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 #FDroid up and running is contributed by volunteers.

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.

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org which options are available for liberating our phones today.
