    Ugh https://www.irc.com/

  2. moparisthebest

    Maybe someone should tell them about XMPP

  3. ralphm

    Seems like a fine initiative.

  4. daniel

    is there a way to link to w3c specs from xeps the same way we link to rfcs?

  5. daniel

    i added a small section on CORS Headers to the http upload xep. any opinions before i submit this as a PR? https://gultsch.de/files/xep-0363.html#impl

  6. Ge0rG

    > Since there is no reason for a client to wait between requesting the slot and starting the upload, relatively low timeout values of around 60s are RECOMMENDED. Was that in the XEP before already? 60s is a bit short in some mobile situations.

  8. daniel

    what would a reasonable timeout it. when i'm editing anyway i can edit that as well

  9. daniel

    maybe 300s? which is a usual sm timeout

  10. Ge0rG

    daniel: that's safe, yeah

  11. Ge0rG

    Also your slot response might get caught in a SM session, so using 5m makes sense

  13. lovetox

    daniel "The make HTTP Upload work.."

  14. lovetox

    i guess this should read "To make.."

  15. daniel

    lovetox, thanks

  16. lovetox

    and one point too much at the end of section 7

  17. jonas’

    daniel, LGTM

  18. jonas’

    Steve Kille, I saw the mails on standards@; I’ll work on the PRs wednesday night or tomorrow night (CET), so that’ll work

  19. jonas’

    in general, for this type of remarks, it’s safer to use the github interface, because I’ll read that before merging anyways.

  20. jonas’

    cc @ daniel ^

  21. jonas’

    (since those were editorial discussions anyways)

  22. ralphm

    I'll try to add some comments tomorrow

  23. jonas’

    ralphm, non-editorial things to the mailing list please

  24. ralphm


  25. Steve Kille

    jonas: thanks. I'll let you know when I'm done, and then Ralph and Daniel can give me more things to do

  26. jonas’

    Steve Kille, acknowledged. leaving a comment for myself so that I don’t merge it accidentally

  27. lovetox

    nice, no discovery on private storage

  28. jonas’

    lovetox, yupp

  29. jonas’

    which also doesn’t matter much, you figure it out on write

  30. lovetox

    then its too late

  31. lovetox

    i want to show the user that he can bookmark a room, and disable the button if the server has no support

  32. lovetox

    i guess i leave that available all the time, and just go with the assumption every server has either pubusb or privatestorage

  33. ralphm

    Private storage is older than disco. Maybe some servers do advertise the namespaced, but it's not defined.

  34. ralphm


  35. ralphm

    Except it being listed here: https://xmpp.org/registrar/disco-features.html

  36. ralphm

    I think prosody announces it

  37. ralphm

    jonas’: just put the PR up for review by yourself

  38. lovetox

    oh nice

  39. lovetox


  40. ralphm

    jonas': Then you can't merge it.
