Steven Barnhart (@stevebarnhart) wrote to an eMail address he had used before 
and received several replies from â??David.â?? The following snippets were taken 
from a twitter conversation which then took place between Steven Barnhart 
(@stevebarnhart) and Matthew Green (@matthew_d_green):

    TrueCrypt Developer â??Davidâ??: â??We were happy with the audit, it didn't 
spark anything. We worked hard on this for 10 years, nothing lasts forever.â??

    Steven Barnhart (Paraphrasing): Developer â??personallyâ?? feels that fork is 
harmful: â??The source is still available as a reference though.â??

    Steven Barnhart: â??I asked and it was clear from the reply that "he" 
believes forking's harmful because only they are really familiar w/code.â??

    Steven Barnhart: â??Also said no government contact except one time 
inquiring about a â??support contract.â?? â??

    TrueCrypt Developer â??Davidâ?? said: â??Bitlocker is â??good enoughâ?? and Windows 
was original â??goal of the project.â?? â??

    Quoting TrueCrypt Developer David: â??There is no longer interest.â??
