#davdroid is now called #DAVx5, read more about this here: https://www.davx5.com/faq/general/what-does-davx5-stand-for
You'll find it under the new name in #FDroid with the next update.
Hi there, so will we receive the new app as an update or do we have to uninstall davdroid in order to get DAVx5?
@meldrian It will be a seamless update.
@fdroidorg this is the worst name change ever 😂. Copyright needs reform 🤔
@fdroidorg Shouldn't the name "F-Droid" also be affected?
@fdroidorg Do you know why they think that it might be a trademark violation? Did Google contact them about this?
This is not about copyright, it's about trademarks.
@uniq It cannot be a trademark violation, too. Also Google should be glad, that there is a good dav imementation, as they did not get it to integrate dav in their os. And how many apps out there have droid in their name? But did something happen about the name, or is it an act of caution?
I guess that's the trademark in question: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droid_(Star_Wars)#Trademark
@fdroidorg Do the have an account I can follow from here?
Love the 5 core values represented by the x⁵ though:
