  131. vanitasvitae has left

  132. vanitasvitae has joined

  133. Ge0rG

    If the sent message begins with the reflected message, followed by a newline, this must be a reflection from a "MUC" that splits multi-line messages. Yikes.

    edhelas: that in-joke won't work for long any more

  150. SouL

    Haha :)

  151. Ge0rG

    unless we can convince the editors to skip over 404

  152. Ge0rG

    Or, even better, somebody prepares a Humorous "XEP-404: XEP Not Found" that will be put into the queue at the right moment

  153. Dave Cridland

    Ge0rG, That's literally what I was in the process of typing.

  154. Ge0rG

    Dave Cridland: that proposal or that XEP?

  155. Dave Cridland

  211. zinid

    vanitasvitae knows how to fight spam!

  212. zinid


  213. Guus

    there's a XEP that describes that...

  214. Ge0rG

    I've asked for that feature a year ago, or maybe two, too :)

  215. zinid

    what feature? rendering captchas?

  216. zinid

    and why a client cannot generate captchas on its own?

  217. moparisthebest has joined

  218. Ge0rG

    zinid: why should the client do that? what do you do with multiple clients?

  219. Ge0rG

    zinid: do you have to solve a captcha for each of my clients? I have five or six

  220. Guus

    XEP-0159 I think

  221. zinid

    Ge0rG, ah, I see

  222. Guus

    allowing a server to respond with a challenge to potential spimmers (and keeping track of who is or is not a potential spimmer)

  223. zinid

    well, this is trivial to implement in ejabberd

  224. jonasw

    {xep 0159}

  225. Bunneh

    jonasw: Spim-Blocking Control (Standards Track, Deferred, 2006-07-11) See: https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0159.html

  226. zinid

    the question is what client will support this?

  227. Ge0rG


  228. Guus

    zinid: as soon as you build it, pretty much every client :)

  229. zinid

    Guus, I built it for IBR ages ago, still only minority of clients support it

  230. Guus

    I assume that's because IBR is either not used as much, or used in a more 'trusted' setting (of an internal network).

  231. jubalh has joined

  232. Guus

    if it's easy for you to build, please consider adding it, at least as a configurable option?

  233. Guus

    it'll surely not hurt the spim battle.

  234. Ge0rG

    0159 depends on Privacy Lists, which are deprecated.

  235. Guus

    eternal fame will be your part.

  236. Ge0rG

    I have two dozens of pending subscription requests

  237. Ge0rG

    PARS should also be able to pass through that captcha

  238. vanitasvitae

    The way I imagine it doesnt require client support

  239. Guus

    vanitasvitae: surely, the initiator's client should support it?

  240. Ge0rG

    vanitasvitae: please add a remark regarding PARS

  241. vanitasvitae

    Ge0rG: what is pars?

  242. vanitasvitae

    Guus: nope, it could be implemented purely server side

  243. Guus

    vanitasvitae: at some point, a person needs to verify that there's a person, not a spambot. Where does that happen?

  244. xnyhps has joined

  245. moparisthebest has joined

  246. SouL

    vanitasvitae, do you mean solving the captcha in the browser?

  247. vanitasvitae

    > https://github.com/processone/ejabberd/issues/2246

  248. SouL

    jabber.ru used to do that

  249. zinid

    SouL, for joining rooms, yes, that's standard ejabberd's feature

  250. zinid

    but you only need to solve it in browser if you have retarded client

  251. zinid

    normal clients render captcha just fine

  252. SouL

    Yeah, what I tried to say is that a link is provided too heh ^^

  253. zinid


  254. Guus

    oh, right. Yeah, I'd also see the 'open link in browser' as a fallback for clients that are not compliant.

  255. Ge0rG

    vanitasvitae: PARS is https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0379.html

  256. zinid

    vanitasvitae, ok, I have assigned the issue to myself, will see what I can do

  308. Ge0rG

    Dave Cridland: there is still the technical challenge of not hosting the new XEP under xep-0404.html (leading zero)

  309. jonasw

    Ge0rG, I’m sure we can put a redirect from xep-404.html to xep-0404.html :)

  310. Ge0rG

    jonasw: the other way 'round would make more sense.

  311. jonasw

    and also be much more tricky

  312. jonasw

    I don’t want to mess with editor tooling on that level.

  313. Ge0rG

    don't think so

  314. jonasw

    maybe if it’s done at the end of the build stage

  315. Ge0rG

    jonasw: we could make XEP-404 work as a generic error page and serve it as that, then just blacklist 404.

  316. Ge0rG

    jonasw: wouldn't it suffice to create a xep-404.xml and build that?

  317. jonasw

    yeah, and then all tooling breaks because it expects filenames to have xep-%04d.html format.

  318. Ge0rG

    how is the "next autoincrement value to be used" determined?

  319. jonasw

    yeah, and then all tooling breaks because it expects filenames to have xep-%04d.xml format.

  320. jonasw

    max(accepted_xeps.keys()), actually

  321. Ge0rG

    a rewrite rule on the server, that doesnt do 30x

  322. Ge0rG

    hm. oka

  323. Ge0rG


  324. jonasw

    yeah, that’d work of course

  325. jonasw

    that’s kinda what I meant by redirect :)

  326. winfried has joined

  327. jonasw

    Ge0rG, https://github.com/xsf/xeps/blob/master/tools/accept.py#L78 to be specific ;)

  328. jonasw

    but that can easily be overridden once to avoid 404 to be created when 403 is the newest one.

  329. Ge0rG

    jonasw: I'm sure max() will work out properly if there is a xep-404

  330. jonasw

    (FWIW, I would’ve preferred to avoid relying on %04d, but taking all XML or xep-*.xml files in the directory did wrong things because of templates and such)

    I noticed that the copyright in the XEP page headers is still "© 1999 – 2017 XMPP Standards Foundation. SEE LEGAL NOTICES."

  336. jonasw

    do we want this to be "1999 – 2018" on all the xeps?

  337. Ge0rG

    jonasw: yes please

  338. Ge0rG

    But you might want to get Board approval for that.

  339. SamWhited

    nah, then it'll sort as 404 not 260 and be way higher than the other xeps (assuming python where leading 0 is octal)

  340. jonasw

    SamWhited, not in python3 anymore ;)

  341. jonasw

    (in python3, 0123 is simply syntax error)

  342. SamWhited

    oh, weird

  343. SamWhited

    nothing to do here then

  344. jonasw

    SamWhited, would you be more in favour of #559 if it were a separate XEP?

  345. nyco has left

  346. SamWhited

    I'm not sure, I need to think over how the change will affect things (assuming that's the muc change)

  347. jonasw

    yah, it’s the MUC change

  348. Ge0rG

    This is not PHP, where "0280" parses as 2.

  363. nyco


  364. Guus


  365. MattJ

    nyco, then I suggest you use a different server/client, otherwise it will be hard to participate...

  366. MattJ

    I'm here

  367. Martin

    I'm here

  368. nyco

    it would be nice if XMPP worked fine...

  369. MattJ

    Working fine for me, but anyway...

  370. nyco

    for me

  371. ralphm

    Full house, splendid

  372. nyco

    it seems you don't receive my messages in one-to-one chat

  373. Guus

    (that's a first, I think?)

  374. ralphm

    Any additional topics for the agenda?

  375. MattJ

    None here

  376. jonasw

    ralphm, yeah, whether I shall update the copyright notice on XEPs with this year.

  377. jjrh has left

  378. jonasw

    (it currently reads "© 1999 – 2017")

  379. Guus

  380. nyco

    please add the card

  381. jjrh has left

  382. ralphm

    I don't think copyrights work like that

  383. jonasw

    I have no idea either

  384. jonasw

    but having not the current year there looks weird

  385. jonasw

    cf. https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0301.html

  386. ralphm

    ok, putting that in later

  387. Guus

    (not sure if that's up to board?)

  388. jjrh has left

  389. jonasw

    Guus, me neither, but it feels boardish

  390. jonasw

    (and Ge0rG from council said so :))

  391. ralphm

    1. Board priorities

  392. ralphm

    I believe we still need to schedule a video conference on this, no?

  393. nyco


  394. nyco

    that's on me

  395. nyco

    when's best? time day of week what week?

  396. Guus

    let's schedule that via mail?

  397. nyco

    maybe not this week, nor next

  398. nyco


  399. nyco

    I'll send a poll

  400. ralphm


  401. MattJ


  402. nyco

    if I had your nogo, that could help

  403. nyco

    if any

  404. Guus

    perhaps combine with summit?

  405. nyco

    good question

  406. ralphm

    Guus: this was indeed suggested, but one of us isn't going to be there physically

  407. nyco

    I feel like those discussions would benefit a lot from members but I fear the crowd will be too large for everyone to be heard

  408. Guus

    ralphm: perhaps one joining in remotely?

  409. ralphm


  410. nyco

    that said, this discussion would also benefit from non-members, that is the rest of the world

  411. Guus

    nyco: to clarify, I was not suggesting to discuss this during the summit itself, but in the evening or something.

  412. Guus

    wiht just board members.

  413. ralphm

    Let's continue this on list then

  414. nyco

    that's two more hours of work, I guess people wanna have beer

  415. Guus

    on list. :)

    2. Bus Factor Bank Account

  418. ralphm

    Did you discuss this last week?

  419. nyco


  420. Guus

    I still would like to know what the bank procedures are on this. Haven't talked to Peter about this in a couple of weeks though.

  421. ralphm

    So we need to track him down on that, ok.

  422. Guus

    if bank procedures are adequate, I'd prefer not to add individuals.

  423. ralphm nods

  424. ralphm

    3. Copyright statements on XEPs

  425. Dave Cridland

    My suggestion on copyrights would be to claim the present year always.

  426. Guus

    if all our current XEPs list an end date in 2017, I'd simply update that to 2018.

  427. ralphm


  428. Guus

    that said: I'm not sure how these are supposed to work.

  429. ralphm

    I think that's usual practice. Whether it holds up in court is another mattre.

  430. ralphm


  431. Dave Cridland

    ralphm, It only matters after what, 75 years? I think we're safe.

  432. ralphm

    Dave Cridland: :-D

  433. Dave Cridland

    ralphm, Might want to make a note to revisit after we're all dead.

  434. Guus

    I'd say: make it 2018.

  435. ralphm


  436. ralphm

    4. AOB

  437. Dave Cridland

    Summit status?

  438. nyco


  439. Guus

    You're leaving out the items for discussion?

  440. nyco

    I need to book the dinner

  441. nyco

    same place as usual? auberge bretonne?

  442. nyco

    if no opposition, I'm on it

  443. Guus

    works for me.

  444. nyco

    consider it done

  445. nyco

    what else?

  446. Dave Cridland

    I suggested to Guus that we might want to specifically seek out people to invite. The Google open source office people might be around, for example.

  447. Guus

    financials-wise, I have questions

  448. andrzej has joined

  449. Guus

    Ah, I thought you ment to invite our GSoC students.

  450. Guus

    but yeah, I'd be in favour of both.

  451. MattJ


  452. Dave Cridland

    There's probably other folks we might invite, if we think about it. Maybe even the Matrix folks. If only so we can stick them with the bill.

  453. ralphm


  454. nyco

    good idea, they may already have a plan, they got a company, a community

  455. nyco

    but yeah we can merge

  456. ralphm

    anything else here?

  457. nyco

    any RTC

  458. nyco


  459. Guus

    Shall I extend the invitation to Google?

  460. ralphm

    Guus: please do

  461. Guus

    + students?

  462. nyco


  463. nyco

    we gotta keep the number acceptable

  464. Guus

    students are two persons.

  465. daniel has joined

  466. nyco

    so that I book without a too large error margin

  467. nyco

    ok,Google? Matrix? How many?

  468. SaltyBones

    Oh, are people going to fosdem?

  469. Guus

    (well, three, but I'm guessing one is not coming)

  470. Guus

    I'll extend just to Google, and ask for attendance numbers.

  471. MattJ

    SaltyBones, yes, people are going to FOSDEM

  472. Dave Cridland

    SaltyBones, Lots of people, and for two days before as well.

  473. SaltyBones

    Can I join some of your meetings?

  474. ralphm


  475. ralphm

    SaltyBones: have a look there

  476. Dave Cridland

    SaltyBones, Please do.

  477. Guus

    I'd like to have us address the financials for a bit

  478. ralphm

    Guus: shoot

  479. Martin

    Agreed Guus

  480. Guus

    a) apart from a van, we have no sponsors

  481. Guus

    b) see Matt's mail from earlier today

  482. Guus

    XSF will cover the diner, I assume. Will it also cover lunch at Cisco?

  483. ralphm

    If there's no sponsors, I believe we should, yes.

  484. ralphm

    Of course I'd prefer companies stepping up for sponsorship.

  485. Guus

    We could have individuals pay for themselves, but I'd prefer not to.

  486. nyco

    I'll try mine

  487. Guus

    Does the XSF also cover transportation to/from the dinner?

  488. MattJ

    Generally, yes

  489. jjrh has left

  490. Dave Cridland

    Guus, Traditionally, yes.

  491. Guus

    (and, obviously, I'd prefer sponsorship, but if we cant find any...)

  492. Guus

    ok, thanks

  493. Guus

    I'll try to figure out how this works with Lunch at Cisco, offline.

  494. jjrh has left

  495. Guus

    nyco, you were going to arrange for dinner transportation, correct?

  496. ralphm

    It is easy really

  497. ralphm

    We pay at the register

  498. ralphm

    dinner transportation is generally a few cabs

  499. ralphm

    of course they'd have to be called in time

  500. jjrh has left

  501. Kev

    And generally what happens is that individuals (often Isode) end up paying for the cabs.

  502. Kev

    Which might not work so well this year.

  503. Guus

    we don't have an XSF credit/debit card I think, so someone will have to front?

  504. nyco

    Guus yes

  505. nyco

    Uber? taxi? coach?

  506. Guus

    I have no preference for a type of transportation.

  507. Dave Cridland

    We should arrange something ahead of time, after last year.

  508. nyco

    running will do, then

  509. nyco

    tell me your preferences

  510. ralphm

    Anyway, in terms of sponsorship for the Summit, we could write an e-mail asking for sponsorship, like we did last time

  511. nyco

    email written to ESL

  512. MattJ

    For what it's worth, I don't think it's ever been difficult for us to find sponsors - all we need to do is ask

  513. ralphm

    For the more general topic, maybe we should discuss this next week in person

  514. ralphm

    MattJ: right

  515. ralphm

    I'll write that e-mail

  516. ralphm

    anything else?

  517. Guus

    (not from me)

  518. nyco


  519. Guus

    please look at the commitment list? :)

    there has been an Item For Discussion on Trello that has gone undiscussed: the surveying thing

  524. Guus

    can we either discuss or archive that?

  525. Guus


  526. ralphm

    Indeed, it's been there for a few weeks, and I thought it would be part of the general priorities discussion

  527. ralphm

    Does that make sense?

  528. nyco


  529. Guus

    might be a chicken/egg type of deal, but, sure.

  530. nyco

    a lot of effort, for what result?

  531. nyco

    if someone commits to this, thx, I will provide some support

  539. daniel has left

  544. Guus

    I'd at the very least would want to be attending the summit at that hour

  545. ralphm

    So I propose we do our next normal meeting in 2 weeks

  546. MattJ

    I'm inclined to agree

  547. Guus

    perhaps we could do the prio thingy in the sidelines of the summit, but for the regular meeting, +2w would be my preference.

  548. Martin

    +2W sounds good to me

  549. ralphm

  603. SouL

    jonasw: if a XEP that has been deferred gets an implementation, will become again draft at least? Do you know?

  604. jonasw

    SouL, no

  605. jonasw

    it won’t

  606. SouL


  607. jonasw

    the state transition is Experimental -> Deferred, not Draft -> Deferred

  608. jonasw

    to get a XEP from Deferred to Experimental, all it needs is an update by the author

  609. jonasw

    (non-editoral update)

  610. SouL

    What if it does not need any update?

  611. jonasw

    then the author can ask council to move it to Draft

  612. jonasw

    for this it needs to pass through Last Call

  613. SouL

    Ah ok!

  614. jonasw

    I don’t think that Draft needs to have implementations technically, but council will like it if it does

  615. SouL

    I will and then ask again..

  616. SouL


  617. jonasw

    but advancing a XEP to Draft without implementations is likely to be a bad move; without implementations, there’s no deployment experience and there will likely be issues which should be fixed before Draft

  618. SouL

    Sorry jonasw, I said Draft but I wanted do say Experimental

  619. SouL

    So Experimental -> Deferred -> Experimental

  620. SouL

    My bad for causing confusion

  621. SouL

    I guess the case would be the same, vote again, like a ProtoXEP?

  622. jonasw

    SouL, I gave you some feedback :)

  623. jonasw

    (on list)

  624. jonasw

    no, Deferred -> Experimental is purely procedural (just like Experimental -> Deferred) and does not need a vote.

  625. jonasw

    if the author publishes an update on a Deferred XEP, it automatically becomes Experimental again, no vote needed.

  630. Guus has left

  631. zinid

    is processing hints supposed to be deferred?

  632. jonasw

    zinid, it was experimental before, it hasn’t been updated in 12 months, it gets deferred

  633. jonasw

    there was some discussion around deprecating it, but I don’t think there has been a vote

  634. jonasw

    SouL, you’re welcome! I didn’t see it when it went Experimental

  635. zinid

    jonasw, I know that it is deferred due to inactivity, I just wonder what council think about it

  636. jonasw

    SouL, so this automated status change to Deferred is a good thing; it reminds the community that the XEP exists and something should be done about it.

  637. jonasw

    zinid, we’ll see

  638. zinid

    yes, deferring due to inactivity is a good idea

    has anyone done anything like uh, imap over xmpp

  703. jonasw

    moparisthebest, I think Salut á Toi has something along those lines

  704. Zash

    in what sense?

  705. jonasw

    more like XMPP over imap though

  706. moparisthebest

    well, my phone currently keeps 2 TCP connections open/idle, XMPP and IMAP IDLE

  707. moparisthebest

    it would be handy if the xmpp app just passed new messages to the email app, and I only needed 1 connection :)

  708. Zash

    Tunnel them both over ssh

  709. jonasw

    moparisthebest, why do you care?

  710. Zash

    Didn't GTalk have some protocol for notifying about new messages?

  711. moparisthebest

    doesn't really solve the problem, imap idle has to refresh the connection every so often etc

  712. moparisthebest

    jonasw, yea to be honest it's basically not a problem, just wondered if it'd been done before, I'm always surprised by random XEPs

  713. goffi

    jonasw: yes I know, it's not stable release yet, it will be done then

  714. jonasw

    goffi, maybe a bad move to announce it on HN then?

  715. jonasw

    but that’s just me

  716. goffi

    SamWhited: planing to write a tutorial too, but it takes time (and I have a paid job not related to XMPP)

  717. goffi

    moparisthebest: yes, we have SMTP and IMAP, not as a gateway but client side (to use Thunderbird to read your XMPP messages)

  718. moparisthebest

    ah the opposite, still interesting goffi

  719. goffi

    note that it was before than Thunderbird actually read XMPP ;)

  720. goffi

    jonasw: well Show HN is exactly for that if I understood correctly

  721. goffi

    stuff advanced enough to try, but not necessarly finished and production ready

  722. goffi

    any way when I post to HN I don't expect it to reach first page :)

  723. jonasw

    goffi, I don’t visit HN, so I have no idea :)

  724. moparisthebest

    it might be interesting to just replace sending and recieving in an email client with doing that over xmpp (which at server side would just shove it off to a real imap/smtp server)

  725. jonasw

    moparisthebest, no, it would not

  726. jonasw

    you would always incur the factor 4/3 for base64-ing things

  727. jonasw

    unless you map mime to xmpp with SHIM, whihc probably has its own set of interesting issues

  728. moparisthebest

    it's all text based, why not shove it through un-encoded?

  729. jonasw

    I /think/ that you can do 8-bit things in SMTP

  730. goffi

    oh actually it's first in "show" section (https://news.ycombinator.com/show)

  731. jonasw

    moparisthebest, also, SMTP and IMAP are octet-based

  732. jonasw

    not text-based

  733. jonasw

    (like XML is)

  734. goffi

    moparisthebest: there is an email gateway somewhere in my TODO list

  735. jonasw

    at least on the layer the application sees, XMPP is text-based (it has a well-defined encoding everywhere). in email, there’s no such thing (see the hacks you need to do to get unicode into a subject line)

  736. moparisthebest

    jonasw, I mean you can send emails via SMTP with telnet, text based enough

  737. jonasw

    of course, all of this could be solved in one way or another (e.g. by fully mapping MIME into XML somehow)

  738. Link Mauve

    SMTP at least is not octet-based, it’s ASCII-based.

  739. jonasw

    moparisthebest, telnet is byte-based too

  740. Link Mauve

    You can’t use more than 7 bits per octet.

  741. jonasw

    you can, with the 8BIT extension; but that’s not my point, really

  742. moparisthebest

    it reads lines one by one etc etc

  743. Link Mauve

    Hence the encoding monsters.

  744. moparisthebest

    I think it'd be fairly straightforward, not sure

  745. jonasw

    moparisthebest, that’s not text-based ;)

  746. moparisthebest

    version #1 would just replace imap idle for push notifications

  747. moparisthebest

    over xmpp

  748. goffi

    and commented by edhelas from Movim. But we didn't made a video to show how it's cool and never seen before :D

    Link Mauve, Actually, IMAP is 8-bit clean, and ESMTP normally is with the extension. Both can also transfer binary (instead of, say, UTF-8) with (rare) extensions.

  781. uc has joined

    There's also a bunch of extensions to "Always UTF-8", roughly, as part of EAI, as I recall.
