## Project
This project is about freedom, privacy and choice. We want to enable people to chat with one another in a safe way. Thus supporting encryption (OTR, PGP, OMEMO, OX) and being decentralized, meaning everyone can run their own server. We believe [XMPP](https://xmpp.org/) is a great proven protocol with an excellent community serving this purpose well.
Feel free to follow us on [twitter](https://twitter.com/profanityim), join our [mailing list](https://lists.posteo.de/listinfo/profanity) and/or [MUC](xmpp:profanity@rooms.dismail.de?join).

Our [user guide](https://profanity-im.github.io/userguide.html) contains an [install](https://profanity-im.github.io/guide/latest/install.html) section and a section for [building](https://profanity-im.github.io/guide/latest/build.html) from source yourself.
## Donations
We would highly appreciate it if you support us via [GitHub Sponsors](https://github.com/sponsors/jubalh/). Especially if you make feature requests or need help using Profanity.
Sponsoring enables us to spend time on Profanity.

Issues backed by a sponsor will be tagged with the [sponsored](https://github.com/profanity-im/profanity/issues?q=label%3Asponsored+) label.
Feature requests that we consider out of scope, either because of interest or because of time needed to implement them, will be marked with the [unfunded](https://github.com/profanity-im/profanity/issues?q=label%3Aunfunded) label.
