  162. vanitasvitae

    Hm, regarding XEP-0373 (OpenPGP for XMPP), it is not possible to retreive the Fingerprint of the key contained in a secret key backup without decrypting it first.

  163. vanitasvitae

    That's probably both a good and a bad thing.

  164. vanitasvitae

    UX-wise I'd like to show the user the fingerprint of the key they are about to restore

  165. vanitasvitae

    Hm, are there any benefits of having the fingerprint hidden in the backup? In the end, the public key gets published anyways

  166. vanitasvitae

    Ah I see this is adressed in https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/XEP-Remarks/XEP-0373:_OpenPGP_for_XMPP

  167. LNJ has left

  168. lovetox

    but what for vanitasvitae do you need this before?

  169. lovetox

    this is an operation which is carried out very very rarley

  170. vanitasvitae


  171. lovetox

    just download the key, decrypt it and show the user the fingerprints

  172. vanitasvitae

    but still if would be nice to tell the user "hey, we found a backup of key XYZ, would you like to restore that backup or maybe generate a new key instead?"

  173. lovetox

    ok, but is it not enough to say "we found a backup"

  174. vanitasvitae

    I agree that this is a minor issue

  175. lovetox

    also whats problematic i guess is

  176. lovetox

    if you dont have the fingerprint encrypted

  177. vanitasvitae

    The remarks page mentions some nice proposals to improve the situation

  178. lovetox

    this means its not sure that they belong together

  179. vanitasvitae


  180. vanitasvitae

    but I mean, that could be mitigated by verifying the fingerprint after decryption

  181. vanitasvitae

    still would present implementations with a possible pitfall though

    Memberbot is online now for our 2020 elections. Great applicants again this year

  232. Ge0rG

    uh-oh, somebody failed to apply for membership renewal

  233. Ge0rG

    oh, still two weeks time for that one

  234. Alex

    Ge0rG, ya, still open. Will remind them soon

    dwd: it looks like you are still applying for both B & C

  267. dwd

    It does, doesn't it? I should make a decision as to whether and which to drop.

  268. MattJ

    People have run for both before, I don't believe anyone has been elected for both during my time at least

  269. neshtaxmpp has joined

  270. Seve

    Let's see :)

  271. dwd

    Well, actually, they have. I'm pretty sure Peter did, several times, but I did in 2015.

  272. Ge0rG

    dwd: do you intend to run both positions if elected?

  273. dwd

    Yes, though I'll explicitly avoid chairing either (not that I think I'd win if I tried), or acting as liaison (which is properly the job of the council chair).

  274. tigran has left

  275. dwd

    I did act as liaison in 2015, and it was a bit difficult to keep the hats separate.

  276. Ge0rG

    dwd: you might want to update the last statement in your Board application then, > I'll review the state of applications, and if I feel I can I'll withdraw from one or other.

  277. Ge0rG

    (in both applications, actually)

  279. akkiko has joined

  280. Adi has left

  281. dwd

    Yes. Although there's context - there's stuff I'd like to get done in both, so it depends if I think most of that stuff would get done. I haven't yet reviewed the state of applications, though.

  282. Adi has joined

  283. Ge0rG

    dwd: there are five for Board and seven for Council, if that is what you meant by "review"

  284. lorddavidiii has joined

  285. dwd

    Well, my hope was that I could do more than just count. Sadly, doesn't seem to be the case for Board.

  289. jonas’

    dwd, fwiw, I’ll be happy to chair council again should I be reelected

  290. dwd

    Thank you! I'm amazed you find the time, given you've the editor role as well, but you've consistently done a better job than I did, so I wouldn't be standing anyway.

  291. akkiko has joined

  292. jonas’

    dwd, thank you :)

  293. dwd

    I mean, of course, supposing we both get elected. I have some thinking to do on that front about whether to withdraw, of course.

  294. akkiko has left

  295. jonas’

    yeah, let’s not call any election results before it’s done ........

    Luckily, the Supreme Court of the XSF is basically whoever shows up to the AGM in "person".
