XMPP Council - 2018-03-29

  1. Ge0rG

    We should have voted on XEP-0403 yesterday. Then we could have prepared XEP-404 in time for Sunday.

  2. Kev

    Still can. Nothing stopping us releasing 404 before 403, if there's a suitable proposal.

  3. Kev

    I don't have time to write an appropriate XEP this year, though.

  4. Ge0rG

    Kev: oh, I thought you were the one volunteering.

  5. Ge0rG

    I don't have the time either, unfortunately.

  6. Kev

    I had intended to, but April has come on rather quickly. I don't even remember what I was going to write, other than it being 404-based.

  7. Ge0rG

    IMHO, you and Dave are the two persons most prepared (and eloquent) to write such an XEP

  8. moparisthebest

    wouldn't it be funnier if xep-0404 stayed like this https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0404.html ?

  9. moparisthebest

    can't council reserve numbers for funny jokes?

  10. Zash

    I don't think you are serious enough. One should be serious.

  11. moparisthebest

    then Dave should be fired, because he writes the funniest stuff of all

  13. SouL

    Didn't some people agree on doind that? I'm not a fan of it but well

  14. SouL


  15. SamWhited

    Something simple would be fine too, it doesn't need a lot of text.

  16. moparisthebest

    403 should just be a XEP that says "You aren't allowed to be reading this"

  17. moparisthebest

    or something similar

  18. SamWhited

    I'll throw something together if I get a chance, although it probably won't be as amusing as if someone else wrote it

  19. moparisthebest

    404 should just be skipped so it's an actual 404 error, in my opinion :P

  20. SamWhited

    moparisthebest: why not both? Our custom 404 page could *be* the humerous XEP (which could also return a 404)

  21. moparisthebest

    yea that'd also be acceptably funny :)

  22. SamWhited

    People who speak languages other than English: How is "Not Found" translated? This XEP needs an Internationalization section.

  23. moparisthebest

    can xep-0500.html just be <stream:error><internal-server-error xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-streams'/></stream:error> , might as well get all the jokes out of the way

  24. SamWhited

    MattJ: you appear to be the owner of operators@, any chance you could ban the spammer or give me admin so I can take care of it? Thanks

  25. Dave

    Lance, Long time no see.

  27. Zash

    SamWhited: The someone who quoted spam?

  28. SamWhited


  29. SamWhited

    Thought it was the same person that was spamming in another room, but I guess they were just quoting the spam. Still, poor form.

  31. Ge0rG

    SamWhited: German is "Page not found"="Seite nicht gefunden" or "Not found"="Nicht gefunden"
