Revision as of 13:08, 10 October 2019

Here you can submit news items for inclusion in the next XMPP Newsletter (as managed by the CommTeam).


To contributors, editors, reviewers, translators

Live discussion

xmpp:commteam@muc.xmpp.org?join

What determines relevancy?

The submission must ideally be a blog or article about XMPP/Jabber and/or XMPP-based software (clients, servers, libs).

Some exceptions might be made, for example for a release page showing a new release of some XMPP-based software.

However, marketing brochures (e.g. single-page marketing sites) for new products which don't contain information on XMPP, won't be included.

Make sure you read the Basic communication guide for XMPP techies

Process

  1. Before: duration 1 month
    1. Collect links in this wiki page: duration 3-4 weeks
      • Read and validate the content
      • Include the reporters credits!
    2. Copywrite so each content is readable by humans: duration 2-3 days
      • Add links
      • Add images
      • Add CTAs
      • Carefully craft the subject/title line, and the preview text (first lines that are sometimes previewed on email UAs)
      • Include the copywriters credits!
    3. PR on website git repo for blog post (Markdown, Pelican): duration the week-end before posting
      • Need at least 2 or 3 peer reviews
      • Include the reviewers credits!
    4. Twitter:
      • Copywrite and review draft tweet: text, image, hashtags, link
  2. Sending the newsletter: on D-day
    1. Copy-paste Newsletter on Tinyletter, test it (peer review is not yet done), send it
    2. Report analytics from latest newsletter in spreadsheet, send to commTeam MUC
    3. PR merge and deploy on website git repo for blog post
    4. Twitter:

  3. Translations: after D-day
    1. Start the translations: publish before next newsletter :)
      • French: published on JabberFr.org and LinuxFr.org, working on Etherpad, need format ?
      • German: published on jabber.de, working on ?, need format ?
