Re: What's an encryption product (in this context)?
The problem there is that you are working on community software and the community will review it, question your "weird code" then dismiss you from the project. You are coming from the angle that a "secret CIA/FBI coding operative" is going to be more clever than any single person already well versed in their own codebase. It most likely will not happen at that level, much easier at the hosting side, but then the community will notice your "additives" and kick you down the road. You could hijack the downloads with your "special package" for a time, I suspect. but not long.
To expand to the comments in general; WHY ARE YOU WAITING SO LONG?! People, people, people! Ed Snowden gave up the info several years ago; the NSA/CIA/FBI spies on ALL data routed through the US and world. Every single entity that gives more than two shits about real, honest, Internet, and general computing, security should have been working 24/7 to get out this trap laid down by those above mentioned Acronyms. It's been three whole years and you're still taking about "if" and "someday" "we'll get a fucking clue and divorce any products hosted in a known spy zone"; the USA and all connected networks therein. There should have been a Euro-version of every major web site online by now, so that I, and a US Citizen, can get out of the fucking trap too! God fucking dammit, get your shit together and get this working already!!1! Your personal data in a US cloud, or routed through a US access/peering point, or on a major US crap site (twitter, farcebook, Goopal, etc) is not personal anymore. There are plenty of good projects not hosted here that can be leveraged to make a stand and build a nice Internet zone that will not allow snooping or other decryptions. Come ON!
