XMPP Council - 2018-10-17

  1. Ge0rG

    Luckily now there is a XEP to fix this behavior.

  2. Ge0rG

    Do we have an agenda?

  3. dwd

    Hiya. So, new job started this week, hence I'm woefully disorganised.

  4. dwd

    But at least I'm here.

  5. Ge0rG

    Even two minutes early!

  6. dwd

    By total fluke.

  7. Ge0rG

    Looks like we survived last week's descriptor shortage and the missing Council members have rejoined.

  8. dwd

    Right, so:

  9. dwd

    1) Is There Anybody Out There?

  10. Ge0rG

  11. dwd

    SamWhited / daniel ?

  12. SamWhited


  13. dwd

    Kev sent apologies last week.

  14. Ge0rG

    is Kev excused?

  15. daniel


  16. dwd

    Well, he said he'd be unlikely to make it.

  17. dwd

    Hi daniel.

  18. dwd

    2) Matters for voting

  19. dwd

    I don't think there's anything new.

  20. dwd

    PR 706 remains open, and there's a bunch of things that have probably timed out.

  21. Ge0rG

    I think we voted to LC XEP-0359 and XEP-0357

  22. Ge0rG looks at jonas’, the editor.

  23. Ge0rG

    oh, both are missing votes from dwd, due today

  24. dwd

    +1 to both.

  25. dwd

    (And thanks for the nudge)

  26. Ge0rG

    I didn't see any new votes on 706

  27. Ge0rG

    oh, +1 from Sam

  28. dwd

    No, though I say Teddsterr had done a chunk of work.

  29. Ge0rG

    dwd: indeed, awesome text processing on Tedd's part.

  30. Ge0rG

    I still think we should move on with the change, and daniel is pending and Kev is on-list.

  31. dwd

    My gut feeling remains that non-normative sues will remain non-noprmative, and any lower-case normative words will remain normative (just without the specific meaning of RFC 2119).

  32. dwd

    ie - Tedd's work doesn't really change my mind, though it's great to have.

  33. Ge0rG

    dwd: if you just said that applying the PR won't change the meaning, I agree

  34. Ge0rG

    the meaning of XEPs, that is

  35. dwd

    Well, I think that people who previously considered RFC 2119 words to have that meaning irrespective of case will see a small, but insignificant change.

  36. Ge0rG

    wouldn't that be "small _and_ insignificant"?

  37. dwd

    Either works for me.

  38. Ge0rG


  39. dwd

    It is a small change to meaning, but an insigificant one.

  40. Ge0rG

    Move to AOB then?

  41. dwd


  42. dwd

    3) AOB

  43. Ge0rG

    I've got one. https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board_and_Council_Elections_2018

  44. dwd

    Oh, indeed.

  45. Ge0rG

    November 4th, 2018 is the deadline to reapply.

  46. Ge0rG

    We don't have any Council applicants yet.

  47. dwd

    It'd be great to see a contested election.

  48. Ge0rG

    I'll try to prepare banner ads and giveaways.

  49. SamWhited

    "You're the 1 millionth visitor to apply for council!"

  50. SamWhited


  51. dwd

    Yeah - but I think it's worth nudging people we think would be good, whether or not we might be standing again.

  52. dwd

    Any Other Any Other Business>

  53. dwd

    Any Other Any Other Business?

  54. dwd

    If not:

  55. dwd
