Thanks for the input. We'll have to discus that I think.
> So then why host apps whose devs passively support bigotry by not making their app hostile to them?
Because that is a very different thing.
> so if you're going to hold a standard, why is it on active promotion and not active enablement?
Because we don't believe this can be enforced in any fair way.
See the current debate about fedilab. There's no simple right and wrong in this discussion.
@Shrigglepuss That is exactly what we are doing. We won't host apps promoting hate speech or hateful content on f-droid.org. People who don't agree with those rules should host their own repo.
@jade_qwann can you open an issue in the fdroid data repository?
@roptat should be fixed in next deploy (< 120 min)
@utf8equalsX should be fixed in next deploy (< 120 min)
@roptat Oops, will fix.

Because that is the core of Software Freedom/Liberty: the right for a Person to take a software that expresses a [political] view they disagree with, obtain a copy of that software with equal capability as the distributor, modify that [political] view to be more amenable, and then redistribute it without any additional licensing burdens.
It's never about what specific views or capabilities are in the software itself. Heck, you could fork and purposefully add bugs and it is still no less Freedom respecting.
