- It seems that there’s no mention as to where these apps came from. They are existing apps.
Social is Tusky, Mail is K9 Mail, Tunnel is PIA’s app on iOS and OpenVPN’s app on Android, and Chat is probably some existing Matrix client.
It’s not a problem that these apps exist and that you’re redistributing them. The problem lies in the lack of disclosure as to where the apps come from. The way that the One project is structured publicly makes it look like you want people to believe that Purism developers created these apps.
There’s no license besides “free software” that is publicly available regarding the apps.
The source code is available on your Gitlab instance, but there’s no prominent links to it anywhere on the project homepage or in any of the documentation.
Original Third Point
There is no source code for your modified version. Some of the apps in the bundle previously held licenses that do not permit the change of a license and therefore legally you are required to disclose your modified source code.
Please, I’m open to discussion and this is not me calling for the abandonment or boycott of the project. I see a lot of value in it and I think a lot of good can come of it. But I think all the work thus far will go down the drain if Purism doesn’t make right by the people it’s targeting.
I’m simply calling for the due discourse that free software deserves.
