We are looking for more maintainers for specific apps in . Here is a list of some that would need some love:

* GNU
*
*
*
*
*

If you know how to build software in general, no particular Android experience is required. This can be picked up as you go :)

All of those already have working recipes available but all of them also have quirks that require manual action when updating.

Please get in contact, if you use one of these and are interested!

@_trojka but hey aren't involved in packaging it in fdroid.

@fdroidorg i don't understand. does every app need a special dev to package it for f-droid? isn't the procedure automated? thanks for your answer!

@_trojka Well, turns out that building multiple thousand of applications from source is not an easy problem. So automation will get us only this far.
