  147. edhelas

    hello everyone, I'm having a look at https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0369.html it's quite interesting but I'm wondering how all theses subscriptions will be listed for the clients

  148. edhelas

    to display the "subscribed rooms"

  149. Kev

    edhelas: You'd combine it with the pubsub-account stuff that dwd's working on.

  150. edhelas

    Kev, you have a link for it ?

  151. Kev

    Dave wrote a mail to standards@ with an outline, but there's no XEP yet.

  152. edhelas will search the email

  153. Kev

    The 'how do you tell what you're subscribed to' is a generic pubsub problem without the pubsub-account stuff, but MIX combined with pubsub-account is going to be rather nice.

    What should one use for an namespace not related to an XEP? xmlns='http://projectname.org'? xmlns='projectname.org'?

  164. intosi has joined

  165. MattJ

    You can do, yes

  166. intosi has joined

  167. MattJ

    You might want to use "http://projectname.org/something"

  168. MattJ

    so you can have different values for different protocols

  169. ThUnD3r|Gr33n has left

  170. Flow

    MattJ: I do wonder how important the scheme is

  171. Flow

    especially in times of https everywhere

  172. Zash

    Flow: It's an opaque string

  173. Flow

    Zash: i wonder how opaque it is, there is http://www.iana.org/assignments/xml-registry/xml-registry.xhtml

  174. Jake1984 has joined

  175. Flow

    but I can't find any rules or an registration for "urn:xmpp" which is used by todays XEPs

  176. foss81405971 has joined

  177. Flow

    nor any saying that all strings with the "urn:xmpp:" belong to the XSF

  178. Zash

    That seems to be the IETFs namespaces

  179. Flow

    so I assume it's just convention and a requirement

    re: https://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/content-types.html I don’t like it much, but if this is required for something, it would be nice to have a disco that actually tells which content-types are supported

  269. mathieui

    instead of sending useless data that will be discarded by the other party

  270. Zash


  271. Zash

    Eg <feature var="urn:xmpp:content#text/plain"/> etc?

  272. Zash

  283. goffi

    I don't like it neither, it will bring more fragmentation

  284. goffi

    we use markdown and we convert to XHTML, but what should I do if somebody use markdown as text? Use XHTML version or text?

  285. goffi

    and probably other formats will come, other flavour of markdown

  286. bjc has left

  287. MattJ


  288. Zash

    MattJ: What about the JSON container XEP?

  289. MattJ

    Machine-to-machine, not IM

  290. MattJ

    Humans are good at interpreting the same data, in different formats, in the same way

  291. MattJ

    i.e. XHTML-IM vs Markdown vs plain text with no markdown, are all going to be slightly different but still readable

  292. MattJ

    The user's client does not need to know the difference

  293. Zash

    I kinda thougt they wanted XHTML-IM without XHTML-IM, by having the receiving client render it from Markdown

  294. MattJ

    I think so

  295. MattJ

    Which implies having multiple formats for conveying formatted text on the wire

  296. MattJ

    > 17:38:33 MattJ> I really don't like it

  297. Zash

    Same could be said about XHTML-IM :)

  298. Zash

    Or well, sorta

  299. MattJ

    We have plain, and we have formatted

  300. Zash

    Weirdness happens if they have different actual content

  301. MattJ

    Markdown can be both, but it's not a third category

  302. xnyhps

    > Every XMPP Extension Protocol specification must contain a section entitled "Security Considerations"

  303. moparisthebest

    add to that no 2 clients would use the same parser and would end up with wildly different displayed representations

  304. Zash

    There can be only Pandoc!

  305. MattJ

    (Zash is currently in love with pandoc)

  306. bjc has joined

  307. moparisthebest

    that'd be my preference but someone would complain that it's not a standard and has a license they don't like :)

  308. moparisthebest

    personally I don't want instant messages long enough to require formatting, but I understand there are different use cases

    Particularly that there was one ineligible application this year ;)

  343. Kev

    So, if the Aloft doesn't have any rooms left for XSF people, should we be thinking of being elsewhere?

  344. foss81405971 has joined

  345. SamWhited

    What makes someone ineligible?

  346. SamWhited

    I don't even understand the point of membership except to prevent someone from skewing a vote by having all their friends vote

  347. Kev

    SamWhited: Dave didn't include email address/JID. Presumably deliberately because the XEP didn't get advanced, or such.

  348. Kev

    According to the wiki, almost no-one has booked the Aloft, which suggests, given there were no rooms when Tobi just tried to book, that the majority of people won't be able to be there.

  349. Zash

    Or, the majority of people haven't updated that page

  350. Kev

    Or that.

    Kev, if the wiki page represents the reality, that is :)

    intosi, yup..thu - sun is...but who knows how many :) but at the current time it'll probably be the same everywhere

    Brussels in that weekend can be a bit of a challenge this late.
