  312. arc > Why? Because students need to contribute code in addition to their application, so an event where they can get some mentorship in doing so is helpful
  313. Steve Kille has left
  314. Kev FWIW, as a person who wouldn’t have suggested it himself, it sounds like a solid idea to me.
  315. Kev Also has advantages in encouraging “XSF” students rather than “Arbitrary Project” students.
  316. Daniel i'm afraid that the list of XSF students wont be very long
  317. Daniel which doesn’t have to be a bad thing
  318. Daniel but we should be aware of that if we make any change that encourage that
  319. Kev Well, the ideal would be that we have only as many applications as we end up with slots, and each applicant is perfect, right? :)
  320. arc I have a similar concern, especially since the program is effectively halved this year. But also my experience as program admin for different groups has shown that group coding events during the application period greatly increased the number of applications
  321. Steve Kille has joined
  322. arc That'd be ideal Kev 🙂
  323. Andrzej has left
  324. arc Also you need to consider that it is not just about picking the best students and watching them work. We are a good part of that equation
  325. govanify has left
  326. govanify has joined
  327. arc And part of this change from Google's side will also increase the number of thoughts overall
  328. arc https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Spring_Relay_2021 still needs sprint topics
  329. Calvin has left
  330. SamWhited arc: added my project and myself, thanks. I'll probably work on some MIX stuff since I recently needed it for something.
  331. Andrzej has joined
  332. Daniel how is the sprint going to be advertised to 'outsiders'?
  333. arc I was going to post it with some groups that I know
  334. arc I also assume that participating projects would be advertising with their communities
  335. Kev And presumably it would be in our org description on GSoC, same as we always do for our teaser task requirements?
  336. Holger BTW, if anyone happens to be interested in discussing OX (as in OpenPGP for XMPP), we're going to have a meetup on the topic in half an hour: https://xmpp-meetup.in-berlin.de/4d69d3cc-f28f-465a-baf2-0696024dc9ef
  337. wgreenhouse has left
  338. fuana has joined
  339. wgreenhouse has joined
  340. arc Yeah, in addition to the normal list
  341. fuana has left
  342. arc https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summer_of_Code_2021 is for the main ideas page
  343. arc We have not decided if you want to apply as an organization yet
  344. Daniel why wouldn’t we
  345. Daniel We have volunteers to act as admin
  346. arc Well the last time I looked we didn't have any projects signed up on the wiki page
  347. SamWhited I didn't know there was a wiki page, will think of project ideas. I think I'd like to participate this year
  348. MattJ What's the deadline? If it's not before the end of next week I can probably add some stuff
  349. arc I'm somewhat distracted this morning though by baby chickens nipping at my beard https://photos.app.goo.gl/wLbBP14CzxATb6Ud8
  350. arc We need to get the application in by this time next week
  351. SamWhited daww, look at that baby face. Oh, and also there are some birds.
  352. arc Lol thanks

  374. SamWhited Oh weird, that does say MIX, somehow I read that as MAM. I was just looking at an issue regarding MAM so I guess my brain crosswired them.
  375. SamWhited I was thinking about working on a *MAM* implementation during the sprint and maybe a MIX implementation if I can get someone to do Google Summer of Code or what not

  383. wgreenhouse Zash, MattJ: does `clix` (and/or Zash's upstream review version) still require lua5.1?
  384. Zash In theory no. In practice, it's the least painful path.
  385. wgreenhouse Zash: okey, thx.

  391. arc SamWhited: why not add MAM to the list?
  392. SamWhited arc: still trying to decide if that's what I want to do, but I will if I figure it out.
  393. arc I have been working on xmpp microservices, and I don't have a MAM microservice yet so that would be interesting to me
  394. SamWhited Realistically the thing that would provide the most value is if I finished doing disco, but I get frustrated and stop working on it every time I try for <reasons>
  395. arc Lol yeah
  396. arc MAM is also part of MIX. Everything is inter-related
  397. SamWhited And if I work on MIX I'll have to work on pubsub, which will make me cry too. I don't think I've ever made it through that XEP.
  398. arc I know that feeling. But if we just focus on one thing every week, with focused discussion on that topic during that week, we can get a lot done
  399. arc Part of the reason I'm working on the microservices model is we have a lot of software that is only partially supporting the annual compliance stack
  400. arc But, is relatively simple to add support for microservices. So even a traditional XMPP server should be able to just add support for the microservice protocol to add major extensions
  401. Zash What microservices protocol? Like XEP-0355?

  419. Andrzej has joined
  420. arc But I have been working on this since 2009
  421. intosi has left
  422. arc It has become a fundamental part of the concordance stack when I moved the s2s stanza router out of the Python domain. Back then the python code ran as a subprocess akin to cgi

  424. paul has joined
  425. antranigv has joined
  426. chronosx88 has joined
  427. arc By 2014-2015 it went further with cloud-ready microservices handling client and server connections, authentication, registration, etc. And the stanza router largely a dumb service that just routes stanzas between the microservices https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-mQgeagTilHZWN4M0ZlaEwyNVU/view?usp=drivesdk
  428. arc That's when EXI became part of the stack
  429. Yagiza has left
  430. arc That was when Atlassian hired me for Hip chat, Holden picked me up to work on his xmpp startup, and grindr was head hunting me for a bit. Dodged all of those bullets.

  448. stpeter has joined
  449. stpeter has left
  450. arc I have sold way more licenses for exi over the last 5 years than anything else.
  451. arc Mostly Asian IoT.
  452. arc But to be honest, I'm fairly certain that is because I don't release the source code openly. I bundle it with an integration service. If I were to release under the AGPL like I intended, I'm fairly certain I would have an impossible task of suing the thousands of IoT manufacturers who really don't care about the license.
  453. arc And I don't make enough money to hire legal firm.
  454. jonas’ ah hm, that explains why I hear a lot about exi from you but never found a library to use
  455. arc Why would I give up my source of perpetual rent money? 😆
  456. Andrzej has joined
  457. arc And truthfully there isn't "a" library. All the hard part is in the schema compiler, which by design generates a library. EXI is simple enough that you don't really need a library once you understand it.
  458. intosi has left
  459. moparisthebest ha, sounds like famous last words, X isn't hard once you understand it :)
  460. arc If they're were a library that you fed the schema/grammar into and give you a dynamic API to use it, thousands of these fly by night companies would use it without even giving you credit. They already don't give xmpp credit or see that they are using exi
  461. moparisthebest substitute what you will for X, TLS, TCP, x86 bootloaders
  462. eevvoor has left
  463. arc That is very true. But you have to realize a lot of these companies only exist for a single production run of a few million devices. Then another company's name is put on it, usually without giving that company the source code, and is sold under their brand.
  464. eevvoor has joined
  465. arc The entire economy is a massive shell game of fly by night companies and abandonware.
  466. moparisthebest software companies in general right?
  467. arc American startups tend to act a little more responsible. I'm really talking about the Chinese, Japanese, and South Korean tech manufacturing companies.
  468. arc They specifically set themselves up like this in order to protect themselves against consumer lawsuits. But it really protects him against all forms of lawsuits. Their devices could burn down homes and offices, explode in people's laps, or leech poisons into their food, and it's nearly possible to find anyone who's legally responsible. So software licensing is the least of their concern.
  469. moparisthebest please send me your money, here have a look at my whitepaper.pdf
  470. arc It would be really nice if they offered a white paper 😅

  473. intosi has joined
  474. arc Without naming names, I was briefly working for a startup in San Francisco that was aiming to sell turn-key IoT websites for these kinds of companies. A service specifically tailored for fly by night manufacturers. XMPP was one of the protocols they wanted to support, along with all the usual suspects. And the service was a per-device one time fee that the manufacturer could pay up front. It was sketchy enough to drive away American investors.
  475. wladmis has left
  476. arc But the good part was that they offered documentation. Even though the turnkey websites were embedded in the device firmware.

  479. arc I don't think it serves us as a community for users to even know that they're cheap generic brand wifi light they bought from Amazon runs xnpp. I suspect that the shoddy mobile app they installed and then immediately deleted to connect the devices to their Amazon Echo or Google Home has some almost-hidden menu option for the licensing and protocol documentation.
