  308. Ge0rG

    So that recent IETF thread make me think... are we able and willing to offer our help to the IETF to run a modern XMPP server for them?

  309. adiaholic has left

  310. adiaholic has joined

  311. adiaholic has left

  312. marc0s has left

  313. jonas’

    willing yes

  314. marc0s has joined

  315. adiaholic has joined

  316. jonas’

    able: I’d be happy to support with that if it isn’t open-registration

  317. pep.

    Can somebody tldr the thread? "hey we're in 2020, we want features. Here have a Slack instance"?

  318. Ge0rG

    pep.: kinda sorta

  319. Ge0rG

    pep.: also XMPP prejudice based on experiences from 2005

  320. jonas’

    so I can’t in the next month, but I’d be happy to help supporting in the long term

  321. jonas’

    I have some experience in monitoring things

  322. pep.

    Do they have clients for the server we'd provide?

  323. Ge0rG

    jonas’: that's something that needs to be done right now, though

  324. pep.

    With features(tm)

  325. Ge0rG

    pep.: educating them about modern clients would be part of the task

  326. jonas’

    Ge0rG, I can’t do right now, I have literally no time for any additional tasks until the move is over

  327. jonas’

    the remaining buffer time is reserved for emergencies

  328. jonas’

    (and user requests like "add me to o.j.n")

  329. jonas’

    Ge0rG, but we can surely send out the offer and then find someone to do it

  330. Ge0rG

    jonas’: maybe my comment was not directed to you as much as a general call to action for the XSF / Board / iteam

  331. pep.

    Ge0rG: you mean the great web clients we have? :p

  332. jonas’

    maybe we can get Holger to provide them with a free account and C download?

  333. jonas’

    Holger + Daniel that is

  334. jonas’

    Ge0rG, or you could spin up a vhost on yax.im?

  335. jonas’

    as a demo server

  336. Ge0rG

    pep.: Converse, Conversations and Siskin should cover most users, right?

  337. Ge0rG

    jonas’: sure thing.

  338. Ge0rG

    jonas’: just that yax.im isn't exactly a highly available machine

  339. jonas’

    true again

  340. jonas’

    I could also add a vhost to the s.j.n host (where I can comfortably give others shell)

  341. Ge0rG

    and it's got a bus factor of 1

  342. pep.

    xmpp.org doesn't have any users btw? (unrelated)

  343. Zash

    apart from memberbot, no

  344. pep.

    maybe apart from memberbot

  345. Zash


  346. lorddavidiii has left

  347. Ge0rG

    jonas’: don't get me wrong, I'd immediately set up whatever is required to host user accounts on my box, it's just not the perfect place to convince IETF people of the awesomeness of xmpp

  348. Zash

    IETF does have an ejabberd running, so it someone with ejabberd know-how might be able to help them hook that up some SSO with their document management thing

  349. winfried has left

  350. winfried has joined

  351. jonas’

    I’ll also be happy to provide a monitored empty debian-buster box.

    Info> ietf.org is running ejabberd version 19.08 Oh.

  356. Ge0rG

    wow, the list is so long I can't scroll it

  357. jonas’


  358. Ge0rG

    but 19.08 should be sane enough for all of their requirements, right?

  359. jonas’

    what are their requirements? ;)

  360. jonas’

    but probably yes

  361. Andrzej has left

  362. Ge0rG

    jonas’: "modern IM"

  363. jonas’

    19.08 should do then I guess

  364. Ge0rG


  365. Ge0rG

    I suppose we'd need Holger to volunteer re ejabberd maintenance

  366. jonas’


  367. Ge0rG

    Error> No Contact Addresses for ietf.org

  368. Ge0rG


  369. marc0s has left

  370. jonas’

    and maybe also jcbrand to support a converse setup there

  371. pep.

    Are we volunteering Holger already

  372. jonas’

    pep., yeah of course, mdosch was volunteered to be member of editor@ just a few hours after his election ;)

  373. jonas’

    can’t wait that much longer with holger!

  374. pep.


  375. Ge0rG

    heh, one of the users in the IETF hallways is running on yax.im

  376. lorddavidiii has joined

  377. Holger

    Yes yes. I'll ask the XSF to double my member's salary and we're good to go.

  378. jonas’

    Holger, GRANTED! There you go.

  379. MattJ

    You know you need Board approval for that

  380. MattJ

    Come on

  381. jonas’

    oh sorry

  382. jonas’

    MattJ, can I? ;)

  383. MattJ

    You'll have to wait a few weeks

  384. Ge0rG

    MattJ: well, technically the only "salary" you get is the Summit Dinner, and you can bring another person, so...

  385. MattJ

    One week to approve the discussion, one week for people to be busy, another week to decide we need a work team to approve salaries

  386. jonas’

    I find your lack of faith disturbing

  387. MattJ

    Oh I have faith, it will be approved ;)

  388. mukt2 has left

  389. Zash

    Before or after the next Board election?

  395. eta

    fwiw I'd also be willing to help out for the IETF if spare hands are needed

  396. Guus

    I think this is more about being able to guarantee long-term support than to find volunteers that can do things right now.

  397. pep.

    Ge0rG, it'd be great to have them update that page yeah :/

  398. Guus

    also see: jabber.org

  399. Ge0rG

    looks like Glen is the server admin, see https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/ietf-announce/dGQaXplloQp9J8CwKFhWWt2IDJY/

  400. Guus

    interesting that he lists ignite as the first server

  401. Guus

    at that time, I don't think it had registrations enabled.

  402. Ge0rG

    So we should: - contact Glen directly, maybe offering help to set up ietf.org as the xmpp user domain for the members? - send a PoC suggestion to the ML, offering to run a webchat fronted for them? - offer a PR to that page?

  403. Guus


  404. jonas’

    Ge0rG, yes & yes & yes

  405. Ge0rG

    in what order?

  406. jonas’

    we should also get glen into operators@

  407. goffi has left

  411. jonas’

    Ge0rG, go with Glen first

  412. Ge0rG

    CC to anybody?

  413. jonas’

    feel free to put any of the email addresses you have of me in CC and tell them that I’ll also be happy to help with trying to establish links to other operators and debugging remote issues

  414. jonas’

    since I have some experience with that as I run s.j.n

  415. Ge0rG

    and o.j.n.

  416. jonas’

    also point them at o.j.n because we by now ... exactly.

  417. jonas’

    also point them at o.j.n because we by now have a bunch of prober accounts where we do have contact info to trace down issues

  418. Ge0rG

    anybody else wants to be in CC?

  419. jonas’

    point them at operators@ (both the ML and the chat) and invite them to also add me directly to their contacts if that helps

  420. jonas’

    (though in that case, I prefer the @zombofant.net JID)

  421. jonas’

    I can’t help with ejabberd admin unfortunately, but I’ll be happy to help with anything I can do around that.

  422. Guus

    Ge0rG if needed, I'd be happy to help with Openfire-specific issues that they might have (I read that they push that impl) - I'd actually love to get their feedback on that. I'll be less involved with the more generic solution though

  423. Ge0rG

    jcbrand: do you happen to be awake and available?

    Ge0rG, does it have to be a private email? Can it happen on operators@?

  442. intosi has left

  443. Ge0rG

    pep.: it might be impolite to invite somebody to an ML by crossposting there

  444. pep.


  445. adiaholic has joined

  446. Guus

    also, this is an offer specific to IETF - not something suitable for the more generic operators mailinglist.

  447. pep.

    Guus, sure, that doesn't prevent us from doing that in public

  448. adiaholic has left

  449. jonas’

    Ge0rG, for the PoC suggestion: I unfortunately 100% lack experience with running converse.js, so I can’t really support there.

  456. Holger

    Ge0rG: Feel free to add me.

  457. Ge0rG

    Holger: also as a cosignatory?

  458. jonas’

    Ge0rG, I’d like to re-read this with the fixes, can you let me know when you updated it?

  459. Holger

    Ge0rG: Sure (as you see fit).

  460. Ge0rG

    jonas’: updated

  461. sonny has left

  462. jonas’

    Ge0rG, maybe add affiliations to the signatures? e.g. Georg Lukas (yax.im admin, JabberSPAM founder) Jonas Schäfer (observe.jabber.network and search.jabber.network operator) Holger Weiß (conversations.im operator)

  463. sonny has joined

  464. Ge0rG

    jonas’: thought about that

  465. sonny has left

  466. Ge0rG

    Holger is also an ejabberd developer, can't leave that out

  467. jonas’

    oh, very true

  537. Zash

    Maintainers of popular modern clients are likely busy with maintainging/developing the client

  538. Ge0rG

    Otherwise the periodic update to get rid of unmaintained clients is pointless

    iirc the thought behind the auto-expiry is that unmantained clients would fall off and that only good active ones would be left, but it looks like the opposite happened

    unintended consequences are the best kind

  645. jonas’

    Ge0rG, no, because then projects would have two places where they need to keep their DOAP up-to-date

  646. Ge0rG

    for active clients it might be a significant Editor burden to keep up with the PRs

  647. pep.

    btw Link Mauve, https://linkmauve.fr/ns/xmpp-doap, is this supposed to parse error
