    question to the people who are longer involved with the XSF then I am; why are XEPs (usually) created by individuals instead of working groups?

  190. xelxebar has joined

  191. Daniel

    i mean some (few) XEPs are written by more than one person; but we don’t seem to have the tradition of working groups like the ietf has

  192. fippo

    most successful IETF work starts from individual drafts too

  193. fippo

    the closest the XSF has to a WG is a SIG and we haven't really had them for a while

  194. marc_ has joined

  195. eevvoor has left

  196. Daniel

    i have a vague feeling (without knowing a lot about how the IETF works) that working groups could be more focused (regular meetings) and also more "democratic" as it would be a group of multiple people who have to have a rough consensus on the spec instead of just one author who has ultimate say in how things are written down (and then council basically just being able to say yes or no when it moves on)

  197. eevvoor has joined

  198. Daniel

    but i might might be wrong. i just noticed that the xsf process mirrors a lot of the itef process; except that part

  199. Daniel

    and i'm wondering if there was a reason for that

  200. debacle has left

  201. flow

    IETF working groups also usually have (more or less) a single person who tries to determine the consensus and writes it down in the I-D. That job is not easy, at least sometimes, just look at the OpenPGP WG and 4880bis. It is also what I would expect from a XEP author, but as you mentioned, I also have the feeling that this is not how it currently works in XSF

  202. mukt2 has left

  203. flow

    When I worked on OX (XEP-0373, -0374), I set up a public monthly meeting and announced it. There was also a git where public could send patches to, which got regulary build so that everybody could view the current state of the ProtoXEP

  204. flow

    I wonder if we should do the same with message fastening

  236. pep.

    Daniel, flow: I think that's something we could improve yes. I don't especially like that only one person ultimately has a say and don't accept your change because they haven't had coffee yet, or more realistically because they have their own agenda and don't care about the rest

    One thing to note is that the authors don't 'own' the XEPs, the XSF does. So the authors don't hold a XEP hostage.

    Yes technically the council could "take over", but I'm not sure how well that would be accepted socially

  247. mukt2 has left

  248. pep.

    I haven't seen this happen during my short time being involved, apart for clearly abandonned XEPs, and then it was really "can we really do this?"

    The counter to this is that it's also good to have one person ultimately responsible for getting the doc done and resolving any disputes

  286. jonas’

    I see my role as a XEP author mainly as proxy between the community and the editor, once it has been accepted.

    If the council votes, do they give any kind of feedback about why the have took their position?

  297. jonas’

    led, when veto-ing, a council member is obliged to give a rationale

  298. jonas’

    those should be included in the council minutes

  299. jonas’

    and they are also included in the voting summaries Tedd Sterr sends

  300. led

    Ok that's good then.

  301. jonas’

  370. Zash

    pep.: Like a chair I guess?

  371. pep.


  372. pep.

    XEP-0001 defines "Approving body Chair", well it doesn't. It only defines what a chair should do

    "The precise rules for polls, including meetings and timeouts, are determined by the Chair of the Approving Body."

    > pep.: I was looking for https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0019.html That is a good read. That kinda explains my earlier question

  381. Zash

    So, nothing prevents you from forming your own, as '19 says, small ad-hoc group to work on a proposal.

  382. pep.

    Sure that people can already do.. it's just to be transparent and stuff

    Groups can also be build based on components. .e.g. security, mobile, processes, performance,... maybe a kind of XEP Security Group which are working on security,... Just an idea. But it is important that there is one person, which is taking care about the activities with a group.
