    yes. but can simply PR if you want

  2. emus

    So, considering the newsletter break I am fine to add stuff to newsletter if it gets released until 2nd of Dec, so two more days. Sam then you have less stress, but please PR the news. wurstsalat

  3. emus

    but all these news should still go into the next zears newsletter anyway

    Done (https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/pull/1015).

  7. emus

    Many thanks

  8. Sam

    Sure. I *really* hate submitting PRs against markdown documents, it combines a lot of things I don't like, so maybe next month I'll just make a placeholder link or something that can be in the newsletter and will redirect to the actual thing when it's out. That would let me not have to do it early too as I prefer to write these on the last day of the month. Anyways, just thinking out loud.

  9. Sam

    It would also mean the link can update if we ever move these updates and not break, which is probably good because this isn't a *real* blog, and I'd like to have RSS eventually for them. Anyways, other suggestions welcome.

  10. emus

    I dont understand the latter. But what exactly makes life hard for you when PRing?

  11. wurstsalat

    Sam, I took your PR and added the content manually in order to put in into the right section. Github's online editor works good for this kind of contributions :)

  12. emus

    Yes, maybe just do it this way

  13. Sam

    I don't like GitHub's online editor much, or using their PR flow (which is sad because everyone has adopted it). It's normally not a big deal, but I also don't like editing hard-to-read markdown files with long lines that go on forever off the page, so in general I'd just prefer to use a pad or similar for writing personally

  14. Sam

    It's not a huge deal, just something I try to avoid and I missed it this month

  15. emus

    wurstsalat: thanks

  16. Sam

    Huh, apparently I still didn't understand the markdown file and I thought I put it immediately under the "libraries" header. Oh well, sorry; thanks for merging.

  17. emus

    Sam: next time yiu can also just place it here

  18. emus


  19. Sam

    Oh that's easy enough; thanks

    πŸ‘‹don't wanna be one of those whiners, I'm sure everyone here is beyond busy, just thought worth mentioning that the Twitter @xmpp has not posted the October newsletter yet and November is almost over

  21. wurstsalat

    emus is on it ;)

  22. emus

    singpolyma: yes thanks

  23. emus

    just a bit of patience. I will take measures to bring it up to dste even some of it might be already out-dated

  24. Martin

    Does the pad work for you?

  25. Martin

    Ah ok, works in my dirty browser. Seems firefox is configured too secure. :D
