I've written a (long-ish) proposal to make 's latest view useful again: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient

Feel free to join in on that discussion if that interests you. I'd especially appreaciate input from people using F-Droid with a non-English locale.

(and ) use in email only mode which behaves very similar then. is still a more complex dependency, so if you don't need any of the extended functionality, it might be a bit overkill.

I've just released a first beta of : bubu1.eu/fdroidclassic/fdroid/

This comes with it's own f-droid repo preconfigured so it will prompt you to update itself.

Or you can add the repository to your existing client and install F-Droid Classic form there: bubu1.eu/fdroidclassic/fdroid/

Read more about the project here: gitlab.com/Bubu/fdroidclassic/

The slides of my talk from yesterday are now online here: bubu1.eu/fdroid_fsfe_berlin_fe

It contains some interesting stats about F-Droid over the last year.

Ich halte am Donnerstag einen Vortag über bei der FSFE Berlin.

Wer mag kann vorbeikommen!


It you want some stickers find me tomorrow at ! (I'll probably drop a bunch with the again as well.)

Just found a neat little game on .

2050 (A game loosely based on 2048, but with circles instead of squares) - f-droid.org/app/org.mattvchand

One of my side-projects is an alternative client resurrecting the classic UI from before the 1.0 release.

Here's the list of things still to be fixed before an initial release: gitlab.com/Bubu/fdroidclassic/

One of the missing pieces is a proper icon which should resemble a retro/lo-fi version of the F-Droid robot. Anyone up for giving this a go?
I'm not a designer, so if nobody steps up the icon will be replaced by programmer art before release :D.

If you want stickers you can get them at sticker exchange. If you need more for your hacker space, find me.

Stickers dropped at @c3stoc, marked as arrived in Engelsystem, GSM phone registered. I think I'll call it a day for now.

There will be stickers for . And .

(Hopefully. If they don't turn out completely broken.)

PSA: Free Speech doesn't mean everyone has to give you a platform. Moderating content isn't . The current discussion around and gab has nothing to do with free speech at all.

If you want to distribute an app that no one else wants to host make your own repo.
If you have an opinion that isn't welcome anywhere else make your own blog.

I still got a voucher code for droidcon Berlin, which is 1st - 3rd July, i.e. next week.

If anyone from the /FOSS Android world wants it, feel free to send me a message.

Having been involved in the project in the last 3 years I've used a lot during this time.

Not only do I find it more intuitive to use by now (and github is slowly copying features that gitlab introduced years ago), it also really makes a difference that the development of gitlab itself is open.

Got an bug/feature request? Jump into the issue tracker and help shape the discussion about it. Or someone might even jump in and provide an implementation for it.

Here's the issue about it: github.com/mattermost/mattermo

So while they in the end allowed to publish the app to with the necessary changes the process to get there was somewhat frustrating.

Now watching a talk about open source approach.

Now we had a bit of contact with the mattermost project for publishing their android client on . It didn't go too well, unfortunately.

Now if anyone is in that room and wants to see mattermost on fdroid that would probably a be a good opportunity to voice that request.

I wish everyone going to a great time! I can't be there this year, unfortunately.

If you want to talk about you should be able to find @Coffee somewhere 🙂.

store got a "non-update" today on which is actually installable on devices.
