ok, well I guess you can glance in every once and a while
I just effectively want to talk about going over our style of data and if we could figure out a middle ground where he has incentive to post his data to mc data for use there
rather than maintaining his own format and data in his own repo
I said his -- meant they're , sorry...
their
jeez I'm really out of it today

ah
I think that's a lot of work
and after all I'm not sure we need a single format
if we can just have transformers from one to the other, then it's like we both have all the data
without having to choose json or xml
but yeah we can talk about it

@mhsjlw

yeah I attempted the converter
the issue is, though, that kripth's data is missing (or adding stuff) that mcdata doesn't need or doesn't have
Romain Beaumont
@rom1504
Jan 15 23:01
well yes
that's expected
so we can decide to add some stuff in mcdata, and import the missing stuff from other places
like for example I merge info from wiki.vg and from the mc wiki for entities
so
what matters is not really xml or json then
what matters is deciding what info are useful
maybe we can just add everything to both

well we need to figure out protocol stuff for sure
Romain Beaumont
@rom1504
Jan 15 23:14
ah
well
do they have a data file that described the protocol completely ?
afaik protodef is the only thing doing that for minecraft
by completely I mean every little type
not 50% of it being "native types"
