[Members] [editor] Problems with pull request of xmpp.org (not directly XEP related)

Hello Jonas

Thanks. It makes sense now that you say it. I made an update to the file, and I hope the BOM has been removed. I used Windows Notepad to edit the file, and it didn’t have an option to save the file without the BOM. But Notepad++ seems to have that option.

What is the next step? It seems my change has been added to the previous pull request.

Best regards,

Peter Waher

I replied on the GitHub PR. For the record, the issue is that Peters editor
apparently writes Byte Order Marks for UTF-8, which are not supported by our
tooling (the fact that tools like jq can deal with that adds to the

The error message the tooling creates isn’t helpful at all, unfortunately.

kind regards,
