[liberationtech] TrueCrypt: Status of Community Effort to keep on developments

So, let's restart.
I missed the "WebCrypto last call" interesting thread, particularly from
, and I do agree with some comments from Carlo or Anders, as a member
of the WG I still support the WebCrypto effort and will implement it
when available but unfortunately not very actively since my areas of
interest are not really part of the current proposal.
This is related to my point: whether we are talking about specifications
groups, bugs/enhancements reports, open source projects or anything else
where the community gets involved, the community is divided in people
getting paid to contribute and people not getting paid trying to
participate, improve the projects and raise their voice, which the
members of the first category find interesting when they like it (but
without rewarding the members of the second category and thinking that
they have all their time to contribute) and disregard when they don't
The weight and influence of the second category is very low, as a
perfect illustration I got a very nice and polite private message just
after the moderation of this thread from a superior member of the first
category who thinks he has the right to send me this kind of thing.
By "the open source model is not adapted", I meant in fact that for
anything related to the community there should be something like a
common fund managed by some non profit organization and funded by the
first category to reward the second category, so not based on personal
interests of the first category, openssl is an example, everybody uses
it, nobody funds it, nobody audits it.
Probably an utopia, but that's my opinion, it's obvious that the current
process leads to huge specifications mistakes and important bugs
For node-Tor/peersm project I have been litteraly harassed to put it
open source (and blocked sometimes because it was not open source, some
kind of censorship again). For what? So people can take it over if I
fail? I don't see this perspective very interesting, it's a js project
so much more transparent than anything else, open source or not, it will
become open source when/if appropriately funded.
