Can you please enable OTR for your XMPP account?

Description

Greetings,

I tried to obtain a Tor download link from get_tor(at)riseup.net using OTR but your XMPP account doesn't seem to be set up for OTR.

Would you consider enabling that option? (Or perhaps there's a good reason for not enabling it?)

Thanks for creating so many alternative ways for people to get Tor.

Cheers!

Yes, we have considered adding OTR for the XMPP channel, but at that time we had some concerns about the security of the python implementations. We will certainly do this in the future.

You are welcome!

I think it might be worth considering implementing OMEMO instead of OTR on XMPP as it has started replacing OTR and would also support file transfer.

Both! Filed #28092 for OMEMO.

Make #28231 parent of GetTor distribution methods.
