The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) will hold its 24th XMPP Summit in the two days preceding FOSDEM 2020, January 30th & 31st. To participate in this (or any future summit), please join the firstname.lastname@example.org discussion list and ask for an account in this Wiki, so you can add yourself (and/or colleagues) to the list in this page.
Please note that the venue is not publicly accessible! You will need to announce your participation beforehand, to allow us to arrange for your access to the building!
Cisco System Belgium
De Kleetlaan, 6A
Direct trains to Diegem run from both Brussel-Centraal (2-3 trains/hour) and Schuman (1 train/hour). Both routes should take between 15 and 20 minutes. According to Google, it's a 6 minute walk from the station to Cisco Systems Belgium. Schuman is the station closest to the Thon Hotel EU.
For more routing options, check Google Maps
- Thu 30th Jan
- Fri 31st Jan
Possible topics (please augment as desired):
- Your topic here - add your name please!
- In-client, unified, public MUC search (not disco) - Nÿco
- I need a search engine in my clients/apps, for public MUCs across the whole open/public/federated network
- Like search.jabber.network, but NOT on the web, rather in XMPP apps/clients - also like https://index.xabber.com/
- MAM search - Nÿco
- I need to search ALL my old messages and conversations, whether one-to-one or MUC
- I believe this is what is addressed in https://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/fulltext.html
- Note: see how Matrix does a client-side feature, with distributed aspects
- Opt-in server metrics report - Nÿco
- All public and federated servers should report some stats/metrics/analytics
- Users counts and number of servers is a start, maybe more data is useful, like messages counts
- It has to be opt-out but let the debate happen
- Like https://the-federation.info/
- Basic C2S feature over REST-like API (HTTP/JSON) - Nÿco
- Some XMPP features can be made available over REST-like APIs
- QuickBlox, Tigase, MongooseIM do this, developers appreciate that
- User-friendly OMEMO key management - Nÿco
- Yes, I've changed my client/app/device, so what?
- Yes, I've added a new client/app/device, so what?
- Wait, what are... keys? How should I do with them?
- Oh no, again, another something is encrypted and I can't decrypt it
- Multiclient presenceless MUC - Nÿco
- When I join a channel, I'm in, period. Whatever the connectivity, whatever the client
- And I'll stay until I explicitly and manually and consciously leave
- MUC light, MUC/sub, Xabber's approach seem all good, more or less
- Even something close to bouncers like IRC could fit
- MIX is overkill, several years long process, with no serious implementation so far
- It has just to happen yesterday, we are late
- Easy passwordless device enrolment/account recovery - MattJ
- Simple UX for the developers - Nÿco
- Simple mindset and techniques to improve the state of your software
- CommTeam: Newsletter, Twitter, Mastodon, LinkedIn (Facebook, Instagram) - Nÿco
- Process transparency and documentation, some metrics
