After finding itself in the spotlight of intense scrutiny and criticism for working with the People’s Republic of China to develop a censored version of its search engine for the communist country, Google late last year decided to scrap the controversial project, known as “Dragonfly” – or at least that’s what the company wanted both the public and its employees to think was happening.

It would appear as though Google’s Dragonfly project never actually went away as the company claimed, and is now simply being developed in secret – this, according to company insiders who decided to carry out their own private investigation into the matter.

According to The Intercept, these sources inside Google got tired of getting the runaround from Google executives, who’ve become increasingly less transparent about what’s really going on with Dragonfly. So they decided to take matters into their own hands, only to discover that the source code for Dragonfly is still being altered well into 2019.

Engineers and others who had previously been working on Dragonfly were told back in December by Google’s Caesar Sengupta, an executive in charge of the project, that they would soon be allocated to new projects funded by different “cost centers” – meaning they would no longer be tasked with any work related to Dragonfly. But despite being moved, these employees say that someone is still working on the project, even if it’s not them.

“The employees have been keeping tabs on repositories of code that are stored on Google’s computers, which they say is linked to Dragonfly,” writes Ryan Gallagher for The Intercept about the situation.

“The employees identified about 500 changes to the code in December, and more than 400 changes to the code between January and February of this year, which they believe indicates continued development of aspects of Dragonfly,” he further explains, adding that “[t]he employees say there are still some 100 workers allocated to the ‘cost center’ associated with Dragonfly, meaning that the company is maintaining a budget for potential ongoing work on the plan.”
