    Hello there, here is the french translation of the newsletter : https://news.jabberfr.org/2021/06/lettre-dinformation-xmpp-de-mai-2021 & https://linuxfr.org/news/lettre-d-information-xmpp-de-mai-2021-8c2e986d-e880-4f5b-9a9c-73246142eab5 (next time I'll pay attention to the permalink, the linuxfr one seems a bit long)

    Yeah that 'uid' makes the URL a bit uncool. 😂

  4. Martin

    What site generator does this?

  5. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    neox: Thank you very much guys!

    https://github.com/mellium/fediverse-xmpp-onboarding Sam wrote a tool for easy xmpp onboarding using mastodon servers

  7. Sam

    o/ it's really just an example to try and facilitate discussion on the mailing list thread (and because someone posted a similar tool for Matrix a few days ago). Nothing actually supports this protoxep yet.

    No Readme, what does it do? Sam

  9. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    coule be interesting to combine with xmpp providers

  10. Sam

    Licaon_Kter: the user can self-provision an XMPP account by authenticating with an existing mastodon account. This authorizes them to use IBR on the XMPP server. There is no requirement for the XMPP server and the web service that generates the invite to be able to communicate.

  11. Sam

    The idea being that a mastodon community can have an associated chat server and users can self-provision accounts without asking an admin (and without the admin having to tie the XMPP server and the mastodon instance to the same backend or something)

  12. Sam

    I mean, the idea is to just be an example of one area where the new protoxep is useful, this probably isn't something you'd want to actually use.

    This is the 401+379 ?

  16. Licaon_Kter

    This is the 401+379 invite workflow?

  17. Sam

    Yes, using the new protoxep that allows generating invites with a shared secret (instead of having to have an admin account on the server): https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1068

  18. Sam

    Discussion is happening in jdev@ if you're interested.

  19. Licaon_Kter

    Thanks, but well over my head :)

    Sam: cannot download the image

  21. emus (XSF Com. Team)

    Sam: have you seen the xmpp providers project, too?

  22. Sam

    emus (XSF Com. Team): I don't think so, what's that?
