Description

The page is at: https://f-droid.org/wiki/page/Antifeature:Ads

It tells that "No such apps are currently known to exist.", but I verified (with the "Hungarian Rings for Android" application) that it's no longer the case.

Is this only about the ads wiki page being out of date and not listing apps that have this anti-feature?
If so, I don't understand why this should be a bug in Replicant. As I already mentioned in #1629, the wiki will probably be obsolete soon and we should look at definitions in the new doc.

I didn't see ads mentioned in the FSDG guidelines, so I'm not sure how this could be an FSDG issue. My understanding is that apps with this anti-feature display ads using only free software. Is there evidence to the contrary?

It was to point out that f-droid was contradictory with itself.
That should indeed be resolved upstream.
