Part of the ad points out:
We’ve been working hard to build a secure, easy-to-use password manager for individuals and groups. We’ve made great progress and we believe that the community can help us accomplish even more. With that in mind, we’re excited to be receiving advice and assistance from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in transitioning Mitro to a sustainable, community-run project (see the EFF’s announcement). The service will continue to operate as-is for the foreseeable future. To learn more and to see how you can help, please join the discussion on the mailing list.
Add to that the service will continue to operate as is expected in the future, and those interested in more information and join efforts have available a distribution list.
It is striking that the product offers Mitro not going to be closed, as has happened in other acquisitions, more focused on attracting talent to the team, giving flexibility to the founders to continue to keep their jobs independently.
