If anyone knows #Go and is looking for a project to help out with, Go-based #Signal protocol implementation library and a native #SailfishOS Signal client using it are in dire need of love:
Yes, I also prefer truly decentralized protocols, but Signal is where it's at currently with a lot of people, and it's way better than other popular options... So, we need independent clients.
@pettter well they insist that unofficial clients do not use the word "Signal" in the name. Other than that, Whisperfish seems to work fine (modulo bugs and missing functionality) so far.
@strypey yeah, I am more interested in Briar (time to go full p2p decentralized).
I need Signal for work. It took 3 years to move 200+ journalists to Signal, I don't have 3 more years to now move them to Wire, unless Signal really fscks up big time.
> that's no reason to encourage people to do unpaid work for them.
Moxie fights the idea of independent clients, so this is far from working *for them*. In fact, it seems to be the opposite.
> Why support Sailfish?
Because it's the only usable mobile OS that is so open and comes with actual support.
> Did you read OP of the first link I posted?
Yes, and I agree with most of it. But I need to communicate with people where my choices are Signal or Viber/Telegram/Whatsapp.
Wire does look for Google Play Services but has another solution for the case that it can`t find it. It also works without it.
Wire does not distribute it`s app on FDroid but on their website.
But doesn`t Wire still store unencrypted Metadata on their server or has it been solved already?
