    blue, Do you have any project which could be a part of GSoC, considering C++ as its stack

  2. blue

    I have an xmpp messenger, it's c++ qt, but a bit of a mess now. Right now I paused it a bit, but I wish to resume at some point. I don't know what it takes to present a project on gsoc, that's why I'm carefully asking

    blue: osi-license and accessible code

  4. blue

    I have code hosted publicly on a self hosted gitea and use gpl3 for that project. But I didn't study yet the wiki you're referring of what exactly do I need to do

  5. emus

    most important to scope an idea around 90, 175 or 350h of work for a newcomer

  6. blue

    There is so much stuff I wish to make there - I surely have tasks, but the hardest part is to evaluate the time it takes, especially for newcomer

    Thanks a lot, I'll read as soon as I'll arrive. But, ME take a look at the project anyway, may be it's not the kind you wish to participate, it's https://git.macaw.me/blue/squawk. Now master branch is very old, I've been working on encryption branch, and I'm a little bit stuck there

    My 2 cents on keys for authentication in XMPP: Should sign messages in an end-to-end way as well. Could that be done with the same keypair? Already a thing with OMEMO?

  21. hyol

    Speaking of OMEMO, it would be cool if there was some formal, and possibly automatic, way of signing new devices with old ones. Since devices change regularly.

    Speaking of OMEMO, it would be cool if there was some formal, and possibly automatic, way of signing new devices' pubkeys with old ones. Since devices change often.
