    s1: It is important to do feedbacks to developers...

    mathieui: why does everyone keep saying this? Where is the rumour coming from? 🙂

    s1: very helpful, thanks!

  7. Daniel

    as the one who I think unintentionally started the rumour: a board member told board that he is going to reach out to Saul but there was absolutely no public feedback about that and the reaching out has happened out of band

  8. Daniel

    so my original question was phrased somewhat like: hey what did come out of that reaching out? in case that reaching out failed it would be too late to apply on our own

    MattJ, my bad, I skimmed the list of devroom and I missed RTC

  10. MattJ

    No worries :)

    > I think that should certainly be part of advertising the protocol and solutions emus, it's not clear what you're referring to here

  23. emus

    theTedd: advertise what using xmpp is good for etc

  24. theTedd

    what is it good for? 🙃️

  25. emus

    I intend to collect such arguments in next tuesday workshop on vision and strategy and out of this try to improve our communication. Thats why I posted this as an outside perspective.

    The rumors and gut feeling was wrong, at last for this year. If you are interested as an XMPP project (especially when it comes to ML/AI) - the time to plan is now. I will ask and try to be org admin again. > It’s time to announce <https://opensource.googleblog.com/2023/11/google-summer-of-code-2024-celebrating-20th-year.html>our 20th year of Google Summer of Code with our 2024 program and timeline <https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline>. > The only changes from the 2023 program are: >   1. >      We are introducing the concept of small projects (~90 hours) >   2. >      We are looking forward to having more AI/ML open source >      organizations involved in GSoC 2024 so be sure to spread the word to >      orgs in this field.
