  193. Sam The lemmy idea was accepted! MattJ: can we setup that subdomain of xmpp.net to use? Any ideas for what? I was thinking "communities." but that's rather long too, maybe something else?
  194. singpolyma Sam: c.? l.?
  195. Sam I feel like no one will know what the single letter means and it will be confusing, but maybe others feel differently?
  196. adiaholic has left
  197. singpolyma IMO people follow links/searches and don't know what URLs mean anyway, unless they're family techy in which case the brevity wins, but 🤷‍♂️
  198. MattJ 'news' is shorter, though maybe not entirely accurate
  199. singpolyma poststuffabout.
  200. MattJ Also, noting that xmpp.net is apparently contentious, there are almost certainly other domains around the community that we could use as well
  201. adiaholic has joined
  202. singpolyma getyourunofficiallemmyhere.
  203. MattJ I can offer subdomains of goxmpp.com, superxmpp.com, and I'm sure there would be no problem with a jabber.network subdomain, and there are some joinxmpp.* ones around I think
  204. emus please no news
  205. Sam xmpp.net seemed like a good one to me but if anyone else thinks something else would be better I'm game for it
  206. Sam It's not social networking in the sense that I generally think of when someone says "social network", but maybe social.xmpp.net (or whatever domain) would be good?
  207. emus maybe call it what it is. forums? social is conotated with news and twitter etc?
  208. Sam I feel like forums are similar but different too though
  209. Sam I mean, they're the same in every meaningful way, but reddit/lemmy have a slightly different focus, plus the federated aspect? I can't quite put my finger on it, maybe I'm just wrong.
  210. adiaholic has left
  211. Sam At least two others in the list of public instances are using "forum."
  212. Sam most of the ones using a subdomain are just using "lemmy." so maybe that's fine
  213. Sam forum.xmpp.net, lemmy.xmpp.net, social.xmpp.net? Any seems fine to me.
  214. adiaholic has joined
  215. emus I think maybe communities could also work best. then its clear that this is not == XMPP but many differnet actors
  216. TheCoffeMaker has joined
  217. Sam community.xmpp.net sounds good to me, shall we just go with that?
  218. emus and I personally dont care with the name
  219. emus length
  220. Sam eg. community.xmpp.net/c/newsletter could be a thing, if we wanted!
  221. MattJ community gets my vote, I think
  222. Licaon_Kter +1
  223. Sam It fits in nicely with the Lemmy terminology (which calls sub-forums "communities" I think) anyways, so that's perfect.
  224. Sam MattJ: can you point community.xmpp.net at 51.38.185.90 in that case and I'll get the process started?
  225. adiaholic has left
  226. Link Mauve It might conflict a bit with Movim’s notion of communities, which is very much an XMPP concept.
  227. Sam Too late, bike shed over :)
  228. Sam We already decided to paint it red.
  229. Link Mauve Just a datapoint, I have no opinion on that.
  230. Sam Jokes aside, I don't know about that, what does movim call communities?
  231. adiaholic has joined
  232. singpolyma Movim uses communities for multi-author pubsub. So it's actually pretty close to the same thing
  233. MattJ Sam, I've added the record, but one of the nameservers for the zone seems to be lagging. I'll ping the owner.
  234. Sam Thanks

  237. emus and thats also what I meant by requesting to compare what we have before we deploy
  238. Sam That was a joke, if it actually conflicts with something we shouldn't name it that, but I don't think it actually does or will be confusing in this case.
  239. Link Mauve Yeah me neither.
  240. Link Mauve We just decide to use a tool from another protocol, because tools using our protocol don’t have the UI/UX for it. :)
  241. adiaholic has left
  242. emus Its a community thing. so the note is: deploy what you want to deploy... (and increase fragmentation 👍)
  243. adiaholic has joined
  244. MattJ Sheesh, I don't think this is worth getting so worked up over. Maybe you could try offering some constructive suggestions instead of just saying how much you dislike Sam's initiative?
  245. MattJ The alternative on the table was: approximately nothing

  251. emus Well, my constructive suggestion was - great lets do it, but compare the systems and what we want to deploy (please and twice). But that was not wanted to be heard and now people come and wonder why not another system... And I also understood its a non XSF thing, so why is it being discussed here? I am really disatisifed with this process because in the end we will need to take care on it etc... So, I dont see why my dissatisfaction is not valid...
  252. Licaon_Kter :)
  253. Sam I'm just doing a personal project. You don't have to join, and you can always go compare systems and make something official later. This isn't a process or an XSF thing. I only mentioned it here because I thought people in the comms room would be interested.
  254. Sam Your dissatisfaction is fine, it's the way you're expressing it that's a bit offputting.
  255. Sam Although it's also a bit weird that you're mad that someone in the XMPP community is trying to setup a new thing. I don't recall anyone getting mad when someone setup r/xmpp, or created a movim channel about XMPP, or did a video chat thing for office hours, etc.
  256. Sam Anyways, it's not worth discussing, I can remove chat about it from this channel if you'd like, I just thought the comms team might be interested.
  257. Link Mauve I do remember people getting mad at who setup /r/xmpp. :p
  258. Sam Heh, fair; I suspect I can guess.
  259. Link Mauve I’m sure you can.
  260. Sam (TBF to them, I haven't noticed any of their time sucking behavior over there; they just post a lot of links, which is the point of reddit)

  265. emus Sam: Yes understood you are doing a personal project, but I wonder how many will understand its Sam's personal project in the end? I cannot be mad at r/xmpp because it was there before I did anything here I assume. And again, I dont blame people doing things. I blame if we have the chance to align why not doing it? (And that disappoints me). And if noone wants to use it in the end, what have we won? And its not that I liked simply creating a YT channel or office hours without discussion the similar way back then as I remember. I refused to critize the way that has been processed at that time. But this time I do critize the attitude. What of my saying ecactly did offputt you or was inappropiate? Asking so, I can understand better.
  266. Sam The thing that bothers me is that this is what happens any time anyone in the XMPP community tries to start a project or advocate for XMPP. We can't get volunteers in part because the community is so offputting. In general if someone says "I am making am XMPP thing, anyone want to help?" you don't have to help, but instead of saying "no, this is bad, jump through hoops instead if you want to do this" you might try "Have you considered using Discord instead?" and actually providing alternatives instead of just trying to impose some sort of process on it.
  267. Licaon_Kter emus: https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org/pull/1116
  268. MattJ Sam, feel free to message me directly or start a MUC about this project, I respect that it's not really a commteam thing (even if commteam could end up making use of it)
  269. Sam Yah, we should probably end the discussion here, as soon as the instance is setup I'll message a few places and let people know it exists, and if anyone wants to be involved or be an admin or anything, feel free to reach out to me of course!

  310. emus Sam, I follow your argumentation until "no, this is bad, jump through hoops instead if you want to do this". I never said this. I asked for review of alternatives and discussion before deployment. And calling this offputting is also a bit harsh. And responding to this kind of saying "No I don't want to, I just want my thing" does also offput me because I wonder - is my point actually heard? Why we cannot at least collect names of alternatives before we do something together. This is not how I understand of community work. You want to deploy a system for the community, so maybe lets at least try to get some input? But here my impression is that you had your system in mind, regardless of what the others may want or suggest. Which is also fine, but putting it here and then not even letting space to elaborate (which was and is my impression until now)... well, where do wanna go in the future like this? What's the idea of how we are working here? This is what offends me in the end, too - considering my perspective to elaborate with people and actually get input on ideas before going crazy. And in general, my intention and thoughts are when I hear such things are: - Is it inventing the wheel again? Do we have solutions already? What options do we have? - Ok, then let's try to arrange etc. to get together more resources and not making it a shortterm project which dies after 2 months. I think it is not asking for too much in a diverse community. And this is why I think asking for review of options or "imposing some process/organization" is alright. But yes, if there is anything else to discuss we can direct message.
  311. Wojtek has left
  312. Wojtek has joined
  313. Sam I am happy to elaborate on the thing I'm working on, if I gave the impression that I don't even want to talk about it I'm sorry. What I'm *not* happy to do is change my project because I'm not using your favorite software. Yes, I had a thing in mind, I am doing it myself one way or another. I didn't *need* to get anyone else here involved at all, I just thought you might be interested.
  314. Sam This is the same as when someone posts a new client and immediately gets a dozen messages saying "why didn't you use <my favorite programming language>?" or "Why is this QT instead of GTK?" or something, in my opinion, and it's extremely offputting and just makes people not want to try new things or spin up new projects.
  315. Sam It is absolutely fine if you want to go create some phpBB forums or evaluate 10 alternatives and pick one or whatever, feel free to go do that, but don't interrupt my project and ask that I do it your way.

  322. emus Yes, I see that Sam. It's not "my favorite software". I asked for review of alternatives and other options in general as you were reaching out for a wider audience (in my impression). And as I try to serve a wider and diverse audience to my very best, I think it was rather clear I ask for this - especially in this chat - and as I thought you wanted to deploy with some more backup (and that would have been great for your good idea in general...) Well, you deploy on xmpp.net. Even its for community projects, how many more XMPP forums do you expect to be out there? What you do will be the "XMPP Forum" for 99% of the potential users now. That's why I only asked to hold on for a second and review with some sensitivity. (And at least the advantages, why this is such a good system could have been told) So, you seem to prefer to have your thing in mind and want to get them deployed no matter what. But when asking for input on such topic with this attitude I wonder if this is what ideation and collaboration should be... but maybe I have a misconception. That's definitively not the attitude I try to develop and propagate.
  323. pep. has left
  324. emus Newsletter: Anymore comments? time would be now
  325. Sam Maybe I don't understand the problem then; is the problem that it's on xmpp.net? I don't think it's going to get the adoption you seem to be suggesting, I doubt most people even want forums, but it would be nice if it did.
  326. Sam Anyways, doesn't matter, I am launching a Lemmy instance. Lemmy specifically. I am not interested in reviewing other alternatives, it's a lemmy instance that I want to run. It doesn't have to be on XMPP.net, and you don't have to help with it, but I am not looking to run something else or evaluate other things. It's as simple as that.
  327. emus Sam: Well, I also had the idea. I just don't knew what forum software is good. That's why I wanted to hear some opinions or compare feature or what ever. Sounds maybe more, than what I was asking for
  328. Sam I mean, others are welcome to compare and launch their own thing, but I'm not interested in launching general forum software, my project is to launch a lemmy instance in particular. If someone else wants the best general forum stuff they are welcome to do a comparison of phpBB and Discord or whatever and launch whatever they see fit.
  329. emus Yeah, I think that's just high risk of fragmenting and confusing everyone and just not good management in my opinion. And it could be sorted out easily or show how much potential acceptance is there. But I assume I have to high expectations to this
  330. Sam And I don't think that's true.
  331. emus ok
  332. Sam If nobody uses this there is nothing lost; if everybody uses it, great, who cares if technically some other non-federated alternative would have been slightly better? There is literally no risk to trying this and it's something I've wanted to use for my own projects for a while. So instead of bike shedding, I'm just going to do it.
  333. Sam If a few people use it and a few people setup and use a discord (for example): great, there's still nothing lost and the fragmentation literally doesn't matter and isn't any worse than having some people on reddit today and some people on mastodon and some people on movim, for example.
  334. Licaon_Kter Sam: there's a risk of concluding _"nobody used it 'cause they're haters"_
  335. Sam Licaon_Kter: I didn't understand that, sorry?
  336. Sam Who would conclude that and would it matter if they did? I mean, maybe everyone else hates lemmy, that's fine, then we try something else later if this is an idea we want

  339. patasca has left
  340. emus Well, maybe everyone says "yes please lets go for lemmy". Then why not deploy it with some more official backup?
  341. pep. Sam: fwiw jonas took over the xmpp.link domain I had. I don't know if he's got plans for it, maybe worth asking
  342. Sam Nothing at all, feel free to go do that. In the mean time, I have a personal project where I'm launching a lemmy instance, if the XSF wants to do something with it later they're welcome to it.
  343. Sam huh, TIL: ".link" nice.
  344. Licaon_Kter Sam: > I didn't understand that, sorry?

  345. Sam oooh, I see, the author of the software might conclude that because they got those sorts of messages? Yah, it's one of the reasons it's bad that this sort of feedback happens a lot instead of actual feedback about the parts of the client that matter
  346. Sam I remember being at FOSDEM back in the before times when travel was safe and hearing a cool talk about Telepathy development or something. I had a question I wanted to ask, and then some person in the audience asked "why didn't you do all this work on libpurple instead of using a terrible thing like telepathy?". I didn't get to ask my question because they argued with the presenter for half the Q&A session. I was furious, presumably the presenter felt bad, etc. Not great.

  355. emus Well, sorry if I made you felt bad in the end. I felt also ignored and got really disappointed, too. See from an organizational, resource and communicating perspective. Here I think it is alright to ask this and I will continue to ask for this if ideas are getting raise topics here. Yeah, we all want to just wanna do our thing... We had one single reviewer from the community so far. I seriously asked this month to support on PR and release preparation because I had issues to keep up this month - but here I'm sitting again doing most of it. And then we wonder why I ask where to put resources and being frustrated if people go for their own low-hanging fruits only and then telling me to shut up if I question their attempts...

  424. Sam Looks like the GoJara plugin for Openfire link is broken, FYI

  432. emus singpolyma - may you have some time to support regarding mailman? I wonder how I can best send the mail to the maillist and have at least a bit of nice formatting and not plain text only
  433. singpolyma emus: oh, hmm. I think mailman can support HTML email. I've never used it that way, but if you send one I think it will pass it through
  434. emus Can you copy the newsletter page into a mail draft? At least that is how I am trying to do it via protonmail?
  435. Wojtek has left
  436. Wojtek has joined
  437. singpolyma Yeah, with an HTML supporting email client cut-paste should preserve most formatting
  438. emus The only thing that does not work are images. They are not shown at all. Shall I leave it like this for the moment?
  439. emus The other format is "okay" note alike the website and Tinyletter. but one can still read nicely I think
  440. emus https://jabbers.one:5281/upload/uaDAiBEXbD2sd1mQ/6ad1025d-c7ee-4eeb-beab-4f6520e14f8c.png

  442. qwestion has joined
  443. emus I will send it without pictures ok?
  444. singpolyma yeah, images in an email are possible but doing it in a privacy respecting way is even more work I think, depends on client support etc
  445. emus ok
  446. emus Okay, wish me luck and check your mailbox
  447. emus Licaon_Kter - anything in your mailbox?
  448. Licaon_Kter > Looks like the GoJara plugin for Openfire link is broken, FYI Was fixed too?
  449. Licaon_Kter > Licaon_Kter - anything in your mailbox? Nope

  457. pep. Does the static site generator you're using has a way to run hooks btw? For example there could be a thing that also publishes (and updates) on microblog whenever an article is published
  458. pep. I don't know if there's such an app but "it shouldn't be that hard"?
  459. pep. Would be good to dogfood a bit

  463. emus pep.: what means dogfooding?
  464. MattJ https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dogfood#Verb
  465. MattJ Using our own stuff
  466. pep. emus, using our own tools to improve them :)

  469. emus there is hugo server
  470. emus command if you mean this?
  471. pep. Ok I'll have a look at hugo, I also use it but I've never at a look at hooks
  472. emus Im not sure what you mean my hooks. You want to preview?
  473. pep. By hook I mean, a script that hugo would run when we generate the website, passing it arguments as well
  474. pep. And that script we would make it publish to microblog
  475. emus ah okay. well, I have not done the setup so I likely cannot answer. You mean push it something like movim?
  476. pep. No, but yes. I mean no, we'd just push it to XMPP, but yes that's "something like Movim" :)

  479. emus ok, well I think more automation would be nice. also to create the monthly new PRs. But I dont know how. Lets wait what wurstsalat says if that works. maybe its could be a github action too?
  480. pep. Maybe it could be a github action too, dunno.
  481. pep. I'll have a quick look at hugo
  482. emus pep.: can you create a PR and describe your idea. I think wurstsalat will pick up on this later, at least comment what can work
  483. Alex has left
  484. qwestion has left
  485. emus sorry, I meant issue
  486. pep. Yeah sure, I'll do that :)
  487. emus cool!
  488. patasca has joined
  489. wurstsalat pep.: I don't know about hooks, but the page is prepared and built using `make publish` (including various commands). What you're after would probably be something like "if new article -> post there". Dunno if the RSS feed would be enough for that?
  490. emus But it sounds like that a merge could trigger this somehow too

  494. wurstsalat Sure, there is a Github action for linting, but there could be others as well
  495. pep. wurstsalat, hmm yeah I guess we don't exactly need hugo hooks, dunno. Even though we might have benefited from hugo converting stuff to html. Maybe we can just run the thing afterwards
  496. pep. We'd also need to be able to update articles
  497. singpolyma Are the articles written in markdown?
  498. singpolyma Because if the flavour is pretty normal any other tool can probably do the HTML compile. Pandoc etc
  499. pep. Yeah I guess. though we might want to keep the theme?
  500. pep. I mean we can publish both formats
