How are things in the BZFlag world? What's happened with the bzflag list server lately? The json and lua versions of the list say they are text/plain instead of their respective Content-Types. Where is the db source these days?
What happened with the bzauthd project? Was OAuth2 considered? This could issue a client jwt which would then not need to be revalidated for each server connection. Of course, that makes it reusable, so that might not be a step forward.
Is @blast still running the list server and such? It looks like I don't have server admin access anymore. @blast, are you still happy to keep hosting things? Do we have a backup plan?
Looks like phpBB could use an update from 3.3.2 to 3.3.9. I'd be happy to work on that.
It looks like MediaWiki is locked. I can't login there. It could also use an update from 1.26.3 to 1.39.1 which could add the Visual Editor. The home page still points to 2.4.10 as the download version.
I created a Google Translate plugin for both phpBB and MediaWiki that I could install here. It translates the current page to the user's selected language. I have no clue how many non-english users or posts we are getting currently. Is that of interest? It looks like the Forum only has British English installed.
Did anyone add IPv6 support? I'd like to do that at some point. Server operators should be able to run on a machine that only has IPv6 connectivity. Some thought needed here. How does the server register? Does it list all it's IPs? what happens if it has more than one IPv4 or IPv6 address? Do we validate the dns name given? The list server should probably not give IPv6 servers out to ipv4 only clients, but it probably should give ipv4 servers out to ipv6 clients. Should bans for ipv6 clients assume some larger mask? /64 at least? Do we show ::ffff:<ipv4> versions of client addresses in the list, or the native ipv4 everyone is used to?
I have server space I could host things on. I'll probably setup a server again just to get more involved again.
I wonder how much work these projects would be:
- BZFlag in Unity for mobile, etc.
- BZFlag in WebVR, perhaps in A-Frame or something similar.
I hopped on to IRC. I'll try to be there sometimes. Looks like I have no perms there anymore since the move off FreeNode years ago.
Do we have a Discord server? I really like having a Minecraft admin channel tied to discord so I can promote/demote/kick/ban without having to join the server or ssh in.
Has crs32 been seen in recent history? I think he's been at Pixar for over 20 years now.
