XMPP Summit - 2024-01-29


  1. Andrzej

    Arne, I was forced to change my travel plans and transportation due to car malfunction 4 days before summit. So it will not be possible for me to give you a lift

  2. emus

    Oh no

  3. Arne

    Andrzej: Can you still go to Brussel? I'm not sure if it makes sense if we take my car but from Bremen

  4. Andrzej

    I can. I just need to go back to Poland to leave the car and I’ll fly directly to Brussels as it will be the fastest way for me now.

  5. Andrzej

    So no worries. I will get to the summit and FOSDEM

  6. Intosi

    Excellent timing: farmers are expected to protest in Brussels because of a summit that day.

  7. Kev

    What have we done?

  8. pep.

    Not cared enough about farmers for decades (and workers for that matter) :)

    I am driving form Germany (Stuttgart) region if somone needs a ride

  10. Kev

    I had no idea the XSF had such an effect on farmers.

    By the way, I was wondering if you need some camera/microphones to stream the summit ? I'll not be there at the beginning on Thursday (arriving around 11am), but I have a DSLR + tripod + powerplug adapter + microphone

  15. edhelas

    Might be better than a 720p Logitech camera

  16. edhelas

    It's pretty simple to mount it as a webcam on Linux

  19. ralphm

    Yes, but I'll also happily accept edhelas' offer.

  21. edhelas

    The summit online pad doesn't seems to work for me

  23. Alex

    do we have a dinner reservation already?

  24. ralphm

    I'm working on this today. This slipped my attention due to my father's illness and subsequent passing and funeral.

  25. Kev

    Condolences, Ralph. Sorry to hear that.

  26. ralphm

    Haven't been able to get them on the phone yet.

  27. ralphm

    Thanks Kev

  28. emus

    ralphm: I can take it over if you want to

  29. goffi

    sorry to read that ralphm, condolences.

  30. ralphm

    emus: Even though there's still a bunch to do, I am back to work and will try to get this done. They should be open today between 12:00 and 14:00 CET, but they haven't picked up the phone yet.

  31. emus

    Okay, alright. let me know if you change your mind

  32. Kev

    I've got issues getting about at the moment, so (assuming I'm able to get to Brussels on Wednesday) I'll put myself as a 'no' for the dinner just in case I'm in a position of being better off staying within the hotel.

  33. Kev

    Although having done that, every chance I'm moving around fine come Thursday and I regret it, but oh well.

  34. ralphm

    If there's anything we can do to accommodate you, I'd be happy to.

  35. Kev

    Thanks Ralph, it's a minor thing in the grand scheme.

  36. Kev

    I've just realised I don't think I've seen any mail on the summit list this year. Has there been any?

  37. Daniel

    > I've just realised I don't think I've seen any mail on the summit list this year. Has there been any? On the fact that the summit is happening?

  38. Kev

    I mean I've not seen any mails from the summit list.

  39. Daniel

    I think 1 or 2 people used it to request a wiki account

  40. Kev

    Just checking there isn't stuff happening there that I'm not receiving for some reason.

  42. Daniel

    For example. From 4 days ago

  43. Kev

    Thanks. Guess I've been unsubscribed, although no idea why that would be.

  44. Daniel

    ralphm: If the usual dinner location is unavailable or unresponsive we could try to make arrangements with the Thon (not sure how much notice they would need)

  45. Daniel

    I mean we are already on site anyway...

  46. Alex

    Sorry to hear Ralph, my condolences. Let us know when there is anything we can help with

  47. edhelas

    My condoleances as well, sorry to hear that.

  48. edhelas

    Regarding the summit, as I don't have access to the pad for now, there's no specific topic set for the moment regarding what could be discussed during the two days ?

  49. Daniel

    We usually collect topic ideas during the first 30 minutes or so

  50. edhelas

    Okay :)

  51. Daniel

    Feel free to add them to the wiki (I think that wiki page has a topics section too)

  52. Daniel

    But either way we will go over the list (and other suggestions) at the beginning

  53. ralphm

    Daniel: right. I have sent them an e-mail, though. Keeping an eye on it.

  54. ralphm

    I just sent out an e-mail on the XSF Dinner to the Members and Summit mailing lists. Please respond before 20:00 UTC tomorrow!

  55. Arne

    Thanks ralphm!

  56. emus

    👍️

  57. edhelas

    Looks like ralphm is recommending the Dame Blanche 🍨

  58. ralphm

    As always

  59. emus

    Hi, Did anyone produce or plans to produce any promotion material or handouts?

  60. Intosi

    Thank you for sorting this out, Ralph.

  61. Arne

    > Hi, > > Did anyone produce or plans to produce any promotion material or handouts? Hi, just different stickers and some few USB-Sticks.

  62. ralphm

    👍

  63. emus

    I'm just collecting to see what I can do before the Fosdem and dont do it twice but I have also printed some stickers and buttons already + the stuff that we have left
