Updated an app from fdroid and noticed an option to send to Google for checking! The pop-up disappeared quickly. Anyone else have this?


If Macmillan has learned anything from its controversial new e-book embargo, we hope it is this:

Do NOT piss off the librarians.

We did it! We came together as a community and met our fundraising goal to defend software freedom from patent litigation.

It has not been a whole MONTH since the lawsuit against #gnomefoundation became known. Not even one site other than #techrights pointing out the #intellectualventures and #microsoft connection. We need #groklaw back. http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/128508

Calling out to the Mastodon community again: famous @fdroidorg Repomaker is looking for a new maintainer (and contributors). Should be familiar with F-Droid, Python, Django.

Still 11k active installations of the really outdated free version on Google Play.
I read some misleading messages. Google removed the free version due to donation links. Remove means you can't even find it in your library though you downloaded it. That has nothing to do with a personal choice ;)
