Good question, lets have a look.

The @fdroidorg repo on our main mirror currently has ~110GB and the archive has ~384GB in size. So all in all it's manageable.

At this point we'd like to thank fau.de cyberbits.eu tetaneutral.net lysator.liu.se and rcac.purdue.edu who kindly mirror our repo. Those mirrors help a great deal reducing traffic cost.

At this point most of the day to day work necessary to keep up and running is contributed by volunteers.

If you like our project you can help too! Here's how to get started contributing: f-droid.org/contribute
If you've got enough on your plate already we also accept donations: f-droid.org/donate

Hey ! Like so many other projects, keeping up and running is a community effort. Have you ever contributed to any Project?

Not a general problem it seems. But without details hard to say what it could be. Maybe check with our forum?

@maltimore
Happens 😳 Should you already have posted on the forum, please mention that there as well. Might well be you're not the only one 😜
@sheogorath

@sheogorath
Best ask this in our forum (if it hasn't been asked for yet). Missing update checks we've heard of for some devices, and there's an issue open already. The "pending" part at least I have not heard of yet, but others might and might even have a solution for.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

#Debian created an ecosystem where the software available there is reviewed and trusted, so the system can prioritize flexibility over security. In #Google Play, there are many apps we feel forced to use, despite knowing they are unethical or are tracking us. Google responds by locking down #Android to reduce data leaks, which also reduces the system's flexibility. #FreeSoftware puts the user in control so we can build user-friendly systems without being forced into bad decisions.

Siteul F-Droid este acum disponibil și în limba română, mulțumită eforturilor celor câțiva contributori voluntari. Paginile principale sunt complete, dar Documentația și descrierile aplicațiilor sunt încă în lucru. Persoanele interesate să dea o mână de ajutor pentru completarea lor sau pentru îmbunătățirea traducerilor existente sunt încurajate să contribuie prin intermediul portalului Weblate F-Droid (hosted.weblate.org/languages/r).

Torsten Grote explored Free Software alternatives for smartphones as early as 2012. ⭐

In our interview we look back at the start of Free Your Android campaign.

Of course, we asked @grote@status.grobox.de which options are available for liberating our phones today.

The interview was conducted in the context of celebrating 20 Years of the FSFE 🙂 #FSFE20
