For a good reason I have not added the references on which I base myself, because people here like to refer to something of which they want to believe that it is true. The part branded by echelon as allegedly "wrong" does not hit those who quote the I2P homepage "The I2P Software (I2P) / What is included"
but those who fill the homepage with facts - if echelon is right.
Also I spoke expressly of the "responsibility for the organization and development". Nevertheless the before said is also valid for the presented assumption, SusiMail and the I2P mail system would be two pairs of shoes. To argue, the mailsystem, would be operated by "private persons", is a smoke candle. Their operators are listed on the I2P homepage
next to the other "private persons" who contribute to the development.
At this point I will not go further into whether websites and forums sponsored by the I2P treasury can be considered as not belonging to I2P, or whether they have to be seen as an official part of the whole. Because this is about a piece of software, SusiMail, which in my opinion should have been put into its own web GUI years ago to be used autonomously.
Ok, to be picky as you noted the webpage: even there it is noted: Postmans Email Service. Not I2P Email Service. Postman in this is a private person, not the I2P dev team néither I2P.
Also IP is no organization, as it simply does not exist legalwise. It is just a group of people providing code and services to the people, and to be more precise the I2P dev team provide the code and the I2P router. Also it supports the (external provided) code of SusiMail.
And as I2P does not exist legalwise, it does not have any treasury which may or may not sponsor any service, forums, or website. And in this, those do not belong to I2P, but are dedicated to the I2P project.
others may see it different, but thats the legal view/by law on this. There is no legal entity and in this, everything is run by private individuals, which may call themself I2P group/dev team.
