I wish I was kidding.
@ConnyDuck two different departments that don't talk to each other each developed half of that sentence
@MagicLike about 40%. Thats a lot and also Google Play has crash reporting that I don't get anywhere else, without it app quality would drop significantly.
@ConnyDuck Maybe - for the other 60 % you could use an FOSS reporting tool to get also some reports from them
@benni Google Chrome hat sogar ziemlich lange Terms. Und eigentlich hab ich ihnen das schon im ersten Appeal erklärt, glaub einen zweiten krieg ich nicht.
Nach meinem Eindruck hat #heise online schon oft in passendem Kontext darüber berichtet, wenn Google mal wieder App-Entwicklern aus fadenscheinigen Gründen das Leben schwer gemacht hat. Und ein bisschen Öffentlichkeit könnte ja vielleicht helfen, Googles Gesprächsbereitschaft zu befördern. Gibt es jemand von der Redaktion hier im Fediverse?
Dir hier genannten Beispiele für Nutzungsbedingungen wären für mich übrigens überhaupt kein Problem.
@ConnyDuck if a stupid click-through gets google off your back, then a stupid click-through we shall click.
@ConnyDuck Does manually sideloading an updated .apk from e.g. GitHub on top of an existing Google Play install work and keep the crash reporting? I know it's *very* much not-ideal but I wouldn't mind if it came down to that personally, at least for now if you have something you want to release.
@ConnyDuck new Tusky terms of Service: you have to agree to say "fuck google!" aloud three times before launching the app the first time after any update. [does not apply to users who install thru f-droid]
@ConnyDuck even as an fdroid user, a ToU click through would not bother me. Assuming it is simple and short terms.
@ConnyDuck Do it. Add a basic thing on first launch.
"Third-party servers you use may impose their own terms of service. Please familiarise yourself with these before registering or adding new accounts."
If you want more:
"Use of this program to view and generate content may be restricted by local laws, please ensure you are aware of and agree to these before continuing."
Skip it in the fdroid builds, obvs.
@ConnyDuck put ToS only in GooglePay version
Content of ToS: “don’t be evil. More details at [link to this thread].”
Add opt-in crash reporting to start page in f-droid version.
@bastelwombat Either that, or they just don't understand how Tusky works, I'm not sure which one is the case.
@ConnyDuck Will Google accept a user policy like:
“You agree to not be a prick, nor act in a manner indistinguishable from one.”
I believe that Tusky had issue with it not wanting to be used by certain instances.
While I understand the sentiment, I think that this is a mistake, and depending on how/what, may make the software non-FLOSS.
@ConnyDuck I think some other Fediverse apps ran into similar problems this year, but since this is the Fediverse, I can't find any of the relevant posts... Maybe ask Gargron?
Really sorry to hear you're going through this :(
Please let the rest of us know if we can help.
@ConnyDuck And then somehow /you're/ the jerk if you write "Why do you THINK?!?" in the response field.
