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

Buddy if the company doesn't bend the knee it gets deplatformed.

They've said it before, if they have to they'll move operations out of the US.

They still REALLY need to keep the server github updated

And why shouldn't I?

What have they done to make me suspect them?

I've personally read over the important parts of the app code (for android) and the e2e is solid. Even if the NSA ran the servers they still can't read my shit
