  25. Tobias what'd be the recommended procedure for new XEPs that use protocol described in deprecated XEPs?
  26. stpeter hmm
  27. m&m hrm
  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
  32. stpeter ok

  35. Tobias http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0265.html
  36. Kanchil Tobias: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0265.html: XEP-0265: Out-of-Band Stream Data
  37. Tobias that's the one
  38. Tobias so?
  39. stpeter 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?

  52. stpeter 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 :)
  56. stpeter brb
  57. Tobias heh
