Description

It would be useful to get RepWiFi added to F-Droid repos. This would allow updating RepWiFi independently of the Replicant system image, and would also allow users of non-Replicant Android distros to use RepWiFi (assuming that there are other distros that support the relevant kernel module).

Thanks for opening this feature request.
I should've done that long ago.

It would indeed be useful.
And I already tried to do that once..
Unfortunately I took me some time to deal with the f-droid metadata files being out of sync..
So I gave up.

But that's a totally feasible thing for anyone, as it doesn't need any technical skill.
All you need to do is follow the guidelines on the f-droid site.
It may take some time, to understand how repository metadata files are managed, but it's nothing inherently hard for a regular user.

Or, it can be done the easier way, by posting an inclusion request on the f-droid tracker

Whatever way you choose, you should provide this address as the app's official source code repository:
https://git.replicant.us/contrib/Fil/RepWifiApp/

Any way, I currently lack the time to follow this procedure.
But I do strongly encourage that someone does this, as it would bring major benefits.

I'll be happy to give all the support I can.

Ok..
I got sick and tired of trying to follow the guidelines to add RepWifi to F-droid..

Seriously people... why the f... should it be so hard and frustrating?!?!?
Sometimes I get the horrible feeling that some folks aren't willing to simplify things, so that they can stay on top of others..

Whatever..

I'm not going to waste my time on it anymore.
I'm sorry for everyone, but it seems that if you want it to be added, you will need to file a request on f-droid's issue tracker.

That's oppressing and frustrating.
I mean, really...

Hi Fil,

If you don't mind I can make an RFP: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/rfp for RepWifi on Fdroid, I'm basically done writing up the submission I just need to confirm you actually want this. Are you on #replicant on freenode?

Yes, please, go on!
Of course I want it to be added to F-Droid ;)
That would allow for an easier way of updating it.

Thank you for taking the time to do this!

Great! No problem, I also want to see RepWifi in F-Droid!
I've submitted the issue here: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/rfp/issues/392

And of course; please correct me if I got something wrong in the submission!

Yay! No problem, thank @relan https://gitlab.com/relan for fixing it :)

Though I see 'No available versions with compatible signature' on my Samsung Galaxy N2..
