Hello, I don't have much time now for all the details, but basically I've been interviewing people for about 2 weeks, and decided to hire a company called Cyber Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. , https://www.cisin.com, to work on PyBitmessage. They have over 650 employees and can provide whichever programming language or specialisation I need, they also have their own infrastructure and project management tools so that makes things easier for me. At the beginning the code will be cleaned up and documentation produced which can be used for other developers. If you contribute on GitHub, you'll soon see Mahendra from CIS reviewing your pull requests (I'll keep reviewing them as well). Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

How you made sure they are not working for {three letter combination} agency? How we can be sure that you are you, since your new private address is still not connected to your private GPG key? All of this could be a great takeover of BM by {three letter combination} agency.

> How you made sure they are not working for {three letter > combination} agency? Everything is open source and/or on github, and there is going to be a larger emphasis on well defined coding standards. I enabled all the checks on codacy, and will write additional github hooks for additional checks. You'll be able to verify all on github. I don't have the resources to check if xy is working for a 3LA. That goes for any developer, not only for CIS. > How we can be sure that you are you, since your new private address > is still not connected to your private GPG key? My new "PyBitmessage suport" address (this) is a part of PyBitmessage 0.6.3.2 which is signed by my GPG key. > All of this could be a great takeover of BM by {three letter > combination} agency. Or, maybe they took over years ago and I'm just a stooge or a patsy. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

And more backdoors, so THEY can read all your private messages in real-time!

yeah sure, Mr Bond of Python Desk at NSA, who has failed to bury the "trusting trust" revelations etc. - too bad.
