The German tech magazine Golem shares my opinion:
"Signal-Server nicht mehr Open Source"
("Signal's server not open-source anymore")
The situation regarding #Signal's source code which hasn't been updated for about a year gets weirder and weirder:
When you open its commit history on 🔗 https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Server/commits/master, #GitHub now displays tons and tons of commits from the last months that fill the gap.
Is it possible that Signal has suddenly disclosed all the server updates to the public? Maybe due to criticism?
@datenschutzratgeber they used commits but they didn‘t pushed them. That’s why it looks like that. Seems not very uncommon to me. They did not push, because they developed a new payment feature. Doesn’t seem weird to me. I would have done the same, to not give governments the chance to cancel the project before it’s ready.
It is updated now (looks like the pressure was getting high the last days #signal ):
@datenschutzratgeber thats because github probably only is a mirror of their own git and they updated it as they released a new version.
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
