    That is, there can't be a hostile takeover of XMPP anymore. Of the XSF "it depends", and surely it could impact protocol making within the XSF but it shouldn't impact projects that much. There's no reference implementation, etc. (or is there?)

    I don't like to use the term jabber as it's 'owned' by Cisco. Also I met people who were not willing to try xmpp because I called it jabber and they use Cisco jabber in the company and they don't like it.😂

    Link Mauve, names could be for: - The technical protocol. ActivityPub. XMPP. - The federated open network of said protocol. Fediverse. ? - A selection of client and server software. Mastodon. Snikket

    Mind you, I'm not saying XMPP isn't being improved / influence greatly. And the XSF plays a (too important, imo) role in this, without acknowledging it, but that may be another topic

  398. antranigv has joined

    But here I use XMPP as a protocol AND as the community of projects / use-cases

  402. L29Ah has joined

  403. pep.

    *IM*, I'd formulate it differently, as mjk says and I confirm here. XMPP isn't bound by XSF rules, and anybody can reuse the protocol as they wish. Now, in practice, there is a number of people and projects gravitating around the XSF and these are influenced by decisions the XSF make to some extent (a great extent sometimes)

  404. pep.

    Just look at the number of projects holding features hostage because the XSF hasn't stamped it

  455. Holger

    pep., so custum extensions such as ProcessOne's MUC/Sub or those published by Tigase are standard XMPP in exactly the same way as the extensions published by the XSF?

  456. pep.

    If there's some kind of open process to contribute to them I don't see why not

  457. Holger

    The protocol used by WhatsApp is standard XMPP, or at least it would be if they published the specs on some random web site?

  458. Holger

    Ah it's about "contributability".

  459. pep.

    To me yeah. Standard doesn't mean "good", but it's better than not

  460. Alex has left

  461. Holger

    I'm not trying to make some "standard" == "good" statement, but I do think there's value in trying to stick to a single entity being responsible for maintaining an open spec. Because interop.

  462. pep.

    Holger, I'd say it's in the spirit of the 4 freedoms, to me. Use, Study, Share, Modify

  463. pep.

    Holger, which single entity, IETF or XSF? :)

  464. pep.

    Or IEEE?

  465. jonas’

    pep., for XMPP, clearly the XSF, it's even mentioned in RFC 6120

  466. Holger

    Isn't it a problem for a communication protocol if modification breaks communication?

  467. Holger

    You're obviously "free" to publish arbitrary modifications, I'm just questioning whether that's desirable.

  468. pep.

    jonas’, also from 6120: « Although extended namespaces for XMPP are commonly defined by the XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) and by the IETF, no specification or IETF standards action is necessary to define extended namespaces, and any individual or organization is free to define XMPP extensions. »

  469. pep.

    Holger, and the XSF isn't publishing modifications to its own documents maybe?

  470. Wojtek has joined

  471. Holger

    Yes my ideal standards organization would have an even stronger focus on consistency & interop than the XSF does. The usual response is "Compliance Suites". Assuming that's the proper solution, I think it's desirable to have a single entity maintaing those.

  472. lovetox has left

  473. Holger

    Whereas my understanding of what you're saying is that consistency/interop would be a non-issue, so I'm just asking whether I got that right 🙂

  474. crypt has joined

  475. pep.

    I don't. I don't think interoperability is achievable at a protocol level, or we're talking about a very low bar, I'd rather aim for it at the product level

  476. Holger

    How's that different from the WhatsApp and Signal products then?

  477. pep.

    They're not decentralized?

  478. Holger

    Ok Wire.

  479. pep.

    I don't know Wire

  480. pep.

    Maybe it isn't. Is Wire anything else than their implementation?

  481. libre has joined

    But yeah that's where we can agree to disagree then I guess.

  486. lovetox has joined

  487. pep.

    To be clear, I'm not saying I don't want to achieve some kind of interop at the protocol level. I'm saying it's hard. Everybody's got different use-cases and thinking interop can be achieved at this level is nothing but a lie to me

  488. Holger

    I definitely believe interop at the protocol level is achievable & desirable.

    XMPP users want to do WhatsApp, Slack, or IoT. Then there's very specific stuff such as Isode customers using sattelites or whatever, but that's not the issue.

    So XMPP wants to be many things to many people? 🤔

  532. Holger

    Kev, right. I guess there's also higher level examples such as security labels or whatever, but I think those aren't a problem, the 'X' in our protocol name is really good in specifying optional extensions for specific use cases. The problem is that we're having a hard time standardizing a given use case such as WhatsApp. It's not clear how to do avatars, or group chat, or E2EE, let alone avatars or E2EE within the group.

  533. pep.

    (fwiw standardizing avatars in MUC has been attempted at least 2 or 3 times, and shot down)

    I think _if_ the goal is to have a centralized effort to specify how interop between decentralized players works it's essential to allow for participation of those players, which implies trying to protect against hostile takeover, which I guess was the motivation behind the neutrality stance, But maybe such protection wouldn't have to contradict the value promotion you'd like to see, esp. if all players can agree with those values ...

    If there were official work groups, they could vet the extension proposals and submit and endorse the ones the group most definitely want to see implemented. This will become more important as the protocol branches out into unrelated usecases.
