If you are able to compile a binary that sha-256 matches the
distributed binary, yes, please do make your compilation script and
platform notes available.

No, do not send it to me, send it to the list.


As to the "uh?" above ...

Search results for info on this family of sourceforge applications
are slim and don't really inspire the level of confidence this type
of crypto software would typically require... empty profiles, empty
mailing lists, no CV's, no whitepapers (there is a goldbug manual),
no presentations... no obvious email addresses... the claim to be
working with EFF and CCC... and likely the same folks mimicing TBB
below ... all of which has been said before.

You seem to be the one most familiar with the projects, only one
on the net posting about them (plus Thomas), only one to know
anything, seemingly chatting in the devel channel...
 http://sourceforge.net/p/goldbug/mailman/goldbug-forum/

More people here would like to welcome these new projects provided
they meet some of the usual community standards suitable for crypto
projects. If you (or more specificaly, whoever is behind these) are
playing anonymous or somesuch, and this cluster of projects on
sourceforge is legit, accept my apologies, I'm sure you understand
where people are coming from.

Doing a little more digging and CC'ing some potential relevants
for comment...

 Regarding firefloo ...

I don't find any obvious forward references to SF from anyone
seemingly affiliated with qxmpp.
