Today I installed the #Manyverse app from #FDroid - it is a social network based on #SecureScuttleButt or rather a mobile frontend for the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol. Many concepts are difficult to grasp, as it's very different from the Fediverse - you don't need a server in the first place. It seems rudimentary but very promising since it can work off the grid, via Bluetooth or local network. There are no URLs for users neither for messages. Reminds of #Briar in many ways.
Another reason to in the very least have @fdroidorg installed on your phone. https://twitter.com/albertvaka/status/1107924633750253568

Für alle, die sich wundern: Mein Server ist seit gestern Abend vom Netz. Ein Update hat "Nebenwirkungen" gehabt, die etwas tricky zu lösen sind. Noch kein ETA in Sicht. Mit viel Glück sind mein F-Droid Repo und meine Android App Listen später am Abend wieder verfügbar – ggf. aber auch erst im Laufe des WEs…
Sorry, my server is currently unreachable. A system update had unexpected side-effects which are tricky to solve. With luck it will be back later this evening – but it might also take over the weekend.
The latest version of G-Droid has error reporting when the app crashes. I already fixed 2 errors, that users had sent in. Please continue sending them through!
The error reporting happens explicitly via email, so you can review the data before sending it. So nothing is being send, without the user confirming it twice. The feature can be deactivated in the settings if desired.
The reporting mechanism has mostly been copied from the F-Droid client source code ✋😃

Für diejenigen, die es verpasst haben – am Sonntag ging Teil 3 meiner @fdroidorg Serie auf Deutsch online: "Eigenes F-Droid Repository mit Repomaker erstellen und verwalten." Viel Spaß beim Lesen – und umsetzen 😃
Just bought another testing device from ebay. The Nokia 6.1 which will is currently on Android P and will get an update to Android Q later this year.
Fully paid for by the paypal balance gained from F-Droid liberapay donations. Big thanks to all who donated something there! 😍
