    what'd be the recommended procedure for new XEPs that use protocol described in deprecated XEPs?

  26. stpeter


  27. m&m


  28. stpeter

    good question

  29. m&m

    it probably depends on how the deprecated XEP made it there?

  30. stpeter

    which deprecated XEP?

  31. Tobias

    let me look it up from a conversation..one sec

    Tobias: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0265.html: XEP-0265: Out-of-Band Stream Data

  37. Tobias

    that's the one

    Tobias: sorry, I was in a video chat for the last 90 minutes...

  40. Tobias

    those hip kids with their fancy technology

  41. stpeter

    BTW, XEP-0265 is only deferred, not deprecated -- there's an important difference between "this went idle" and "this was a bad idea and we're phasing it out" :)

  42. Tobias

    ahh...rigth...misrememberd that

  43. Tobias

    and what's the recommended procedure in this case? have the author get the deferred XEP get active again?

  44. stpeter

    or have someone volunteer to take over maintainership

  45. Kev

    Tobias: Why do you want to resurrect 265?

  46. Tobias

    i don't, but someone writing a proto-XEP wants :)

  47. stpeter

    timezone changes are endlessly confusing -- I'm trying to figure out what the time will be UTC during an IETF WG session next Tuesday in Atlanta, after daylight saving time is done :)

  48. Zash

    Kill them with fire!

  49. Tobias

    stpeter, i though you've reduced your IETF time?

    Tobias: I did, but I'm still trying to extract myself from some commitments and people keep asking me to do things (like co-chair the BoF on video codecs so we don't all use H.264 forever!)

  53. Tobias

    so just use vp8 and let google pay eventual license fees :)

  54. stpeter

    right, the video-codec effort will attempt to standarize an open audio codec, much as we did for audio with the Opus effort

  55. stpeter

    I co-chaired the audio codec BoF, so people thought I might be a good person to co-chair the video-codec BoF :)
