    1) Roll Call

  152. dwd

    (Just in time!)

  153. jonas’

    do we get a daniel?

    2) Agenda Bashing

  157. jonas’


  158. jonas’

    taking that as a no.

  159. jonas’

    3) Editor’s Update - Accepted XEP-0352 (Client State Indication) as Draft - Accepted XEP-0411 (Bookmarks Conversion) as Draft

  160. jonas’

    4) Items for voting

  161. jonas’

    4a) MR!22: add composer, date, genre, language, lyricist, and performer tags; make rating optional URL: https://gitlab.com/xsf/xeps/-/merge_requests/25/diffs Abstract: It seems, that "XEP-0118: User Tune" has been written mainly with pop music in mind, or maybe progressive rock. To make it more interesting for use with classical music or jazz, or audio books, some tags should be added, at least composer, date, genre, language, lyricist, and performer.

  165. Zash

    Hm, Draft

  166. jonas’


  167. Zash

    and non-versioned namespace

  168. jonas’


  169. jonas’

    not sure what to do with this

  170. jonas’

    would it make sense to put the new stuff in a separate namespace but under the same child?

  171. dwd

    My gut feeling on this is that the better solution might be to create an entirely new User Tune kind of thing. I'm guessing that there's probably a lot more other/prior art here now, thanks to the likes of Spotify etc.

  172. daniel

    probably what dwd said

  173. daniel

    i don’t really have an opinion on that tbh

  174. dwd

    At least better to explore that avenue first.

  175. daniel

    do people actually use that?

  176. jonas’

    from a practical perspective, I think no harm is done by adding elements scoped into a different namespace under the same child

  177. jonas’

    from a practical perspective, I think no harm is done by adding elements scoped into a different namespace under the same <tune/>

  178. dwd

    daniel, Yes, though Edwin Mons has been listening to the same music for possibly decades now.

  179. jonas’

    it’s obviously a 90% solution only, however, I doubt that we can get a 100% solution

  180. Zash

    There's probably not much harm in accepting this either, unless someone has a strict schema validator.

  181. sonny has joined

  182. Kev

    dwd: That sounds likely, TBH.

  183. dwd

    Kev, I admit the "progressive rock" reference in the PR did make me think of him...

  184. Zash

    Version 1.2 (2008-01-30) > Added rating element.

  185. Zash


  186. jonas’

    I’ll be bold and vote +1 on this.

  187. jonas’

    Zash, nice find!

  188. Zash

    Myeah, +1

  189. dwd

    I think I'm -0.

  190. jonas’

    any other votes?

  191. Kev

    What is the harm in namespacing it, vs the known harm of not doing so?

  192. Zash

    If someone does find a Right Proper standard for audio metadata that we could point to, that'd be cool as a User Tune 2

  193. Ge0rG

    I'm on-list

  194. Zash

    Kev, complicates implementations

  195. jonas’

    Kev, round trip with the MR author causing friction vs. potential strict schema validators breaking

  196. daniel

    if I vote -0 it takes a +1 from Ge0rG for it to go through right?

  197. jonas’

    daniel, true

  198. daniel

    -0 then

  199. jonas’


  200. jonas’


  201. jonas’

    moving on

  202. Kev

    jonas’: I note that those *are* a thing. People do deploy checkers to ensure content conforms to specs.

  203. dwd

    daniel, Ge0rG can take the pressure.

  204. jonas’

    4b) Propose Martin Dosch as Editor

  205. jonas’


  206. Ge0rG


  207. daniel


  208. Zash


  209. dwd

    I have had, I think, little contact with him, but anyone willing to put in the work sounds like a good idea, so +1.

  210. jonas’

    (formerly known as !XSF_Martin in xsf@)

  211. jonas’

    (nowadays knows as mdosch)

  212. dwd


  213. Kev

    (I feel this falls far short of "backwards-incompatible modifications shall be avoided if at all possible" FWIW, but will drop it now)

  214. jonas’

    (nowadays known as mdosch)

  215. jonas’

    Kev, you’re right

  216. jonas’

    5) Date of Next

  217. Zash


  218. jonas’

    (logs into calendar thing to find out)

  219. Zash looks at `ncal -b -3`

  220. daniel

    +1w wfm

  221. jonas’

    +1w should wfm, but it’s RIPE GM in that week, so I may not be able to chair

  222. Zash

    +1w wfm

  223. jonas’

    hoping that we’ll get quorum next week then

  224. jonas’

    6) AOB

  225. sonny has left

  226. sonny has joined

  227. Zash

    None here

  228. jonas’

    ok, I’ll go ahead then: Elections are coming up

  229. jonas’

    put up your application if you want to (deadline is 2020-11-08) and/or encourage folks from the community of whom you’d think they’d be good in this role

  230. jonas’

    that’s it

  231. jonas’

    7) Ite Meeting Est

  232. jonas’

    thanks everyone

  233. jonas’

    thanks Tedd

  234. Zash


  235. jonas’

    dwd, reminder that you wanted to start a thread on OOB vs. SIMS vs. ??? in the context of the CFE for http upload

  236. Zash

    Hmmmmmm, will I have more spare cycles next year?

  237. jonas’

    if 2020 taught us anything, it’s how unpredictable the world is *shrug*

  238. dwd

    Yes, I will.

  239. dwd

    In fact I've got the CFE up to reply to already. Just haven't written the email, but I will do now.

  240. jonas’

    neat :)
