[jitsi-dev] What does "cobri" mean


#1

Hi Lubomir,

Rev 9805 says" Implements automatic selection of the (experimental) cobri support for conference calls."

Conference calls sounds good - as I'm planning some tests on that. What does "cobri" mean in this context. I haven't found anything on the Net for that. An internal term???

Regards
Conrad

It's meant to be a surprise :). In a few words though - "cobri" stands
for "conference bridge". We'll submit a XEP to the XSF shortly.

If you offered rsync or some way to mirror the site, I'm sure others,
including myself, would be happy to provide mirrors. This doesn't help
now, but can in the future.

It seems that there's an outage at the university of Strasbourg, that
started last night and that seems to be going on. Not sure how long it
would continue. Friday and Monday are bank holidays in France so worst case
scenario is we wait till Tuesday.

Why don't just use a distributed global distribution service by opening an account on http://sourceforge.net ?

Rather than put your trust into a 3rd party commercial company, just
offer torrents.

What negative side-effects could exist by uploading archives on third party (commercial or not) distribution networks aside from having a well redundant distribution network ?

Also try googling "jitsi download" and see the first pages of result...jitsi is available publicly for download and as such is already hosted on a a number of different "entities".

Torrents are a very valid alternative yes, but if tracker finish to be hosted on the same offline machine... :slight_smile:

It's not the distribution itself. It's the integration in our build system.
We need ssh access and enough space (i.e. ~5GB) to be comfortable. I'd have
to check SF these days and see if they offer such conditions. Even if they
do however we'd have to implement the integration in the build system and,
given the normally good availability we have with the university of
Strasbourg, this is not likely to get to the top of our todo list in the
immediate future.

If I remember correctly sf.net does allow ssh access but I don't remember how much space they give away for every account.
Anyway you could probably use it just for release distribution and as a parallel/backup distribution network, without change much of your infrastructure, 'cause...you see good availability it's an opinion-able definition :wink:
