to the signal thing, or maybe just a reply to point people at XMPP to the specific post I linked about it would be better.
  143. Sam Better than just having an older post I mean. We shoudl always be generating content.
  144. anubis has joined
  145. Licaon_Kter He closed his Fedi, if you find how to access that mailing list used for blog reaction, see if any XMPP answers too
  146. intosi has left
  147. Sam yah, I'll keep an eye on it or possibly respond at some point.

  151. Sam If anyone has time to proof read, this is a first draft of a reply to that article just to get his list followers thinking about it: https://gist.github.com/SamWhited/bd4ae0c6b5c406f1d40593280a23066f
  152. Sam I think it might also be reasonable to have a blog post specifically targeting the Signal changes, but that can come later.

  154. Licaon_Kter LGTM
  155. Sam Cool, calling it "good enough" then since it's just a quick reply to a post :)

  160. Sam Cue a flood of people replying with how stupid this is, but at least I put XMPP out there as an option :)

  169. emus (XSF Com. Team) Hey Sam, thanks for the effort! I actually got you response wrong, as I thought you wanted to write an entire blog post to this. So such a reply is fine of course! Please ignore people nothing else to do than blameing you rpost
  170. Sam emus (XSF Com. Team): oh no, I want to do both :) a blog post would more be targeted at the signal thing, not just this post
  171. emus (XSF Com. Team) Actually we already covered this with the previous blog post, as its actually the same issue
  172. emus (XSF Com. Team) I would prefer to adjust the myth page or so
  173. emus (XSF Com. Team) --> anyway, if you would like to write a blog post, is fine
  174. emus (XSF Com. Team) I support it (unfortunately I dont have time or a big idea what to write)
  175. emus (XSF Com. Team) how can one read the entire thread on this page? 😀
  176. intosi has joined
  177. Sam I agree the topic is covered, I just think it helps to respond directly to the signal one and position ourselves as an alternative.
  178. Sam I think the thread will appear on that page when there are any other replies :)
  179. Martin has left
  180. emus (XSF Com. Team) ok, I was looking for the flood of people you mentioned
  181. Martin has joined
  182. Sam Oh no, that was in anticipation of tons of angry messages about how bad XMPP is :)
  183. Sam I don't know how many people actually follow this list
  184. Sam I just know this guy has a pretty big following in general
  185. emus (XSF Com. Team) ah ok
  186. emus (XSF Com. Team) who is he?
  187. Sam Sourcehut, KnightOS, Gemini, etc. he just makes a bunch of random small projects that have kind of a cult status
  188. Sam Oh, and he wrote large chunks of Wayland
