A bit curious of @purism to fork @Tusky / K9 Mail and not even mention that anywhere on their website or app listings?

Also I can note the following:
- What is the point of the forks? Do they even at least pre-fill the "social.librem.one" domain for users?
- Is the source even published at all? If not, it's violating GPL. I can't find anything on their Github, at least.

Oof, looks like @purism also forked "OpenVPN for Android" github.com/schwabe/ics-openvpn without mentioning, as well. Which is GPLv2.

And Librem Chat is just Riot for Android github.com/vector-im/riot-andr which is at least Apache 2.0... which still requires prominent notice of derivative work.

Comments? @purism

Like, the least a corporation could do is follow basic legality here, right? Or basic decency in stating that they just forked 4 popular Android apps and are calling that a service?

Actually, even the iOS apps are just forks of iOS apps (Amaroq and Riot at least -- I can't find the VPN app they probably forked). And no Librem Mail, because, well... there are no good email apps on iOS. 😩

OK, so I found @purism source at source.puri.sm (which wasn't advertised anywhere on the Librem One site or app listings, still). Looks like the source is published (and therefore not violating GPL), but this could still be put somewhere more prominent.

OK, now this is seriously interesting: 's fork of the server (known as ) has two particular changes that caught my eye.

First, they disabled the public timelines, as well as private posts: source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodo

Second, they disabled reports? source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodo

@trwnh Also interesting that they managed to get gargron to code these features for them
