Everyone go for decentralization - no joke! 01 Apr 2020
[ Friendly, human introduction for the month (remove this mention before publishing) ]
Welcome to the XMPP newsletter covering the month of February and March 2020.
We had a big delay releasing and finalizing the February release of the XMPP Newsletter. So the decision was made to combine both into this version - apologies!
Anyway, we are always happy to contributors - just come along and talk to us in the [Comm-Team MUC xmpp:email@example.com?join] and thereby help us sustain this as a community effort, which process is fully documented.
