XSF Discussion - 2018-01-15

    moparisthebest, ah yes, the double vs. single quote thing alwyas gets em

  2. jonasw

    moparisthebest, ah yes, the double vs. single quote thing always gets me.

  3. jonasw

    the style guide says to use single quotes, but I always use double quotes normally, so I have to adapt there

  4. jonasw

    moparisthebest, regarding the overlap: you can use multiple attributes in a single span, so you’d break the spans up

  5. jonasw

    (and yes, multiple attributes as children, exactly as you say)

  6. jonasw

    block level markup is everything which is not a span

  7. vanitasvitae

    jonasw, in that case there has to go some more thoughts into how overlap works with for example lists and code blocks.

  8. vanitasvitae

    For now I just do very basic checks, but I assume a user could break something if they for example have a list which is overlapping with a quote for example. In that case I wouldn't know how to render that right away.

  9. vanitasvitae

    ah forget that, overlap is not allowed :D

  10. jonasw

    also, sorry, moparisthebest that you got all the highlights, I confused you two

  11. SouL

    Hi guys, shouldn't the summit be listed on this list? https://fosdem.org/2018/fringe/ I think it would be interesting to have it there.

  12. mathieui

    SouL, no, it came up on list or here already

  13. mathieui

    and the conclusion was that having it in the fringe list would be misleading

  14. mathieui

    people who are interested in discovering XMPP are better off coming to the booth in the weekend

  15. mathieui

    and people who know enough that the summit would be relevant for them, already know about it

  16. SouL

    Hmmm, ok. Not sure if I'm fine with that but it's ok.

  17. SouL

    Thanks mathieui :)

  18. Ge0rG

    SouL: the summit doesn't make any sense to people who haven't developed for xmpp

  19. SamWhited

    I absolutely think it should be there; we need more people, pulling them in and showing them what we do seems like a good way to do that. Also, this would attract the people who develop XMPP related things but don't know about or aren't part of the XSF (there are always a lot of XSF talks by names you probably don't see on the mailing list at FOSDEM)

  20. SamWhited

    We have a pretty serious marketing problem, doing little things like this seems like a good way to help bring in more people.

  21. SouL

    Ge0rG, but for example, I discovered that Fringe thing because Godot guys (a free software game engine that I follow or used to follow intensively) are listed there, for the GodotCon

  22. SouL

    Why not us?

  23. SouL

    This could lead to some people to go to the XMPP Wikipedia page and read about it

  24. SouL

    and maybe try to meet some people later on, at FOSDEM

  25. SouL

    and get interested, etc.

  26. SouL

    Is like saying that GodotCon should not be there because is not interesting to people that is not developing games, or whatever.

  27. SouL

    I didn't want to reopen this discussion since, as mathieui mentioned earlier, it seems it has been discussed already, so I apologise for that.

  28. Ge0rG

    I'm sure there are logs of that discussion, from last board meeting?

  29. Ge0rG

    I've got no strong opinion in either direction
