And of course, we're contributing back to Exodus as much as possible. My personal view is that Exodus should be the canonical database of all this stuff but I'm not sure they want the noise of this discovery process in their issue tracker.

We are building upon Exodus' work, this is a vast project. Exodus is currently tracking libraries and domain names. Turns out, there are a number of other things that haven't been mapped out yet, like API keys and Broadcast Receivers.

We're looking to map out all technical details for how #Android apps are #tracking people, if you have ideas or more info, please submit them to our issue tracker! gitlab.com/trackingthetrackers #TrackingTheTrackers

is proving to be quite -able, humans need to stay in charge, with only as an assistant:

After more than ten years working to remove in software, I now see that tracking usage without tracking people is possible. Tracking is essential to , so is still full of moral hazards

It has been interesting to dig into this, the vast body of knowledge has gotten us started, but it isn't the same problem, so similar but different tools are needed.

I'm digging into tools these days, provides lookups if a string is a known domain name, and returns all strings that resolve to an IP address. The approach seems much more useful since it doesn't need a pre-prepared list of "known domain names", instead provides that

One murky area of is what the do with the all the they inevitably collect. Big mirrors like mirrors.kernel.org/ have no apparent public . Purdue PLUG plug-mirror.rcac.purdue.edu/in and FAU ftp.fau.de/datenschutz post theirs

OpenPush - A Free, #Decentralized Push Messaging Framework for #Android

"Push messages are an essential part of connected mobile devices. They are also one of the critical missing pieces in the #opensource Android ecosystem. Until now, free Android apps would either need to implement their own push notification system, do without any push messaging or use the proprietary Google Cloud Messaging service."
