Relationship of truecrypt.ch and ciphershed.org

Hi Everybody,

Long time TC user.

Just wondering about the relationship between the truecrypt.ch and ciphershed.org websites. Are the same people involved with both?

I know truecrypt.ch was created not long after the TC abandonment announcement and ciphershed.org was later.

The CipherShed team started as a small group of people who didn't like the direction that the TrueCrypt.ch group of people were taking the project in. It was many irrational problems like trying to turn the open source project into a money farm or dropping Windows support. I have had no clue what has been going on in that forum since this group started as I just stopped paying attention after I saw how outrageus things were, so I'm not sure what has changed since then on the TrueCrypt.ch end. The person who owns the TrueCrypt.ch website, Jos Doekbrijder, is supporting our development with the Pure-Privacy association and I think the two groups are trying to unify as a divided community isn't as good as a unified community. I think Jos and the Pure-Privacy association is basically managing the publicity of the CipherShed project as well as expenses like signing certificates for Windows development.

If you'd like to learn more about what's been discussed, you can look at the early mailing list history on http://www.freelists.org/archive/ciphershed/ and the rest of the history on https://lists.ciphershed.org/pipermail/devs/ and https://lists.ciphershed.org/pipermail/users/

Thanks for the history update.

Am I right in understanding that the freelists.org list is no longer used?
