If you have ever rsynced from mirror.f-droid.org or run an f-droid.org mirror:

we are decommissioning mirror.f-droid.org. Please sync with our very capable primary mirror providers: f-droid.org/docs/Running_a_Mir

Sometimes we get concerned inquiries about apps in targeting old SDK versions. Targeting newer SDK versions does strengthen the sand-boxing, but it also breaks features used by apps. Google puts those kinds of restrictions in because users don’t trust proprietary apps, since most are constantly trying to steal user data. F-Droid reviews all apps from source to prevent that, so we don’t need to break features to gain privacy.
