Yesterday, I finally pushed my current source code implementing the Exposure Notification API to the @microg git repository.
This will allow using apps that use the Google/Apple framework for COVID-19 contact tracing on Android devices without the Google tracking it usually involves.
The current code is already functional, but still needs some improvements before it's ready for general public, but I am certain it's going to make it in the next @microg release.
Finally released microG Services Core v0.2.11.202414 🎉
- Includes early version of UnifiedNlp 2.0
- Works better with Android 10
- As always: tons of fixes and compatibility updates
Available on the microG F-Droid repository or via https://github.com/microg/android_packages_apps_GmsCore/releases/tag/v0.2.11.202414
Ich musste Google ein paar deutliche Takte rüberschieben
new in-depth analysis of #GoogleApple #ContactTracing apps: "[The #Google part]... seems to call home every ~20 minutes and shares the handset IMEI, SIM serial, phone number, email address and WiFi MAC address and lots of still-to-be-decoded data with Google. (Presumably more detailed app telemetry.)" https://www.scss.tcd.ie/Doug.Leith/pubs/contact_tracing_app_traffic.pdf
I am not using reddit under the username mar-v-in. And microG development will continue. https://gist.github.com/mar-v-in/ad8d220ea4220638c0e5861cf062e844
Why are people making up such things?
FOSS/proprietary moaning, Android
Our app is entirely Open Source! See for yourself: all our code on Github is under a FOSS license.
*Proceeds to statically link against proprietary libraries and include these into the deliverable binary*
*Calls the result an Open Source app*

Facebook acquires OpenStreetMap partner Mapillary -
So Mapillary, the "Street View" part of OpenStreetMap (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapillary), based on crowdsourcing people's photos for their "open data" project.... has been bought by Facebook 🙄
It's unacceptable if Members of the European Parliament have to use a service provided by an American company and agree to their Terms of Service in order to exercise the mandate. Representing citizens must not be conditioned upon using iCloud. https://www.kolaja.eu/en/post/20200617-remote_voting_in_the_european_parliament_why_using_ivote_is_a_strategic_mistake/
Note that if you have a bounty posted before June 30, 2018 and do not redeploy it, it will be seized July 1, even if the issue is solved within the next 14 days, as one needs to wait 14 days after solving an issue before being able to claim the bounty.
This is a deliberate scam. #bountysource
#bountysource changed their ToS such that bounties that have been posted more than 2 years ago will be seized by them (probably to fund the blockchain company that bought bountysource a while back). The change will become active July 1. If you have any bounties on bountysource posted before June 30, 2018 you can ask to redeploy your bounty on a new issue once.
@microg will no longer advertise the use of bountysource for issue bounties. Please refrain from posting new bounties there.
Beschwerde über Microsoft ging gerade ans BayLDA raus.
Ein Lob an dieser Stelle: das Beschwerdefomular auf der Webseite des BayLDA wurde noch im Browser PGP-Verschlüsselt und dann per TLS abgeschickt. Damit Antworten auch verschlüsselt geschickt werden können, enthält das Formular ein Feld für den PGP Public Key 👍
@kuketzblog @ulrichkelber Wer ist denn so zuständig um sich darüber zu beschweren, "falls" Microsoft in seiner mobilen Outlook App für Android bei Benutzung einer privaten e-Mail-Adresse via IMAP:
- entgegen der Behauptung in der FAQ die IMAP-Zugangsdaten auf Microsoft-Servern speichert und regelmäßig benutzt um sich auf dem IMAP-Server einzuloggen
- e-Mails ohne vorherige Zustimmung an eine Drittpartei weiterleitet (zumindest Absender-Name und -e-Mail-Adresse, Betreff und Abriss des Inhalts)
During this year's Google Summer of Code, Anmol will implement optional real-time texting in Dino. Real-time text means that text is transmitted and displayed to the receiver while it is being typed. Anmol will write about his progress here: https://wolfieanmol.github.io/gsoc-blog/ #Dino #XMPP #GSoC

The past weekend some members of the XMPP community gathered in Düsseldorf to work on the next iteration of the OMEMO End to End Encryption Specification. All of us agree that the result - version 0.4 of XEP-0384 - is a huge step forward and better than ever! https://blog.jabberhead.tk/2020/03/10/omemo-specification-sprint/
