Hi @Manoj, I really hope you don’t read this as an attack, there is no attack and no need to get defensive as a result.
I’m not a “technical person” myself, maybe tech adjacent. So I wouldn’t go to github or look at any sort of source code. I do, however, very much care about the question where those apps come from. And it just seems like not a very complicated question.
Can you in easy terms explain why it is taking so long? I think everyone in this thread would be happy with an imperfect answer, as long as its respectful and brings across that /e/ want to be transparent.
@Romey makes some good points. I’m not currently recommending /e/ to regular users because of usability issues. I know this needs time to figure out and I have high hopes /e/ will soon be in a place to do that.
The more “tech adjacent” folks I have talked to about /e/ have noticed this thread and are currently putting their research on hold and not taking the plunge because of the lack of information.
I don’t understand why this is a complicated question? What is the hold up with responding to user queries, even if writing an official document for the website takes longer?
The combination between not getting a response here and not really getting a why either is not encouraging. Even if there’s nothing dodgy happening at all, and there are good reasons for the hold up, it looks dodgy from the outside. If there are reasons for the delay, maybe let us know what those are?
