XSF Discussion - 2022-10-25

    I'm half-way taking over from JC, indeed.

  2. Guus

    My initial thought on adding 'free'-typed labels is that it defeats the purpose of that system: facilitating people wanting to earn their living with XMPP-related jobs.

  3. Kev

    I *suspect* the intention was to help people who'll only work for someone producing OSS.

  4. Kev

    But could easily be wrong.

  5. emus

    I understood that too. but then we might use a different term than "free"

  6. Ge0rG

    do we have any tooling for semantic checking of the XEP XMLs? /me is looking at #1223

  7. Guus

    Ah, right. That is deceptively hard to identify correctly, I fear, as I have not yet spotted that in any of the listing texts.

  8. Guus

    Ge0rG: I am not aware of any (but that isn't saying much).

  9. pep.

    Guus: https://www.fossjobs.net/ there are quite a few like that. I'm not sure what's complicated about it

    A reminder that we are coming closer to the deadline for the board and council applications. I see no applications yet on the Wiki page. When you plan to apply for any of those roles, please create your application on the Wiki here by November 6th: https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Board_and_Council_Elections_2022 Thanks

  11. Ge0rG

    Still plenty of time to gather some candidates

  12. singpolyma

    I have a minor procedural question. Where are new members voted on vs board and council elections? If someone is applying to be a member in Q4 do they get to vote in the board and council elections or have to wait until the next one due to timing of themselves being confirmed as a member?

  13. pep.

    The question only applies for council as board people don't need to be members

  14. singpolyma

    pep.: for being voted into the position yes, but I meant in terms of voting for the candidates, which I believe members vote in both the council and the board?

  15. singpolyma

    the question of if a Q4 member applicant can be a council candidate is also interesting, but not what I meant to ask

  16. pep.

    ah, yeah dunno

  17. MattJ

    Current membership period ends on 27th Nov, after the elections

  18. singpolyma

    MattJ: cool

  19. MattJ

    XMPP's cloud-native successor? https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-nandakumar-mimi-transport-00

  20. pep.

    Cisco? Tey don't want to miss out as they've been missing out other XMPP updates?

  21. pep.

    Cisco? They don't want to miss out as they've been missing out other XMPP updates?

  23. moparisthebest

    sorry does the motivation say "this addresses flaws in 20 year old XMPP that have been already been addressed and in widespread use for at least a decade" ?

  24. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    But has it been solved in a cloud native way? /s

  25. moparisthebest

    yes I can personally attest that XMPP does in fact run well on other people's computers, and as such is cloud native
