matrix rant 

Dear #matrix developers. Riot lets me know that "sessions" are not "trusted" as a reason of why encryptions fails. What about letting me know what "sessions" and "trusted" means first? 😖

@mray or that if I verify a device on my phone, I want it verified on my desktop too. Don't need to verify on every device I own.

@ted you are brave to even go that far, I guess they kind of lost me with the whole thing of "Export your keys with a new password *right now* or lose all encrypted chat by signing out."I can only look forward to them making progress on the #UX in that regard…

@mray yeah, I honestly thought exporting my keys would allow me to verify between devices. Nope.

@ted @mray the keys exported there are just the message keys, not the device keys or the trust store

@jcgruenhage yes, I understand that now, it wasn't clear to me at the time.

The dialogs and the messaging need to be refined, user tested, and refined some more.
