    ben, check your email for various account passwords

  5. stpeter

    I really appreciate your help!

  6. stpeter

    hi Swen

  7. Swen

    Hi there

  8. stpeter

    I think the next task is for me to provide a list of the requests I half-processed last year :)

  9. stpeter

    we could do that on a wiki page

  10. Swen

    yes, that would be great, we will check those again and implement them into the list

  11. stpeter


  12. stpeter

    we could use http://tracker.xmpp.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa but that's a bit heavy, perhaps

  13. Swen

    nice project tracker!

  14. stpeter

    http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Public_Services created

  15. stpeter

    I'll make some updates to that right now

  16. Swen

    ok great, i will delete the offline servers later

  17. stpeter

    well I am being pulled off to a lunch meeting, so I won't edit the page now

  18. stpeter


  19. ben

    account passwords arrived, thanks stpeter

  20. Swen

    all right, i guess i have no permission to hide or delete a row in this table..... can you try it ben?

  21. ben

    can you give an example row?

  22. ben

    seems to work for me, swen

  23. Swen

    row 10 is outdates, default.rs is not longer active

  24. Swen


  25. ben

    yep, i can hide rows

  26. Swen

    ok great

  27. Swen

    i will have a look which numbers are the offline ones

  28. ben

    that would be cool :)

  29. Swen

    row 5 and 6 cassilis.net and chatmask.com - both offline

  30. Swen

    row 37 and 38 jabber.hispano.org and jabberbr.com both offline

  31. Swen

    row 41 and 49 jabberim.de and lethyro.net both offline

  32. ben

    i'll just hide them for now, the great cleanup can be done when we add the new applications

  33. Swen

    after that, we could add your and my services to the list, and peters as well (when we receive it)

  34. Swen

    yes of course, i wouldn't delete them either

  35. Swen

    by peters i meant the one's which weren't added in the last year ;)

  36. ben

    lets wait for peter to add his "half-processed list" to the wiki

  37. ben

    how did you check the servers?

  38. Swen

    yes, better plan, all together is the better way

  39. Swen

    you mean the SRV check?

  40. ben


  41. Swen

    i will paste the command

  42. Swen

    one sec

  43. Swen

    you can check this through a simple dig command

  44. Swen

    like this

  45. Swen

    dig SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.jabberheaven.com

  46. Swen

    or dig SRV _xmpp-client._tcp.jabberheaven.com

  47. ben

    yes, thats clear, thought you used matthias ertls script from the ML

  48. Swen

    ah, no i didn't i just checked the ping resolve, SRV records and website

  49. Swen

    those "offline" ones haven't had any response to any of these checks

  50. ben

    I'll see if it could be used against a list of servers, so we could do regular checks on the whole list

  51. ben

    (the script)

  52. ben

    would also reduce manual work to approve new servers

  53. Swen

    that would be very helpfull

  54. ben

    as far as i can see, it checks all criteria for being added to list (http://xmpp.org/resources/public-services/verification/)

  55. Swen

    besides of the personal contact i guess

  56. ben

    sure :P

  57. Swen

    but the precheck could be done through this script, that would save a lot of time

  58. ben

    I'm trying to put applications of this year into a processable list-form…we should consider putting up a form for people to fill out, so this could also be scripted...

  59. Swen

    good idea

  60. stpeter

    hey guys, I'm back

  61. stpeter

    the primary check I really care about is to make sure that the real owners of the domain or admins of the service are the ones asking to be listed, thus the messages to hostmaster@ and so on

  62. ben


  63. stpeter

    but scripting the rest with a form etc. sounds good

  64. ben

    sure, personal contact should be first concern

  65. ben

    the scripting part is to make the boring stuff easier

  66. stpeter

    yep :)

  67. stpeter

    do you guys have the right permissions to modify the table?

  68. ben

    i can, but swen doesn't seem to be able

  69. stpeter


  70. stpeter

    ok let me check

  71. ben

    i already hid the offline servers from the public table

  72. ben

    (the ones swen checked)

  73. stpeter

    you both have "Editor" status

  74. stpeter

    in WordPress

  75. ben

    hmm, thats weird :)

  76. Swen

    yeah could be my browser

  77. Swen

    sometimes i just hate chromium ;)

  78. stpeter


  79. stpeter

    I use FF most of the time

  80. Swen

    i changed because of the weird java errors of FF... but the new one should be better, i'll give it a try

  81. stpeter


  82. stpeter

    if that doesn't help, I can make you both Administrators

  83. Swen

    shouldn't be neccessary

  84. stpeter

    unfortunately I need to be offline for the next hour or so, but tonight I will update the wiki page so we can start tracking the registrations

  85. ben

    do you know up to which month you "half-processed" applications?

  86. stpeter

    only up to July

  87. ben

    good, then i'll try to put the later ones into a processable format

  88. stpeter


  89. Swen

    great great :)

  90. stpeter

    sure, there are many since then

  91. Swen

    i will go offline too, i have to work tomorrow morning... and it's bedtime in germany right now ;)

  92. stpeter


  93. ben

    i already started, and now i understand why those things were postponed :)

  94. Swen

    allright, i'm off for now, see you guy's latest tomorrow morning, i will do some work on the list at work

  95. ben

    good night

  96. Swen

    my luck taht i'm working for a domain registrar ;)

  97. Swen

    good night

  98. stpeter

    so I have half-processed (verified that domain owners approve) these: chrome.pl, tigase.im, jabber.me, weavver.com, univers-libre.net, jabber.earth.li, rkquery.de, lightwitch.org, xmpp-hosting.de, and theforest.us

  99. stpeter

    Swen: tschüss

  100. ben

    hey, you have an "ü"-key :)

  101. stpeter

    ben: if you have time, you can update http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Public_Services with that information, or I can do it a bit later today

  102. stpeter

    no, I have alt-u to make an umlaut as a combining character, then I can type another key like 'u' or 'y'

  103. ben

    unfortunately I'm sharing time-zones with swen, so I'll have to hit the bed too in about an hour, but I'll post everything i have done to the wiki-page

  104. stpeter

    oh yeah no hurry :)

  105. ben

    so, not native ü :)

  106. stpeter

    as you can see, we have a backlog since almost a year -- a few days won't be so bad :)

  107. stpeter

    right, it's not native ü

  108. stpeter

    I am in America after all :)

  109. ben

    thats why I was wondering :)

  110. stpeter


  111. stpeter

    ok, I'm going to log off now, but I will update the wiki page this evening (only 14:24 here)

  112. ben

    have a nice rest-day

  113. stpeter

    danke schön, und güte nacht :)
