    when one googles for "xep-0391" google thinks it was published in 1969... because the date in the example is 1969-07-21...

  203. MattJ


  204. Zash

    Having looked into this, I'd strongly recommend staying away from it if you value your sanity.

  205. Zash

    Oh neither of Google and DuckDuckGo understands the dates on prosody.im still? I thoguht I got at least one of them to understand 😞

  206. mukt2 has joined

  207. fippo

    oh yes 0202 (entity time) is even better. the publication date is right (2009), then continues with a date from 2006 and a random paragraph about jabber:iq:time. Clearly googlebot is drunk

    IIRC there's no sane way to set a 'last modified' time on a web page.

    Most of the various ways you can set a date is "created" or similar

    fippo: I think it just finds the very first full ISO timestamp (with a T in it), which for XEP-0202 is indeed 2006-12-19T17:58:35Z. And it is not a random paragraph, is it? It is the first paragraph of the main text?

    the SCAM work team has taken op the challenge to generate some leaflets, folders an the like that provide information about XMPP. For starters, we'll re-use content from the website. I'd like everyone to review the text on the website to see if the content is still relevant/up-to-date. Of particular interest: https://xmpp.org/about/technology-overview.html https://xmpp.org/about/myths.html https://xmpp.org/about/faq.html but maybe other pages too.

  252. Guus

    Today in the news: MLS encumbered? https://datatracker.ietf.org/ipr/4015/

  286. winfried

    flow: interesting, I haven't time nor energy to read the patent right now, but if it is patenting double ratchet in 2016 then it seems to be quite futile to me...

  287. larma

    winfried, I think the relevant part is the epoch key exchange (instead of with every message like signal/omemo/olm do)

  288. Yagiza has left

  289. mathijs has left

  290. mathijs has joined

  291. larma

    They do reference the signal protocol as prior art in the field, so copycats of signal protocol like omemo/olm don't need to care that patent

  292. moparisthebest

    well that's clearly worse than GPL

  293. winfried

    Does MLS use epoch keys? (still no time nor energy to confirm myself)

  294. larma

    moparisthebest, if I understand Dave's mail correctly, he agrees there are no GPL issues with omemo per se. he seems to be fine with omemo being based on signal protocol as long as there is documentation of how to use olm for that (so there are easy instructions how to do omemo without using gpl libraries) - that however can't be a requirement for a XEP in general IMO (it should be perfectly fine if there is only a GPL implementation as long as the only reason there is no non-gpl implementation is the fact that nobody wanted to write one)

  295. larma

    winfried, that's what I understood, but I also haven't read the current spec

  296. david has left

  297. david has joined

  298. moparisthebest

    sorry, I was mainly joking that "only GPL users are guaranteed legally to be able to use this spec" is clearly a better situation than "some company owns a patent on it and no one can use it"

    Some discussion around it: https://mobile.twitter.com/AlecMuffett/status/1213356702399115267

  311. pep.

    is there a definition of "commercial" somewhere btw

  312. ralphm

    Hey, an ex-colleague

  313. moparisthebest

    not one across all jurisdictions, of course patents don't apply across all either

  314. pep.

    to know in what context we're using it

  315. ralphm

    pep., the problem is in the phrase "as long as you don't". Everything that follows is an incumbrance.
