Depends on whether you plan to participate in its development. That includes participation via documentation, testing, etc, not just code.

Well, if it is allowed, I'd certainly be willing to.

As I mentioned in my first post in the Development room, coding is not exactly my strong point, though I have had to make my way through it -it's not that coding doesn't interest me-.

But, as also mentioned, I do have some time for reading and testing, for example. Also open to other types of participation if needed.

If I may mention it, my primary interests would be the XMPP server and the upcoming Webcit-ng interface; improving them -and speeding their development if possible-. But if you say "right now we need to fix this and that first" I adapt as well.

I know this is the 2nd time I hint at all of this, and of course don't intend to annoy people with the same arguments neither. It's just that, just saying "I wanna help, tell me where to" sounded kinda rude and even a bit retarded. And with the lack of feedback in the Development room I thought "then I should at least begin somewhere", which was the XMPP server (currently learning how to use gdb).

But, if you could mention where or how some participation is needed, it would be very helpful.

If I'm missing something about how things work here, please tell.

Thanks in advance.

Helping debug a protocol is *absolutely* good in the development room, even if you don't write a single line of code. It's actually the hard part and is super welcome.

The reason the development room isn't public is because people were using it for random feature requests and other way-off-topic things. The only time a feature request would be welcome there would be "I want to implement XYZ; can you tell me which API's I should use, and are you willing to accept such an addition to the project mainline".

I notice that Fidonet is still very much alive and kicking. Perhaps it could be incorporated as a replacement since its tools are very well developed and still incorporated in the average *nix system.

Is there still a main FidoNet cluster out there? And if so, is it any good?

Gads... Fidonet? Amazing.

Google for "fidonet nodelist". There are still thousands around the place.

I'm also wondering whether shared calendars / wiki's / etc can be shared via SMTP. Were they in the first place?

Well ... I suppose you could take a Calendar or Wiki room and add mailing list recipients to it. I'm not sure what that would accomplish though. You might have better luck with RSS for that.

On the fidonet topic:

Fidonet seems to be much the same with the spam and flame wars.

Another echomail net that is much more friendly and active (several hundred nodes)  is called fsxNet.

The fidonet technology will still need to be integrated somehow for other fidotech networks though.

Well ... I'm not going to build FidoNet technology directly into Citadel, but if there is a standalone tosser/fetcher that runs on Linux, I could write an external program to convert between data formats and import/export the data to Citadel.

Is there such a thing?

In addition to citadel, I also run mystic bbs which has the following features, http://mysticbbs.com/features.html

I have not really played with many of the options listed in the top "Internet/Network Integration"  but I wonder if NNTP might be a way to integrate the two?  Or maybe the mentioned "email based echomail".

Hi folks,

I ran a Linux FidoNet BBS back in the day. There is software to gate
FidoNet netmail to email, and FidoNet Echomail to Usenet.

There is software listed here:

http://bellman.zcu.cz/~flidr/fido/

I recall using ifcico, but I an unsure if I used Fidogate or ifgate with
it. I suspect ifgate.

I believe ifgate and ifmail will convert directly between SMTP/NNTP and fidonet packets.

From the command line: sudo apt-get install `grep-available -i fido -ns package | sort -u

I'd also thought to use ifcico/ifgate (which are still in
Debian/Ubuntu & which is somewhat simpler in some ways) and Citadels
email interface in order to gate both ways between FTN/Fidonet and
Citadel but I've not really had a chance to work on it...

Import/export between FTN/FIdonet 'packet' files (which is the basic
interface between FTN systems for netmail & echomail) and Citadel
rooms would do it...
