For people who were affected by that, could you try updating the affected apps?
At least fairemail got an update: f-droid.org/repo/eu.faircode.e

I've been thinking about doing a recurring livestream of me working through some of backlock of F-Droid app inclusions.

Would anyone be interested in watching this?

Apps targeting Android SDK 30 published by F-Droid cannot yet be installed on Android 11. This affects at least FairEmail, Netguard, OpenVPN and a few others.

You might want to hold up upgrading your device to Android 11 for a few weeks if you rely on any of these apps.

As a developer, you might want to hold up upgrading targetSDK to 30 for a bit.

The issue is tracked here, including a workaround for getting your data back from FairEmail in case you already fell into this trap.

Thanks to @utf8equalsX these have now been worked into the main documentation page:

staging.f-droid.org/en/docs/Al

This is a giant improvement over the previous state of that page! 🎉

Feel free to ask us if there are any more questions!

#OsmAnd ist #OpenSource. Das ist für mich entscheidend. Es kann inklusive allen Erweiterungen und Live Abo kostenlos in #Fdroid heruntergeladen werden.

Google removed @k9mail from the Play Store without prior notice because they objected to the following text in the app description (that has been the same for more than a year):

(People sometimes call K-9: K9, K9 Mail, K-9 Email, K9 Email, K9 E-Mail, k9mail or k9email.)

@charly Quoting form f-droid.org/donate

> Liberapay has lower fees but Open Collective allows more flexibility and transparency on how the funds are used. Both platforms allow for recurrent donations which are highly desirable for making F-Droid sustainable.

Did you know that @IzzyOnDroid wrote two very helpful documents about including app metadata (screenshots, localized descriptions, etc.) in upstream app repositories?

gitlab.com/snippets/1895688 and gitlab.com/snippets/1901490

If your favourite app is missing i.e. screenshots, you can maybe contribute them to the repository.

@sexybiggetje F-Droid is indeed not a professional product but is and always has been an understaffed and underfunded volunteer project. So yes, there is indeed much room for improvement.

@fedilab
Imagine a day, where the first app everyone installs is f-droid and playstore is the new IE.

There's a lot of discussion in this issue: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-

Particularily the first comment describes the situation (at that time): gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-

If you feel that this needs to be revisited, please open a new issue in fdroiddata.

If Google does not want to listen to my explanations, I will not change the app for them.
The way they are acting is unfair and don't give any trust concerning next publications.
I prefer to spend my time to help people to switch on #FDroid for getting the app.
