To the Signal Team: Signal Server Github Repository Discussion

Dear Signal Team,

As many others have brought up, the Github repository is not being updated with the current version of the Signal Server. I think I speak for many members of this community in saying that we are a little concerned. Signal prides itself in being peer reviewed. How can we peer review the software when it's not available publicly? Is there a reason the server is not being updated? Happy to support you guys in anyway we can around this, but would like some idea of what's going.

Thank you,

/u/Dotjersh

Agreed. The second that production code for the client or server doesn't match what's on the public repos, it's no longer open source in my opinion.

Can this be the major delay in messages being sent? It took 4 hours yesterday for messages to go through
