  1. jonas’ reminds people gently about https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board_and_Council_Elections_2018

  2. jonas’

    candidates, mostly

  3. jcbrand

    I also don't seem to be receiving members emails since a while

  4. Ge0rG

    the last one I received is Oct 1st, "Board & Council elections" by Alex

  5. Alex

    Seve: once I have your email I can check

  6. jcbrand

    Alex would you mind checking for me as well? AFAIK it should be lists@opkode.com

  7. Alex

    jcbrand: not on there, adding now

  8. jcbrand


  9. Alex

    jcbrand: done

  10. jcbrand

    Alex Is there a confirmation step?

  11. Ge0rG

    I need to copy my application from last year and add a remark that I've been lazy

  12. Alex

    jcbrand: not that I am aware of

  13. jcbrand


  14. Alex

    Ge0rG: go aheah, or do you need some permissions?

  15. Ge0rG

    Alex: I'm too lazy :P

  16. Alex

    developers are lazy, nothing wrong with tha ;-)

  17. Seve/SouL

    Alex, seve@delape.net

  18. Seve/SouL

    Maybe my old one is there but didn't notify about the change

  19. Alex

    Seve/SouL: done

  20. Seve/SouL

    thank you Alex!

  21. Ge0rG

    Do we have a wiki page or some other intro for people who want to get involved with the XSF, and maybe volunteer for Board/Council?

  22. jonas’

    Ge0rG, from zero to council is probably not a good idea anyways

  23. jonas’

    for board, maybe this is interesting? https://xmpp.org/about/xmpp-standards-foundation.html

  24. Ge0rG

    jonas’: indeed

  25. Seve/SouL

    Don't think you would make it to the council nor board without prior "experience" as a member

  26. Link Mauve

    For board, that shouldn’t be an issue.

  27. Ge0rG

    I didn't have experience with Council before applying ;)

  28. jonas’

    Seve/SouL, I think for board, that’s fine

  29. Guus

    Seve, if you're interested, please do apply.

  30. jonas’

    Seve/SouL, for board, it’s more relevant to have management skills than technical skills

  31. jonas’

    so you don’t need to (IMO) have member experience

  32. jonas’

    if someone who worked as CEO for $company applied for board, I think they would have a good chance to be elected

  33. Seve/SouL

    Hmm, okay, yeah, I get your point

  34. Seve

    Guus, suggestion is appreciated :)

  35. jonas’

    somebody tell me I’m wrong on this

  36. jonas’

    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7622#section-3.3 > The localpart of a JID is an instance of the UsernameCaseMapped profile of the PRECIS IdentifierClass, which is specified in [RFC7613].

  37. jonas’

    RFC 7613 is obsoleted by RFC 8265, so going there (<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8265#section-3.3>): > Ensure that the string consists only of Unicode code points that are explicitly allowed by the PRECIS IdentifierClass defined in Section 4.2 of [RFC8264].

  38. jonas’

    going there (<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8264#section-4.2.1>): > Code points in the range U+0021 through U+007E, i.e., the (printable) ASCII7 ("K") category defined under Section 9.11.

  39. jonas’

    this includes the "/" character. which would become valid in localparts of JIDs

  40. jonas’


  41. jonas’

    I am luckily very wrong

  42. jonas’

    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7622#section-3.3.1 excludes the characters

  43. Zash

    It's explicitly forbidden somewhere else yes
