Working back the backlog

News mostly done now...

Well, going on vacation without getting online for almost two weeks does really make me realise how much of an information junkie I have become. Although Mimír nicely kept track of all the news I was missing during my absence, when I got back there where so many items that the webserver refused to produce such a big page. I guess that needs some work. Anyway, I struggled through all those news items during the whole weekend and just marked the last items as having been read.

On of the things that came by were some developments in the pubsub arena. Both offline offlinestpeter and hildjj have worked on producing a first draft on how to move ATOM over XMPP. I still have to read it through more thoroughly, but so far: nice stuff. I also read the nice responses and good comments. Really promising, and I will be implementing this for Mimír. Hopefully soon.

Also made a number of posts about the need for reference implementations of both Jabber servers and clients. Possibly in python. I'm all for it, as a number of others, and I'm game!

But please, stop doing / thinking up cool stuff when I am on vacation!

Next, the backlog of e-mail.
