Hello team @fdroidorg how long does it usually take between a new version of an app being built  and it being published in the repo ? Element.io has fixed a critical bug regarding end to end encryption and the new version seems to have been built already but it isn't in the repo yet. Are there any steps in between that I'm not aware of?
Thanks for the great work you're doing for the FLOSS community.
@IzzyOnDroid thanks for the info. Looks like I didn't read the fine manual properly. I know that all the volunteers are doing the best they can. How do I become a volunteer to help with the build and release process? I guess there must be some level of trust involved so that not every random stranger can sign their malware with official F-Droid keys.
@technicallypossible Glad you ask! I'd suggest looking at the RFP and fdroiddata repositories at GitLab , start with small contributions, get familiar with the environment – and you'll "grow in".
For background, some of my articles might help: https://android.izzysoft.de/articles/tagged/fdroid?lang=en (especially the 2 "for developers" and "reviewers"). To dig deeper, see my 2 vids at https://libre.video/video-channels/foss
