Conflict of interest[edit]

Hi, I improved a bit the article but I have a conflict of interest with the article. GNUtoo(my point of views(for npov)) | talk 12:03, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

I am going to add more informations to the page, though I have a conflict of interest with the article as I am the current Replicant main developer. PaulKocialkowski (talk) 16:49, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Paul, using "summer" as the start date is ambiguous as it could mean the middle of the year of Dec, Jan + Feb as Summer. DaveQB (talk) 06:37, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

External References[edit]

I added some external reference because of the Notability issue

Stagefright security flaw[edit]

Please add info about potential use of Replicant to protect from the Stagefright Security Flaw.-96.233.20.34 (talk) 21:59, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a collection of unverifiable speculation. See WP:SPECULATION. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 22:22, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
By all means, indeed -- let us gather the best real information about Stagefright! Which WP articles are most relevant?-96.233.20.34 (talk) 14:11, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
There is already an article about it: Stagefright (bug). That wasn't my point. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these two Wikipedia policies: WP:Verifiability and WP:SPECULATION. If you can't find a reliable source (preferably independent of Replicant) that says that Replicant can be "used to protect from the Stagefright Security Flaw", even "potentially", then we can't make that claim in this article. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 14:42, 28 July 2015 (UTC) [edited 16:15, 28 July 2015 (UTC)]
Hello! There are currently no indications that Replicant has already included patches against the Stagefright bug. Please see this ticket for further information. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 16:31, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for the new Stagefright WP article, which did not exist when I started this Talk topic. I hope that article gets further fleshed out over the coming days -- almost a billion users are affected! And thanks extremely much Dsimic for this very helpful link to the Bug #1287 Stagefright vulnerability Replicant ticket!!! If Replicant does protect from Stagefright, it becomes much more important than formerly, since many stock Android users have no current good options, and may never. If it is determined that Replicant does not protect from Stagefright and is unlikely to in future, that would be good information to mention in the article.-96.233.20.34 (talk) 17:30, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) Let's hope that the Stagefright bug will increase the overall awareness of the lack of a proper update system for numerous Android devices. It's somewhat like plane crashes, which unfortunately must happen for certain aircraft design changes to be made. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 19:23, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Ambiguity[edit]

'many members of the original Replicant team retired from the project', that line raises some concerns re. the health of these members...Noiv (talk) 19:45, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
