ANDROID DEVELOPERS WANTED
FOSS developer Christian Schabesberger is looking for programmers for his project to provide the federal German Corona warning app with an open source Bluetooth tracing SDK, so that owners of phones with Google-free operating systems like Lineage or /e/ can use the app too.
Please help Christian! Please help the privacy community!
This project is called CoraLibre:
@pixelcode The problem currently is, that the CWA Devs already declined to not add the Huawei API, even though it's implementing the standard. As long as they don't change theit mind this will be useless effort.
@bionade24 @pixelcode Well, to fake the API names is possible, but hard (see MicroG, needs spoofing support in the OS), but isn't needed. When deploying your own fork of CWA you can switch the names automatically. What is needed is, that the API on the Bluetooth Interface stays the same, but this is specified by Google and Apple, Huawei reimplemented it, so why can't the open source community reimplemented it as well?
