@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:
github.com/privacytoolsIO/priv

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:
github.com/wireapp/wire-server

@rysiek @strypey What's the motivation for Whisper doing this? Is it just security through control?

Signal does show that people will adopt the right apps. I've been pleasantly surprised how many friends and family like it.

For example, subscriptions to ticket trackers could be sold

You wanna open a ticket ?

You need to buy a 10$ annual subscription

Reading and triaging bugs is work and it should be payed

If that makes you outraged you are probably forgetting the "free" is intended as in freedom, not as in beer

@AbbieNormal @rysiek @sullybiker @strypey
Well, in many cases the developer would be happy if people reported the bug. You want to know when you've made a mistake, right?

Feature requests OTOH....

@Wolf480pl feature requests are also useful if you're a developer who cares about #UX, as opposed to one who's scratching their own itch and sharing the results. What would be great is a tracker, where devs could give a time estimate for the feature, and an hourly rate, and users who want the feature could contribute until the required amount is raised. All within the same UI not on a separate site like #BountySource

Yes I already read about Gitea in the past

I just didn't know that issues allowed the things that were discussed in this thread
