Oh, still nonFLOSS. Dissapointing.

Even with things they promise to open source, there’s always too much waiting involved when it should all be open from the start.

iirc they still haven’t undergone a security audit on that, and they’re obviously focused on security, given their target audience…

wikipedia says it’s under MIT licence which is compatible with GPL, so it must be FLOSS.

All server side is nonFree and some parts of the client side.

wow, I didn’t know. searched a bit and yeah, you’re right. their excuse is “it doesn’t add trust, because users have no way of verifying what code runs on our servers”. bullshit.

but does it matter for email services backed to be foss in practice? the main downside I can see is it makes self hosting impossible, but other than that does it matter?

ok, so my technical knowledge is limited, so correct if I’m wrong. I know that the content of emails is end to end encrypted (regardless of what runs on their backends), but emails have a header that can not be encrypted. so from what I understand, in practice it doesn’t matter that their backend is proprietary? because the header is exposed anyway and they can’t do anything about it? basically it’s the same problem with matrix, metadata can’t stay private, right?

still sucks that they’re not FOSS.

For example, one can be a Libre software advocate and wanting to use Tox and Jami and Briar only but if your colleagues, other parties/partners (you work with), family, friends etc. are not able or not willing to use that software then it is not going to work out.

I know, I still have to keep using whatsapp because of my college T_T

I’ve never seen great recommendations on this after looking around. Personally I plan on self-hosting, even if it’s not recommended…

I’ve seen Tutonota and Disroot being recommended.

Never heard of Disroot. My Tutanota got deleted because I didn’t use it (previously went protonmail)

Uff, I left the Fediverse in 2020 with the exception of Lemmy and Matrix.

I didn’t receive very well the elitism of some people away of the Mastodon.social circles (remember that there is a normal Fediverse and a weird one, so I speak about the weird one which is the best).

The RSS, sure. I should add it.

The forum… I forgot about it 😂.

The future plan is a VPS that my home server is connected to via Wireguard. Just trying to decide on a provider. Currently thinking ArticHost or BuyVM, but we’ll see…

Hmm. It’s some sort of OS distro with a bunch of self-hoster stuff preconfigured? I’ve already been running Ubuntu server v20 LTS for a while now as my base. Mix of KVM & Docker stuff for my various needs.

The proton mail app is still not on F-droid. Proton VPN is!
