    @npmccallum i do remember us having issues with encryption which was optional
    from what i remember, we had to turn encryption off in the room

    Anyone with the iOS app have any issues?

    @axelsimon
    as far as i know, the iOS version and Android version are very similar (if not essentially the same) as built from the same SDK
    otherwise, i'd say that @whitebrandy's comments are spot on
    encryption has been a work in progress for a while
    it's progressed leaps and bounds in the past couple years however, to the point we are weeks/month(s) away from the matrix team flipping the switch and enabling E2E encryption on all new 1-1 chats
    it's always going to be a choice on rooms, as some rooms are small and some big, and it makes little sense in what are public rooms to add the overhead of encrypting each message for every device of every user in a room. If it's public, it probably doesn't need encryption (though it can still be enabled)
    @mbestavros RiotX has some nice new things, like swiping on a message to reply to that message, but it's missing other things like, hmm, answering an audio call :)

    I'm not super impressed by matrix ATM.
    Functionality is kind of simple. UI is often non-intuitive.
    Seems slow.
    Maybe I'd get a better experience with the Android client.

    @axelsimon
    UI is a pain point, the next version of Riot should fix that (/ improve it a lot)
    functionality is actually quite rich, you can use markdown for text, insert pictures /videos, make calls, use sticker packs

    @mbestavros
    We should not make decisions based on promised features, IMO
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    but i fully agree it feels a bit slow sometimes (the downside of how their state-resolution algorithm works for now, from what i understand)
    Mark Bestavros
    @mbestavros
    I agree with Nathaniel that it's not very good UX
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    it's not that bad, but i don't disagree with you fundamentally
    the slowness would also be due to being on the main, overloaded server
    state-resolution would be faster if we were all on the same server
    i see your point @mbestavros, i'm clearly biased by the fact i've met the team and have a good opinion of them and their intentions
    the Android client will feel mostly the same i think
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    just tried to explain "state-resolution" to my girlfriend :D
    (i think it went well)

    sorry to hear, hope it goes well!

    (someone from the matrix team just confirmed matrix.org is seeing a lot of trafic this month and "if you're using matrix.org atm you're going to have a bad time")

    oh this easy, just run our own matrix server! :)

    @axelsimon @haraldh Thanks. All is fine. Ended up being just a rock stuck against the brake rotor.

    if anyone else is interested, this is mostly off-topic (but not entirely) i'm going to be attending the (somewhat overly optimistically entitled) Open Tech Will Save Us event in 15 min https://twitter.com/matrixdotorg/status/1247872028876693504
    there will be presentations of matrix and riot, which is how it somewhat relates to Enarx

    It would be great to have mentors for the two new faces who's shown an interest. 1) engineering/programming person; 2) technical docs person.
    I think that Shaun volunteered for #2.
    Anyone else for #1?
    Nathaniel McCallum
    @npmccallum
    @MikeCamel Perhaps we can have a mentorship bug and assign someone to it?

    I'm happy to be a mentor if appropriate / helpful

    Likewise!

    Hi, I joined your daily meeting yesterday. Thanks for speaking with me! I wasn't able to find any documentation online about how to get started with any SME instances. IBM casually but vaguely mentioned earlier this month that they will start to support this, but I wasn't able to find more detailed information. Is it possible to access such instances via Red Hat services? Is SME only supported on Linux? I understand that you're developing an interface to help people make use of memory encryption. Do you have any documentation explaining what your product will support? Thanks again :)

    @npmccallum
    @jmstoller_gitlab We aren't using AMD SME. We're using AMD SEV.
    (There is currently a lot of confusion around these technologies.)
    Jon Stoller
    @jmstoller_gitlab
    Ah thanks @npmccallum , I actually meant SME or SEV. We're interested in both!
    Nathaniel McCallum
    @npmccallum
    SEV is basically a superset of SME plus other features.

    @joncmu
    @jmstoller_gitlab I can answer any questions you might have about IBM's solution announced earlier this month.
    Jon Stoller
    @jmstoller_gitlab
    Thank you @joncmu, I'm wondering how to set up a python application to work with SEV. Is there some documentation on how this would work? I assume this isn't something that can be done entirely in Python but would require some OS level intervention. I'm not sure where to start, so I'd appreciate any guidance.
    Nathaniel McCallum
    @npmccallum
    @jmstoller_gitlab As of today, there isn't a straightforward path to a fully attested and encrypted deployment of Python on SEV.
