I don't really like Signal. I don't like Telegram either. Wire is acceptable, but also clunky. It kinda sucks that people have to basically choose and commit to one app with all of their contacts now, if IM apps were federated like e-mail and Mastodon you could just keep talking to your friends from wherever.
@Gargron i hope something based on element can be this. perhaps something on your phone that forwards any sms messages into it?
@TheDavidDelta @tomasekeli @adfeno @Gargron as I understand it, most permissive licences would allow anybody to re-release a project under GPL. If that's true, then it doesnt really matter in practice; we can't lose anything. For a project trying to get off the ground, giving companies the OPTION of using the code without any real conditions is probably good.
