    Hey, this may be of interest, it's a explanation on why GNU and FSF keep using IRC (XMPP and Matrix are mentioned): https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/info-gnu/2021-06/msg00005.html

    whew what a relief we can finally implement XMPP after all these years, only took 21 years to become stable...

    I assume the marketing department is preparing a spectacular press release! "Tons of extensions are STABLE now!"

  11. moparisthebest

    HN: Forget your one experience with XMPP using Pidgin with Google Talk in 2004, it's all Stable now

  12. yushyin

    assuming xmpp is at all relevant enough for HN

    Could anyone explain to me why it's so great that MUC has become a Stable Standard?

  14. Zash

    Hopefully we won't have people thinking "oh it's a draft, I suppose nobody implements that then"

  15. Holger

    me9: MUC was just an example, the XEP state that was called 'DRAFT' is now renamed to 'STABLE'.

  16. Holger

    ... for the reason explained by Zash.

  17. Holger

    (If that wasn't clear.)

  18. me9

    Ah! Thanks Holger.

  19. Zash

    Suppose a disembodied screenshot wouldn't be without already knowing what it was about

  20. me9

    So the lifecycle state däDraft doesn't exist anymore? It moved to Stable?

    So the lifecycle state Draft doesn't exist anymore? It moved to Stable?

  22. Zash

    Draft still exists(?) but if observed it shows up as Stable

  23. me9


  24. mjk

    So, in some sense, the act of observation makes it stable

  25. mjk

    Yay xsl

  26. mjk

    Congratulations, everyone. This is a huge leap for mankind

    Dear board, is there a plan that XSF can make it the next time for GSoC? I would like to raise this topic early. https://opensource.googleblog.com/2021/08/google-summer-of-code-2021-results-announced.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+GoogleOpenSourceBlog+(Google+Open+Source+Blog)&m=1 ralphm MattJ dwd arc
