I can’t find a recent thread along these specific lines, so:
What are people using to communicate over the signal network? How is it working for you? In particular on librem 5, but while many of us are waiting for that, also just linux desktop, and even pinephone (is that too far off topic?).
Has the Rust-ification of signal progressed much in the last year / 18 months or so? Has that made the job of the third-party clients easier? (@Be.ing ?) I think I understand Moxie’s opposition to interoperation with third-party clients – I agree in part with him and respect his ability and experience (and motivations), but I think something has to give. Of course Moxie has gone his own way recently, I don’t know how that will affect this, but I fear likely not in an especially positive way.
I read somewhere that the desktop client needs re-registration from time to time. True? I used signal-cli on my desktop, lacking a smart phone I use, and I wonder if that will stay working.
