    Hi, does anyone know if something like chathistorysync exists for XMPP? For mass archival of room chats in a plain text way, or at least server antagonistic

  2. jonas’

    for archival, I'm sure there are tools (clix <https://code.zash.se/clix/> maybe).

  3. jonas’

    yep, looks like clix has an `archive irc` subcommand which exports a room's archive as IRC-log-style plaintext.

    That's awesome, thanks!

    Umm who and why? `Accepted inbound s2s EXTERNAL authentication xmppnetwork.goodbytes.im -> mydomain.tld`

  6. Licaon_Kter

    Guus ?

  7. Guus


  8. Guus

    well, me. Yes.

  9. Licaon_Kter

    Because somebody else was s2s to me and they provide the pub data?

  10. Guus

    The why is most likely: because another domain reported your domain as a contact (that domain _should_ have checked that you're OK with that data being disclosed, but apparently didnt?). My service then performs a disco/info check to see if your domain advertises support (and will not do anthing, if it does not).

  11. Licaon_Kter

    Ok, but I see several conections per day, that's not ok...

  12. Guus

    reach out to me in private with some timestamps and the actual domain anme, and I can dig in the logs of my server if you want.

  13. Guus

    Well, I'm not retaining data. So if that third party server send me your name every few hours, my server will check every few hours.

  14. MattJ

    Out of curiosity, what makes it not ok?

  15. Guus

    There's room for a bit of improvement there ... but that's not high on my priority list.

  16. Licaon_Kter

    MattJ: leaking my server to goodbytes...

  17. MattJ

    Yeah, it would be good to find out how that happened

  18. Licaon_Kter

    MattJ: leaking my server to a third party...

  19. Guus

    Licaon_Kter: I can try to find the culprit there.

  20. Licaon_Kter

    Join Conversations so I can see your jid

  22. Licaon_Kter

    Or that

  23. Licaon_Kter muses how XMPP devs can't share an xmpp properly either

  24. Guus

    As I've been involved in most plugin/mod implementations, I'm curious what is triggering this. Maybe an old version, somewhere?
