If any devs are interested in a side project; I’m still up for building a chat app with the amazing UX of Instagram Threads, but running on https://matrix.org/ (which is the future) instead of Facebook (which is the devil)

Remember that recent blog post from the lead developer of Signal exploiting a vulnerability in an old version of FFmpeg? Well Audacity was using a vendored version of FFmpeg 2.2.2, which was released 2014-05-04, until 4 days ago.
The more I look around the Audacity GitHub repository, the more concerned I am. They have a one line pull request fixing a security vulnerability which has received zero response from a maintainer in 6 months and now they're trying to vendor libcurl. This is software distributed to millions of people. WTAF? https://github.com/audacity/audacity/pull/835#issuecomment-835706808
@datenschutzratgeber @e_mydata to make sure potential users can "trust" that "privacy-respecting" is more than a slogan (no offense meant): open-source would be a must.

Would be awesome to have! And please also consider TTS
Would you use a privacy-respecting assistant on your smartphone (similar to Siri, Alexa etc.)?

"If not for cryptocurrency, these services would still be available."
Another victim of crypto mining, how much do we have to have before people really realise this is a terrible idea?
