  4. Guus As we discussed in the last meeting, I've contacted a designer to see if he can come up with designs for things that we can hand out at conferences, etc. Today, he sent me this:
  5. Guus > I have two design variations for the XSF A4 Size folder design with pockets to hold the flyers or papers. I have some more stuff to add on the folders but I wanted to get your feedback to finalize it. Attached images are only for preview and not high resolution.

  23. pep. Visually I prefer the second one.
  24. pep. I thought this was mostly flyers to describe what XMPP is though, not the XSF, so I'm a bit surprised that they're titled "XSF" :x
  25. Guus The second one, being the lighter one?
  26. Guus Don't focus on the texts just yet. 😉
  27. Guus (I agree: we should have folders on XMPP, primarily - but it might not be bad to have one about the XSF too).
  28. Guus but what I sent today was primarily to get feedback on the design, not content (yet)
  29. daniel There are both pretty cool. But yes I also like the lighter one a bit better
  30. Guus This might be just from my context, but the darker one, I relate to the ignite realtime community more than XSF.
  31. Guus Ignite uses similar colors for its website.
  32. Guus The lighter one seems to re-use the color scheme from the XMPP logo, making it more recognizable to me. I prefer that one for the XSF as well.
  33. MattJ +1 for lighter
  34. daniel Guus: yes the matching colors is what I like about it as well.
  35. pep. Guus, yes the lighter one

  40. daniel We have multiple sprints coming up this quarter. We haven't anything lined up for after that yet. To encourage sprints at the same pace I would like to officially communicate our (xsf/scam) willingness to sponsor sprints that are open to the public. I suggest we use the 'Sprints' (how to sprint) page on the wiki for that. Sponsorship (at the beginning, because I think that's the minimum we can agree on) includes non alcoholic beverages and snack / food under certain amounts. (like ordering pizza might be fine but not 6 course menu) I further suggest that pep and I in the sprints channel act as point of contact
  41. daniel Putting it in the sprints channel also makes the request / the announcement of the sprint inherently public
  42. daniel Conditions on our side are announced publicly on wiki + public blog post about results
  43. daniel And scams prior ok
  44. daniel No claims afterwards
  45. daniel More sponsorings (travel, location) can be reevaluated after we done the first thing a bunch of times
  46. MattJ Sounds good to me
  47. daniel (me personally, even though I don't drink anyway, are not super set on the non alcoholic part of the beverages. But someone else wanted that in iirc)
  48. daniel I mean sponsoring drugs is probably a slippery slope. We don't want to get into the 'is weed a snack' debate
  49. MattJ :)
  50. MattJ I know certain circles where it wouldn't even be a debate
  51. MattJ But yes, this all makes sense
  52. MattJ I'd also volunteer to organise a sprint in the UK if it were slightly easier and if... there's actually any interest
  53. MattJ I note there are two in Germany in March, it's a shame but I can't really just fly out to Germany twice in a month
  54. MattJ But I get that there is a not-insignificant cluster of devs and users there
  55. daniel Well the Dusseldorf isn't probably very interesting to you anyway. But the Berlin one was fun last year
  56. daniel Especially since it has catering and stuff
  57. MattJ I'm guessing that wasn't the one I went to some years back (was that a summit or a sprint or what? I can't remember)
  58. daniel I think there was one a long time ago prior to ietf
  59. daniel That was a sprint I think
  60. daniel But I only know about that from a wiki page
  61. MattJ Found my flight receipt, it was a summit in 2014
  62. MattJ Time flies
  63. MattJ https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Conferences/Summit_16 was it

  65. lskjflskdjf Guus, I'm a bit suprised at that it is an envelope for other flyers. Given that there are barely any xmpp flyers, it seems odd that the first think to be designed is an envelope for other flyers. And as a normal flyer this design is slightly off given that 90% of it's space is just "decoration". Even if there would be other flyers to put in there, I wouldn't be quite convinced by the concept of a flyer envelope - why not do a "normal" flyer with the light theme?
