Hi all. #29 is up, in which we're looking for and talk about our new server.

f-droid.org/en/2018/11/10/twif

We also have some news about as a Service, seek help with our new , and 12 new and 79 updated apps in our repo. Go read!

@fdroidorg congrats for talking about @commownfr (which are present in the fediverse if you want to mention them)

@commownfr
You're welcome! Credit should really go to @rudloff, who sent us the tip!

What's your take on #simplemobiletools becoming FOSS-yet-paid?
The dev states he wants to continue distributing them on F-Droid, but there's no indicating of when.

@porkhaus @fdroidorg I emailed the dev who responded with "the Pro versions will be available on f-droid too soon, for free"

@porkhaus
F-Droid is really just a group of volunteers, and as such doesn't have a single view on the issue. There are currently some discussions running on our forum:

forum.f-droid.org/t/4553 and
forum.f-droid.org/t/4099

All I can say is that so long as an app is fully FOSS (that is, no binary code downloads for extra functionality, paid or not), then it's allowed in the repository.

@porkhaus @fdroidorg
Oh! Too bad about Simple going commercial. I was using their calendar app and tasks app until I read that. Now I'm back to Etar and OpenTasks.

Well, I now know a bit more about this; the apps remain libre and open source, and I have no issue with that. I actually like the idea of paying a few cents per app, so I did that as well.

Regarding F-Droid, the latest version remains freely available from there, so I must say that I am a bit confused about what you're saying 😀
