Somebody built a thing for the @card10badge to count Corona Warn App users in the vicinity
Original post on Twitter:
@Bubu Wait. That seems to be outdated. Maybe this one: https://android.googlesource.com/platform/tools/base/+/studio-master-dev/sdklib/src/main/java/com/android/sdklib
I've written a (long-ish) proposal to make #FDroid's latest view useful again: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/-/issues/2024
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.
@curlybryce advertising is not good. It is brain hacking. No one deserves to be manipulated into spending money feeding the capitalist machine.
Our member project, Git, will add a feature for users to choose the initial branch name via git init. More in the announcement:
@larma Microg hat nicht zufällig eine implementierung für 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location' (also die client Seite), irgendwo rumliegen, oder?
We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in #Liberapay so that it could replace #Bountysource, which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive https://freedomsponsors.org/
The POP3 support in @k9mail is bad 😢 I'm putting on some band-aids now. But I'm pretty sure we'll remove support for it in the future.
If you're using a POP3 account with K-9 Mail, now is a good time to switch to IMAP or to start looking for a different email app.
It is proven!
Android apps can be built using only standard packages from Debian Buster!
"This project helps to document the Android tools in Debian by providing an example build, and can serve as a base template for new projects for those who would like to develop Android apps using only truly Free and Open Source software."
It seems that Google wants to make using app bundles a requirement for new apps on Google Play in 2021: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=320&v=cMr-b660Esw
This would mean developers have to upload their signing keys to google play even though there's no technical benefit in doing that. You can achieve the same efficient download sizes by using bundletool locally and uploading all generated apks. But it seems google will stop allowing that and just wants your signing keys.

#bountysource changed their ToS such that bounties that have been posted more than 2 years ago will be seized by them (probably to fund the blockchain company that bought bountysource a while back). The change will become active July 1. If you have any bounties on bountysource posted before June 30, 2018 you can ask to redeploy your bounty on a new issue once.
@microg will no longer advertise the use of bountysource for issue bounties. Please refrain from posting new bounties there.
Also die Idee, wie man das testen könnte:
Man nehme das apk aus dem Playstore. Entferne die Google secuirty info (aka "Frosting", wie das wohl im Code intern heißt; https://github.com/avast/apkverifier/blob/master/signingblock/frosting.go#L23) und installiere die app wieder.
Ich vermute, die Google play dienste würden das nicht als validen Nutzer der API ansehen. Genauso wie Google Play die app dann nicht updaten würde.
Der "Trick" dahinter ist, dass Google Play beim Upload in den Playstore noch eine weitere Signatur zum apk hinzufügt.
Im Prinzip ist das eine sinnvolle Sache. dadurch kann das apk leztendlich über alle möglichen Kanäle verbreitet werden, solange die ursprüngliche Quelle der Playstore ist.
Das Modell berücksichtigt halt nicht, dass es ein Android Ecosystem neben dem Playstore gibt...
