    just forward my mail? ;)

  4. Ge0rG

    jonas’: why did you split the github URL into two lines? Crappy MUA?

  5. jonas’

    Ge0rG, yes.

  6. jonas’

    known bug in kmail

  7. Ge0rG

    I'm -1 based on the new name alone.

    although, I heard that in recent history there was a XEP where the only objection was the title, and it was amended and then accepted in no-time ;-)

  10. Ge0rG

    I already wrote on the standards@ MUC that "Resource" is a well-defined term in XMPP parlance and it's not what this XEP does

  11. Ge0rG

    And I even proposed less-bad alternatives.

  12. Ge0rG

    I didn't come up with good alternatives, though.

    > This specification describes how to publish and retrieve avatars from XMPP resources. So now each of my clients has a face, eh?

  14. jonas’

    "Entity Avatars"

  15. jonas’

    or "Generic Avatars"

  16. Ge0rG

    I also agree with MattJ's comment on the list, > I think in the spirit of Timothée's original post is not really related to avatars, but simply how to receive notifications of disco changes. and the proposed notification is MUC-specific

    I could finally embed the visual yak representation. Also a great thing for IBR
