    I’ve added an agenda item about pseudonymous authors to the Board meeting agenda ~70 minutes from now: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board-Meeting-2024-03-07

  2. pep.

    stpeter, maybe s/pseudonymous/confirmed pseudonymous/ (or even "self-declared"), because it's not like the XSF is going to verify

  3. stpeter

    Yeah, that’s one of the issues I plan to bring up. Heck, I might have been operating under a pseudonym all these years.

    To my mind there's a difference between someone lying about their name when they say they can't, and us saying they can.

  6. pep.

    If there is even a requirement anywhere to use a legal name, anyway

  7. stpeter

    pep. - no, thus the need for the Board to say something

  9. Kev

    I don't have a particular care either way, but it's not my decision to make, thus Board.

  10. stpeter

    OK, the Board decided it is fine to accept this contribution.

  11. stpeter

    And also added Daniel to the team, yay!

  12. Kev

    Ta. Daniel - please let me know which stuff you want to do and I’ll try to share instructions. Ideally don’t do any merging until you’re ready to run the publishing scripts please.

    Kev: can you write what needs done to get rid of that instead?

  14. moparisthebest

    Ideally clicking "merge" would be sufficient to do everything right?
