F-Droid will soon have stricter requirements for apps showing up in the "Latest" tab in the F-Droid app:

news.f-droid.org/posts/2019-03

If you are an app developer consider adding good descriptions, screenshots and a "Whats's New" section for your app.

If you notice that your favourite app doesn't fulfill all these requirements consider notifying the app's developers or just help them with a merge request adding the missing info to the source repo.

OK friends of free and open/libre Android apps: My repo now also shows screenshots in the web browser, if there are any (and you use the web frontend). Should affect about any 2nd app. Enjoy!

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

@fdroidorg now packages Trime, an IME (input method engine) used to type Chinese.

In spite of being a pretty nifty tool, it does not work out of the box yet. I opened a topic on F-Droid forum to provide basic guidance and share my experience. Do not hesitate to share yours too: forum.f-droid.org/t/typing-chi
