In case any Erlang people happen to be interested in straightforward support for systemd's notification/watchdog features:

Next naming issue ahead! (Hardest problem in programming.)

If you were to publish a TURN server (written in Erlang), what name would you choose? Some suggestions:

During our next (virtual) XMPP meetup on Wednesday, 18:00 CEST, Daniel Gultsch and me will give an introduction to the technologies used for A/V calls with XMPP. Topics discussed will include Jingle, ICE/STUN/TURN, (S)RTP, and WebRTC. The meetup will take place on Jitsi Meet, see:

We'll also be streaming this meetup live to YouTube, so if you participate, you will be recorded. If you'd prefer to just listen, please use the YouTube stream:

Time required to fix an average bug in software: 10 minutes to code the fix, 20 minutes to write the commit message, 30 minutes to wait for the test suites to complete, 60 minutes to run Dialyzer for static type checking. (Yes, Erlang people, it's just a few seconds if you don't keep messing up your PLTs like I do.)

Added IPv6 support to 's built-in TURN server. Hardest problem, as usual, how to name the new option to specify the server's v6 address. Suggestions so far: turn_ip6, turn_v6_ip, turn_ip_v6, turn_ipv6, turn_ipv6_ip, turn_ipv6_addr, turn_ipv6_address.

Not reading any emails during the weekend feels like a terrific idea. Until it's Monday.
