    so I went with "ignore the limit if it's < 10k", reasoning being that it's a library and it wouldn't be nice to suddenly take away its users' constitutional right to send 10-k stanzas without two-way negotiation

  3. mjk

    "two-way negotiation" lol that's tautology

  4. mjk

    nego XEP welcome

    I observed that the RFC allows returning an error instead of a stream error for over-sized stanzas, but that would still require parsing them to completion, so at best it would apply to minor offenses

  6. mjk

    oh, interesting

  7. Zash

    I think I mentioned that another way to handle limits on the client side (other than throwing an exception) would be to pretend the server replied with such an error

  8. mjk

    that's even more interesting

  9. mjk

    because littering the code with try-catches it's my idea of a fun patch

  10. Zash

    you could of course raise an exception anyway, or convert exceptions into synthesized error stanzas...

    Not sure if this is the place for it, but I just wanted to look at the mailing list archives, but nothing is working under https://mail.jabber.org/mailman

    "problem loading page" for all archive links

    KellyC: thanks for reporting this. It is a known issue that is being worked on

  15. KellyC

    Ok, good to know, thanks! Just wanted to make sure

  16. Guus

    KellyC: it's fallout of hardware failure, iirc.
