    It's foss, even the server side code.

    looks like it is up to current commits:

    The software they’re using is open-source, so basically anyone can audit it. I’m not a fan of all of their decisions (especially that crypto thing they added to the app), but overall it feels like the most pragmatic thing to use

  • Add support for changing phone numbers | 2021-10-01

    Down due to a hosting outage, but back up currently.

    This is why I would wanna see user-hosted instances of the Signal server [0] plugging in to the network and supporting traffic.

    I think a zero-config server app install of Signal server would work great for decentralizing the messaging platform too, but unfortunately it's not set up to handle that yet.

  • Going phoneless, best text/VOIP that can be used like a phone number on Linux?
    For what it's worth, the server for the Signal client is also open source (although there was some controversy recently based around the speed of which they kept their github source up to date), so in theory if the Signal Foundation suddenly became shady, the server/client could be forked and hosted elsewhere. But that would still cause a division of users, as everyone would have to be on the same server to communicate, unlike Matrix which appears to be fully distributed.

    Isn't this the Signal server code though?

    No PR with name that would suggest the fix in the client

    and no PR from OP in the opensource part of the server

  • How to Create a Broadcast Network | 2021-07-17
    Roll out of a function similar to this seems imminent, but it's not currently possible.
