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.

#InfoSec #FreeSoftware

@rysiek hasn't #Signal demanded people not connect third-party clients to their servers? In fact, any binaries not distributed by them (they refuse to let #FDroid distribute their app). These are only two of many reasons not to support Signal with your unpaid time:

I'd recommend working on a native #SailFish client for #Wire instead. They are a) already close to feature parity with Signal b) actively working towards server>server federation:

@ilpianista @strypey yeah, and looks like Wire cannot work without GCM? Whereas Signal website build APK does work without GCM, AFAIK (been using it on Sailfish before).

@rysiek @ilpianista @strypey

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?



@rysiek @ilpianista @strypey

Why doesn't wire distribute its app on F-Droid by the way?
