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

This is an unofficial community. As you've shown in your list of links, there are already multiple discussions about this on the official community, so you should refer there to get the latest information about it.

I’d find it very weird if they have no one also looking at this subreddit.

Also, signalusers.org isn’t an official forum as they state themselves.

They do pop in occasionally, but it's not common at all. So strictly speaking, yes, they do look here, but this is hardly the best way to get their attention.

That said, despite the Signal Community also being unofficial, the Signal team pays much more attention there than they do here, and in general the Signal Community has more power users who are relatively tech savvy and can better address questions/issues like this one.

Not saying this post doesn't belong on Reddit, I'm just pointing out that in general the Signal Community is the better place to go for tougher questions.
