  342. Ge0rG

    Dear XSF. We should write a blog post about how XMPP is the right solution to what's asked for by German Minsiter of Justice Katarina Barley regarding the opening of WhatsApp and other messengers.

  343. Ge0rG

    I'd volunteer the text, but who's the right person to approve that? comms team?

  344. jonasw

    Ge0rG, write the blogpost

  345. jonasw

    comms and possibly board

  346. rishiraj22 has left

  347. rishiraj22 has left

  348. Ge0rG

    "possibly board" frightens me.

  349. Guus has left

  350. Ge0rG

    I wouldn't be surprised if Board would decide that we can not promote XMPP because that wouldn't be neutral against other open IM protocols like SIP and Matrix.

  351. jonasw

    come on

  352. MattJ

    Ge0rG, I can't tell if you're just saying things like that to be provocative, or whether you really believe them. In either case I think it's sad

  353. Zash


  354. jubalh has joined

  355. MattJ

    I know you want the same thing as I do, and I am also sad Pidgin is listed, but there is still no proposal as to any criteria by which it should be removed

  356. nyco has left

  357. MattJ

    I explicitly included a question about implementation neutrality in the members survey to try and resolve this kind of issue as well

  358. MattJ

    It will be one of the things we talk about in the next board meeting probably, but at a glance opinion is very divided, no clear consensus

  359. jonasw

    classic :)

  360. MattJ

    I believe, as others have concluded also, that the XSF is simply not the right vehicle for promoting XMPP to end users

  361. Wiktor

    Just out of curiosity, what is/would be the right vehicle?

  362. MattJ

    Anything from a group of like-minded people with free time, to a completely new foundation

  363. Alex has left

  364. MattJ

    I have some stuff I have been working on, which I gave a talk about at FOSDEM a few years ago

  365. Ge0rG

    Wiktor: we need a Jabber Software Foundation

  366. Wiktor

    Yes, but with s/Jabber/XMPP/... ;)

  367. MattJ

    s/Jabber/Brand name without trademark/

  368. Ge0rG

    except that "we" can't even decide whether "Jabber™" is burned due to a huge trademark minefield, or still the right term

  369. Wiktor

    Remember to use "Open", something like "Open Communications Alliance"

  370. Ge0rG

    Wiktor: "Jabber" is to "XMPP" what "Email" is to "SMTP+IMAP"

  371. Ge0rG

    "Open" is so f***ing burned.

  372. Wiktor

    I didn't know email was a registered trademark :(

  373. Wiktor

    maybe jabber got so popular that the trademark would not hold... but I don't want to be the one to check it out :)

  374. Ge0rG

    Wiktor: do you have better suggestions for a word that's assosicated with a worldwide federated IM network?

  375. jonasw

    Whats… oh you said federated

  376. Zash

    Steal "Fediverse"

  377. Wiktor

    Fediverse still has some sub-terms, like ActivityPub (protocol), Mastodon (product)

  378. Ge0rG

    Fediverse. I've heard that once or twice before.

  379. Seve/SouL

    Universal Chat

  380. Seve/SouL


  381. Seve/SouL shurgs

  382. Ge0rG

    It's got like zero percent of brand awareness of XMPP.

  383. Wiktor

    Ge0rG, are you targetting people aware of XMPP or a broader audience?

  384. jonasw

    people aware of jabber

  385. jubalh has joined

  386. Ge0rG

    I claim that sufficiently many people are aware of Jabber that we should get our in-house trademark fight solved and promote the term properly.

  387. rishiraj22 has left

  388. andy has joined

  389. MattJ

    Ge0rG, so the solutions I see to that are 1) ignore it 2) ask Cisco to make it all ok [2a) have Cisco actually make it all ok]

  390. Wiktor

    Okay, personally I don't know any person that knows jabber but doesn't know xmpp, but maybe it doesn't hold "in the wild"

  391. Ge0rG

    MattJ: ignore what?

  392. MattJ

    That there is any trademark issue

  393. MattJ

    That's pretty much what everyone has done so far

  394. Seve/SouL

    Wiktor, and who knows about jabber just says 'oh, I remember, something old'

  395. Link Mauve

    Wiktor, at least here in France, and I’ve heard in Russia too, when you go around people are talking about Jabber.

  396. MattJ


  397. MattJ

    and people who know about XMPP tend to write Jabber/XMPP anyway

  398. Link Mauve


  399. Link Mauve

    Or even just Jabber.

  400. Wiktor

    Yep, jabber is tainted with "old" and "doesn't work on mobile" in my experience :)

  401. jonasw

    Seve/SouL, when they say that, reply with "Great, something to wear at your wedding then!" and hand them a Jabber sticker

  402. Zash


  403. Wiktor

    One way or another this foundation to promote xmpp sounds like a really good idea, 👍

  404. Wiktor

    zimpy the zebra?

  405. Ge0rG

    MattJ: reading "Jabber/XMPP" hurts my eyes. every. single. time.

  406. Zash

    Ge0rG: Like GNU+Linux ?

  407. jonasw

    Ge0rG, make issues which are the opposite of what one other person is doing at the moment! https://github.com/jabbercat/jabbercat/issues/89

  408. Ge0rG

    jonasw: what? Me? Feeding the trolls?

    Why not go back to Mercurial? ;)

    I was looking to mve to another apartment, I may move to GitLab as well

  522. pep.

    Seve/SouL, good idea

  523. jonasw

    if I apply that line of thought, I need $7.5e9 now.

  524. rion

    don't go to gitlab. otherwise MS will buy it!

  525. jonasw

    go to gitlab, everyone go to gitlab, and look how MS bites it’s own shiny metal thing when all the interesting stuff is gone from GitHub :)

  526. Zash

    Random post on the fediverse said Google was a huge investor in Gitlab already

    And call it... WAVE

  537. Zash

    Ge0rG: PubSub! All the things!

  538. jonasw

    why the heck do code web view things think that the most interesting thing is the commit history?

  539. jonasw

    even years after github figured out that this is /not/ the case

  540. Ge0rG

    jonasw: the commit history is the whole pride of the developer!

  541. Kev

    jonasw: I think it depends who's viewing, actually.

  542. Kev

    But defaulting to code seems sensible to me.

  543. jonasw

    I’ve only a few times seen myself to check the commit history of a project on GitHub. And tohse times it wasn’t useful because I couldn’t skip to the point where I wanted to look. But that might just be me.

  544. Ge0rG

    I'd say the README is more important

  545. Ge0rG

    README and how old the code is

  546. jonasw

    github does it right imo

  547. Kev

    I think github does it right for github, yes.

  548. Kev

    But for our internal tools I look at commit histories of the repo more often than I look at the code through the web interface, I think.

  549. Kev

    Maybe I'm wrong about my habits.

  550. Ge0rG

    maybe you can bookmark the /commits path then ;)

  551. jonasw

    you’re not wrong about your habits :)

  552. Zash has left

  553. jonasw

    it may be useful for internal (but even in our internal gitlab I mostly look at files, not commit history; I typically have a clone already when I need commit history and look localy then)

  554. Kev

    But you don't look at the local copy for files? :)

  555. Kev

    Anyway, I think the github model is right for github at least.

  556. jonasw

    Kev, most of the time I need to link something to someone

  557. Kev


  558. Kev

    Yes, I use that for that :)

  559. jonasw

    or go for a quick reference in code which I don’t have cloned

  568. pep.

    Just like GitLab is talking about using ActivityPub for the federated thing and not xmpp

  569. jonasw

    buy microsoft shares

  570. Ge0rG

  590. pep.

    You mean marketing?

  591. edhelas

    it's good we have Pubsub for 10 years, do you see any serious projects that is using it at the moment ?

  592. edhelas

    no, not marketing, just build stuff on it

  593. edhelas

    and also integrate it in existing projects

  594. Kev

    I know of very serious projects built on pubsub, yes.

  595. pep.

    Kev, do you have examples?

  596. pep.

    public examples

    No, not that are for me to share.

    Well that's not really helping the case

  601. edhelas

    this for example https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0070.html, it's a really nice XEP, let's integrate XMPP auth in Gitlab, Wikipedia…

  602. pep.

    edhelas, sure, go go send PRs

  603. goffi

    pep.: Ge0rG: I'm indeed working on forge tools, mainly for our own needs, but with some helping hand it could become nice ==> https://www.goffi.org/b/9555cc02-6a87-4b6b-af85-20f1c0736722

  604. muppeth has joined

  605. goffi

    edhelas: are you kidding ? I'm pushing for years for XEP-0070 and other stuff, and some people have followed (Chteufleur wrote his component after talking about XEP-0070 on DLFP, jnanar followed moment after with a demo website), but not enough. And yes ActivityPub is taking over where XMPP should have been.

  606. goffi

    years before Jehan also wrote a Wordpress plugin to use XEP-0070, but once again nobody followed

  607. goffi

    and that's the same story for nearly every feature of XMPP

  608. edhelas

    goffi that's what I said, there is some nice little projects, but it's hard to get traction

  609. MattJ

    XMPP adoption is not a problem that can be solved just by writing more code

  610. goffi

    MattJ: it's a combination of code, communication and luck

  611. daniel

    And concentrated power of will

  612. goffi

    MattJ: and something like XEP-0070 is super easy to integrate everywhere with Chteufleur component, and that's a good way to popularise XMPP IMHO.

  613. Seve/SouL

    goffi: +9999

  614. pep.

    daniel, I'm trying hard

  615. goffi

    There is a popular video showing comments post on Peertube and appearing in Mastodon, and everybody is amazed. That's something we do for many years between Movim and SàT (and Jappix when it was still in the game). It's a pitty to see that, but we have missed a great occasion, and now we'll have to deal with activityPub.

  616. pep.


  617. Zash

    Marketing marketing marketing

  618. MattJ

    goffi, well, Prosody has had a Pubsubhubbub bridge for a long long time, so there's no strict reason that the two protocols can't co-exist

  619. Zash

    MattJ: ActivityPub is completely different tho

  620. goffi

    MattJ: sure they can co-exist, but we have to do gateways, it's time to develop, energy to maintain, and machine resources to do the protocol conversion

    note that ActivityPub is dead simple, it's specially formatted JSON and signed http messages

  739. Zash

    With an actor model and inboxes and whatnot.

  740. goffi

    well XMPP is specially formatted XML

  741. Wiktor

    inbox is just an endpoint that receives JSONs, "actor model" is another JSON with your name

  742. Zash

    OStatus is Atom feeds

  743. Zash

    Plain simple Atom feeds. Throw in some extra metadata. Be happy.

  744. Wiktor

    pff atom feeds, why all these brackets, twtxt is plain text files! https://rosaelefanten.org/twtxt.txt

  745. Wiktor


  746. j.r has joined

  747. Wiktor

    doesn't OStatus use PubSubHubbub?

  748. Zash


  749. Wiktor

    soo... it would be "easy" to roll an OStatus endpoint using Prosody sprinkled with some community modules?

  750. SamWhited has left

  751. Zash

    Wiktor: Yes. I had federation with GNU Social working a long time ago.

  752. Zash

    Salmon is where it gets complicated.

  753. Zash

    I'm assuming that "signed http messages" is on the same level.

  754. Wiktor

    well actually activitypub has two levels of signing, signed http requests are mandatory by Mastodon, they are quite easy but there is another thing, signed JSON messages, that is... mess... converting JSON into RDF and ordering that (canonicalization) and then signing, fortunately it's not required now

  755. Wiktor

    it's funny, all these protocols are just juggling with how to pass the same basic data, and struggling with some basic security (does message X come from Y)

  756. Zash

    You've convinced me. I won't be looking at ActivityPub anymore. Thanks for sparing me that madness.

  757. Zash

    Wiktor: The funny thing is that XMPP (or even email) has all those problems solved since literally forever.

  758. MattJ

    But can you run it on a shared web host?

  759. MattJ

    Oh wait, you can it seems

  760. Zash

    And the authentication part of PubSubHubbub is basically Dialback over HTTP

  761. Zash

    MattJ: "it"

  762. Wiktor

    I know Zash, I've been reading XMPP RFCs and XEPs since 15 years ago or so, but since then I'm more reserved

  763. Wiktor

    they could at least reuse the xmpp s2s idea of client certs, that's simpler than these crypto-security-dialbacks (also present in ActivityPub)

  764. MattJ

    Zash: The implementation OStatus was born from had the explicit goal of being in PHP and not requiring long lived processes

  765. muppeth has left

  766. MattJ

    Which meant no XMPP, except then it did

  767. Zash

    MattJ: Ah. But it doesn't even require that. You can make do with a static atom XML.

  768. Zash

    MattJ: Ah. But it doesn't even require that. You can make do with a static atom XML file.
