starting a co-op; seeking guidance 

I and a few others around here are starting a software cooperative!

We (think we) generally have a handle on things but there are a few decisions and details we'd love to have some guidance on. I know there are plenty of folks around here who might have advice but I didn't want to impose on any of you. Sooo please reply or DM if you have the time/energy to answer a few questions?

A group that is partially involved in Mellium is considering setting up a new cooperatively governed and run node in the network. If you're interested in being a part of that effort, reach out! Here or in our chat room.

Just sent the first groupchat message through Communiqué! Lot's more to do, but the basics of joining a room, sending, and receiving messages are working!

An initial design draft for advertising Entity Capabilities is out. If you're familiar with and we'd love your feedback and suggestions!

🎉 Our iOS app is finally public! 🎉

This is a huge milestone for the project, and proof of what we can accomplish when a community comes together around a purpose.

The app link will automatically appear in the next Snikket server update (along with some other app-related fixes), but the post has manual instructions for admins who just can't wait 🙂

Gajim 1.4 Preview: Workspaces

The Gajim team has been hard at work in the past months to prepare the next v1.4 release. The upcoming version brings a major interface redesign. In this post, we explain how the new interface works and what remains to be decided or implemented before the release.

Another Co-op Cloud Kite-Flying hour is almost upon us! 3pm CEST today (15 minutes from now)

Come hang out, chat, co-work or lurk! It's a public moment for anyone curious about the project to pop by. We'll be in 🚀 ☀️ 💻

Slight change to the UI last night: a modal just wasn't enough space for larger forms. No one wants to scroll!

The initial implementation of ad-hoc commands in Communiqué is done! This lets you fetch a list of commands for an entity and execute them using custom forms so you can configure gateways and bots or even remote control clients all from within Communiqué!

For such a last minute thing we sure did accomplish a lot at today's last minute Office Hours informal hangout!

There are no Office Hours today, but if anyone is bored and just wants to live-program or doodle on the shared whiteboard or something, I'll be hanging out in the room for the next 40 minutes or so:

Exciting news! Thanks to funding from the Open Technology Fund, the excellent folks at Simply Secure will be working with us to improve the usability of , particularly our iOS app.

If you're interested in helping out with the usability study, there is an opportunity to participate with 30 minutes of your time. No special expertise required :)

We've outlined our history syncing strategy on the ModernXMPP docs and would love for other clients to do the same, if you're willing. This is part of a push to write a standard that outlines best practices, and we'd love to cooperate with you all!
