XMPP Summit - 2020-01-30

  1. kingu

    pep.: I hope it is similar to the ones at CCC

  2. pep.

    Not it's a bit different

  3. pep.

    I'm sorry I don't recognize your nick, are a user? dev? operator? allofit? :)

  4. pep.

    We're going to discuss specifications. Issues with some of the existing ones, new ideas (and getting input from others), etc.

  5. pep.

    Maybe show-casing specific implementations etc..

  6. pep.

    The target public is mostly developers, but I wouldn't say it's necessarily all developers, maybe also directions etc. where does the XSF want to go (that's a big maybe?)

  80. thdouk has left

  81. MattJ

    There's a 9:30 train from the station about 10min walk from Thon

  82. kingu

    I also do some UI and design, which I saw there was a planned discussion for

  83. Holger

  139. pep.

    jonas’ / remote people, any topics to propose?

  140. jonas’

    pep., "How to get A/V ready"? ;)

  141. pep.


  142. jonas’

    I’d be interested in discussion smart MAM and Inbox related things

  143. jonas’

    but also reactions

  144. adiaholic has left

  146. pep.

    https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/XMPPSummit24Day1 minutes

  147. jonas’

    we can quickly finish the first proposed agendum ("In-client, unified, public MUC search (not disco) - Nÿco")

  148. jonas’

    with a link to : https://search.jabber.network/docs/api#xmpp

  149. Daniel

    yes. or at least we need to know what is wrong with that

  150. jonas’


  151. pep.

    Is the A/V link still the same that's indicated in the topic? (or would be)

  152. jonas’

    it’s from last year, I didn’t dare to try

  153. Guus

    AV link is on wiki

  154. jonas’

    I’m joined to something which looks like A/V

  155. jonas’

    but I can’t see or hear anyone

  156. Guus

    Unless people at Cisco today have established another solution.

  157. jonas’

    there is a Ralph Meijer in it

  158. jonas’

    which is probably a good thing

  159. jonas’

    they’re also all muted

  160. jonas’

    so maybe that’s why I don’t hear anyone

  161. jonas’

    I hear voices!

  162. jonas’

    (but only barely)

  163. Tobias

    the sound of silence ;)

  164. MattJ


  165. Zash

    Everyone's muted?

  166. Tobias

    XMPP Shortage Audit?

  167. vanitasvitae

    Identifying the weaknesses of XMPP

  168. Tobias


  169. vanitasvitae

    I can hear clicking

  170. vanitasvitae


  171. vanitasvitae


  172. vanitasvitae

    we can hear you

  173. Zash

    jonas’ ?

  174. Kev

    We can hear you at least.

  175. jonas’

    yes, me

  176. Kev

    Can't see you.

  177. jonas’


  178. jonas’

    let’s try chromium

  179. Link Mauve has left

  180. Kev

    Don't know that not seeing you is your end. Ralph might not have done the things yet.

  181. Tobias

    interesting, everyone is muted yet you hear noise

  182. jonas’

    ok, so chromium claims that everything is good with video, but doesn’t let me enable it

  183. jonas’


  184. MattJ


  185. MattJ

    Speaking of UX, what on earth do these symbols me?

  186. MattJ

    Ok, I can guess most, but... the middle one?

  187. MattJ


  188. Zash


  189. Tobias

    they mean you should try to get a steady hand

  190. Kev

    Cooled, as it comes, fizzy?

  191. MattJ

    Oh yeah, blurrier than it looked when I took it

  192. Kev

    Yes, I assumed the water cooler itself wasn't blurry.

  193. jonas’

    so I’m not getting audio or video from the room, only from other non-muted guests

  194. Kev

    Just because the water cooler didn't look blurry to you, doesn't mean that the photo won't be if you're in the middle of playing rugby with the camera while taking it. 😂

  195. jonas’

    aha, I get the dreaded "video not available due to local computer conditions"

  196. jonas’

    I now get audio, but it’s reaaaaly hard to understand

  197. Ge0rG has joined

  198. MattJ

    There is no central discussion happening right now, maybe why?

  199. jonas’


  200. MattJ

    Can you hear Dave?

  201. jonas’


  202. Tobias


  203. jonas’

    I don’t recognize the voices, and it’s hard to understand

  204. Tobias

    but we can't see the topics

  205. jonas’

    that too

  206. Tobias

    jonas’, it's dave talking

  207. MattJ

    I sent a photo with the topics

  208. Tobias

    MattJ, indeed you did :)

  209. MattJ

    Not the blurry one

  215. goffi

    Hi, so webex is working? for me it's telling on Firefox that I should download the app on an other OS (may be due to my extensions), and on Chromium it's telling me that the meeting will be started when the organiser will arrive :-/

  216. Zash

    Works here

  217. jonas’

    goffi, you need to use the link from the wikip age

  218. jonas’

    the one in the topic is out of date

  219. jonas’

    goffi, https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Conferences/Summit_24#A.2FV

  220. goffi

    oh, this is confusing

  221. jonas’


  222. jonas’

    removed the link from the topic

  223. goffi

  233. jonas’

    Intosi, not sure if it’s a luxury, the audio is hard to understand without headphones sometimes :)

  234. Intosi

    This is true in the room as well ;)

  235. thdouk has left

  236. goffi

    I've never used Whatsapp, or Instagram, it's difficult to follow the discussion about what they are doing.

  237. ralphm

    XEP-0060 already defines a pubsub#item_expire node config option.

    Remarks from the internet regarding the status topic: > @vanitasvitae fix me if I wrong, but statuses are describes statuses of recourses, not device. Currently, if desktop client is "away" and phone status is "online", you will see both statuses simultaneously. I do not see any issues here

  250. adiaholic has left

  251. vanitasvitae

    Actually I have one more topic that we could talk about: An Entity Capabilities equivalent with support for offline devices.

  252. jonas’

    Account Capabilities?

  253. jonas’

    I recall that this was discussed in past events.

  254. adiaholic has joined

  255. Zash

    publish disco#info to PEP?

  256. jonas’

  268. jonas’

    since pubsub has everything

  269. Zash

  352. vanitasvitae


  353. Kev

    Not Electron

  354. jonas’

    The UI framework is Avalonie UI

  356. vanitasvitae

    it's quite fine now, a bit low, but understandable

  362. kris

    Ah, crossplatform, but c# and .Net

  363. kris

    Linux client runs with mono?

  364. Link Mauve

    kris, .NET Core might be another option.

  365. kris

    not sure if this is your problem, but it wouldn't give me audio unless I granted it the microphone permission goffi

    it was working before, but not anymore with Chromium. I've switched to Qutebrowser, and it works again, for whatever reason.

  388. moparisthebest

    I'm using Firefox

  389. goffi

    didn't worked for me with Firefox, even after disabling most extensions. It's stay locked on "connecting".

    otoh we could introduce them with the same mechanisms we discussed for annotated bookmarks

  421. Intosi


  422. flow

    could *potentially* introduce them

    so from the agenda I thought the talk was going to be about a non-MIX alternative, but it seems like it's just about MIX again?

    Kev: <item jid='romeo@example.net'> <channel xmlns='urn:xmpp:mix:roster:0' participant-id='123456'/> <identity xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info' category='conference' type='mix'/> </item>

  425. hantu.sc

    "The id of the message is the ID from the MAM archive and NOT the id used by the sender."

  426. dwd@dave.cridland.net

    moparisthebest, We actually have two different items here. This is "MIX - When?"

  427. flow

    I'd really love to see the annotations in a common specified container element, akin to what was discussed wrt bookmarks. Something like: <item jid='romeo@example.net'> <server-annotation xmlns='jabber:iq:roster:annotation'> <channel xmlns='urn:xmpp:mix:roster:0' participant-id='123456'/> <identity xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info' category='conference' type='mix'/> </server-annotation> </item>

  428. flow

    Then we could potentially even get rid of the extension of the standard roster request with <annotate xmlns='urn:xmpp:mix:roster:0'/>
