Today I installed the #Manyverse app from #FDroid - it is a social network based on #SecureScuttleButt or rather a mobile frontend for the Secure Scuttlebutt protocol. Many concepts are difficult to grasp, as it's very different from the Fediverse - you don't need a server in the first place. It seems rudimentary but very promising since it can work off the grid, via Bluetooth or local network. There are no URLs for users neither for messages. Reminds of #Briar in many ways.

I have to say that I am seriously impressed with the F-Droid Repomaker utility. It's well-designed and easy to use.

@Matter The news site is currently at alpha stage and things will improve in future. I've openend an issue at its bug tracker: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroid-news/

In the meantime, you can use the main website's feed which passes almost fine: validator.w3.org/feed/check.cg

From Zom's build metadata file (gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/b): the latest version requires proprietary dependencies which isn't allowed in F-Droid. Additionally, the goal is to include the original .apk signed by Zom's developers, but so far we weren't able to reproduce their .apk.

Help on bringing Zom into F-Droid is highly appreciated!

@resist__berlin @3rik @torproject the place to report both those issues would be support@guardianproject.info or their matrix room :matrix.org

Für alle, die sich wundern: Mein Server ist seit gestern Abend vom Netz. Ein Update hat "Nebenwirkungen" gehabt, die etwas tricky zu lösen sind. Noch kein ETA in Sicht. Mit viel Glück sind mein F-Droid Repo und meine Android App Listen später am Abend wieder verfügbar – ggf. aber auch erst im Laufe des WEs…

Sorry, my server is currently unreachable. A system update had unexpected side-effects which are tricky to solve. With luck it will be back later this evening – but it might also take over the weekend.

The latest version of G-Droid has error reporting when the app crashes. I already fixed 2 errors, that users had sent in. Please continue sending them through!

The error reporting happens explicitly via email, so you can review the data before sending it. So nothing is being send, without the user confirming it twice. The feature can be deactivated in the settings if desired.

The reporting mechanism has mostly been copied from the F-Droid client source code ✋😃

Writing about #FDroid on the road couldn't be much better than with #Markor and #Syncthing which generate a lovely preview and sync my drafts #p2p across all my devices. Thanks so much to their developers!
