Hi all, just wanted to point out to a new open source alternative to BTSync - syncthing https://github.com/calmh/syncthing There are a lot of questions/requests whether BTSync will be opensource. So in meantime this may be alternative for those who find open source important and necessary for security reasons. Accesible open source means possibility of independent security auditing and knowing what the application is really doing. Otherwise it may very well be trojan horse. I hope this will motivate BTSync team to reconsider their position on open sourcing BTSync.
From what I've read in other posts it seems like you don't want to open-source the btsync app itself. But are there plans to provide a protocol specification (such that devs could write their own apps that communicate with the official clients)? This would enable an ecosystem to grow around your official app like it happened with bittorrent.
