    How would you recommend telling someone to get involved with the XSF? I don't see any obvious way to onboard someone, any page to tell them to visit, etc.

  272. Guus

    SamWhited that's not a bad question. I think I'd first try to figure out what would motivate them to join. And, you're right, our onboarding process is... lacking.

  273. Guus

    SamWhited I'm 😞 for seeing your membership expire. Was that intentional?

  274. SamWhited

    Guus: yah, I just don't see the point in membership

  275. lorddavidiii has left

  276. SamWhited

    Never did except some overzealous person insisted that I be a member if I wanted to help out with editing

  277. genofire has left

  278. Guus

    SamWhited I agree that membership doesn't offer _that_ much (it's a prerequisite for our voting process, which I think isn't working, and to join work teams), other than symbolic value.

  279. genofire has left

  280. Half-Shot has left

  281. SamWhited

    Yah, maybe I should have just to bolster the number; oh well.

  282. Guus

    but, I do like that symbolic value. It's good to expose ourselves as a group, for example.

  283. frainz has joined

  284. SamWhited

    Doesn't seem worth my time just for the number though. Maybe that's what I should send them though, instructions on how to become a member.

    Do you have suggestions on the onboarding?

  288. Guus


  289. oli has joined

  290. SamWhited

    And descriptions of some of the teams

  291. SamWhited

    No, I was just wondering if anything existed already I could point someone at.

  292. Guus

    I think we're listing the teams on the website? Maybe that too, needs restructuring.

  293. Guus

    Ah, you're having someone specific in mind?

  294. Guus

    as opposed to this being an academical question.

  295. Guus

    well, point them to this MUC?

  296. SamWhited

    Well, it's part of a blog post, not someone specific, but yah.

  297. SamWhited

    That's a good idea

  299. oli has joined

  300. Guus

    I do believe that we've closed ourselves off a little to much, maybe, preventing easy access

  301. Guus

    (we're no longer offering a web client, to sign up to the wiki, you need to jump through hoops)

  302. Guus

    all for reasons, but it's not helping for the onboarding.

  353. lnj

    I'd like to link the Sprints and Meetups pages on the main page of the wiki, but wanted to ask before I do changes on that page.

  354. Half-Shot has joined

  355. jonas’

    hm, if you want to modify the main page, maybe hit up the COMM team

  356. jonas’

    which would be at xmpp:commteam@muc.xmpp.org?join, but they also hang out here.

  357. lnj


  358. Half-Shot has left

  359. lnj

    jonas’, The JID isn't working for me.

  360. jonas’

    it is a URL, maybe that’s why?

  361. jonas’

    I can join the MUC at commteam@muc.xmpp.org without issues.

  362. Half-Shot has joined

    ... gajim somehow added it as contact instead of bookmark ...

    lovetox, ^ complain!

  366. jonas’

    lovetox, ^ *complain* !

  367. lnj

    Maybe, it was because of the comma at the end, so it wasn't recognizing the `?join` ?

  370. chunk has joined

  371. chunk has joined

  372. lovetox

    yes exactly thats the reason

  373. lovetox


  374. lovetox

    maybe i should interpret , ( ) etc, as url endings

  375. lovetox

    even though they are valid in a url

  376. lovetox

    but i guess 99% of the time you will not use these in a url

  377. jonas’


  378. jonas’


  379. lovetox


  380. lovetox

    indeed they use that

  381. jonas’

    a lot, unfortunately.

  382. lovetox

    hm .. then i probably have to add a regex that interprets xmpp as start and join as end

  383. jonas’

    trimming , at the end of a url if followed by a space is proooobably safe though

  384. lovetox

    ah yeah thats also a option

  385. jonas’

    same for ")" if no "(" is inside the URL

  386. jonas’

    (this goes in the same direction as stuff which was discussed and which I complained about in poezio@ or programming@ the other day)

    lnj: regarding proposed change: we (well, me) think of the wiki as something to facilitate XSF members, while the website is there to facilitate the general public. As such, I'd prefer that those sprint pages move from the wiki to the website.

  425. Guus

    I'm thinking that they're now on the wiki, as it's easier to modify them for people? I'd love to see if we can make our web editing as accessible .

  426. lnj

    Guus, I think the web editing ins't the problem, it's just easier to write the wiki code.

  427. Half-Shot has left

  428. Guus

    Web is markdown

  429. Guus

    Which is about as easy?

  477. Guus

    jonas’ although I'm on Ubuntu, and perhaps not the most average of visitor to that website, the symbol you used for room details does not render on my laptop: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/23ff/browsertest.htm

    What about `<abbr title="Information">(i)</abbr>` then

  492. Guus

    or a plain old image? 🙂

  493. jonas’

    Guus, SamWhited, it’s not "room details", it’s specifically "this is non-anonymous"

  494. jonas’

    and it *does* have an <abbr/> tag

  495. jonas’

    (@ Zash)
