XSF Discussion - 2021-09-10

    Reading a newsletter-linked article here, can't help but give some feedback on quality. view-source:https://www.cometchat.com/blog/xmpp-extensible-messaging-presence-protocol > <p>[…] The XML fragment looks something like this:</p><div class="w-embed"><Presencefrom="myusername@mydomain.com"id="123456"to="otherusername@mydomain.com"><show>online</show></Presence></div> Someone was _really_ struggling with their XML in an XMPP-introducing article. And wth is this cryptic nonsense? > Resource refers to the type of device on which the message was sent. For example, mobile vs web. This part of the unique identifier is optional and is often only defined in situations where the client doesn't support every device.

    Mmmmmm :)

  3. MattJ

    Maybe someone could reach out to them with some feedback/suggestions?

  4. Ge0rG

    Cosette Cressler seems to be present on most major anti-social platforms.

  5. mjk

    Well, there's a pop-up chat right on the page (hopefully, xmpp-based ;))

  6. mjk

    Nnnope, neither xmpp-, nor cometchat-based. Anyway, I did send my comments on the xml issue. I'm not terribly qualified to do the same regarding the content

  7. emus

    I rather thought of inviting them to XMPP hours and then have a discussion

  8. Zash

    Anyone who happens to have git and sed handy and wanna replace the now broken tools.ietf.org references in xep.ent?

  9. Ge0rG

    Zash: with what?

  10. Zash

    datatracker.ietf.org I think

  11. Zash

    or rfc-editor.org

  12. Ge0rG

    there are 40+ other files mentioning it, so...

  13. Zash


  14. Zash

    that too

  15. Ge0rG

    So http://tools.ietf.org/ is somebody's 15 year old blog now?

    I always assumed IETF people to use TUI editors on some *nix…

  19. Ge0rG

    and to have long beards?

  20. mdosch

    Neckbeards to be precise. 😂

  21. Zash

    Having been to an IETF meeting, that's not true.

  22. Zash

    It's all macbooks and github.

    > Anyone who happens to have git and sed handy Just suggest the use of https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rewrite-ietf-id-urls-to-t/aiccdpabeagpjcebilebhlifplfkinao by visitors, done

  25. Zash

    Nah, not the impression I got. More like well-paid engineers sent there by their big enterprise employers.

  26. mjk

    (Yes, that is linked from <https://tools.ietf.org>)

    Do we have other option with the hugo setup

  29. emus

    Do we have other option with the hugo setup?

  30. Zash

    XEPs don't have anything to do with that.
