Hi all. #TWIF #29 is up, in which we're looking for #MirrorTesters and talk about our new #Matrix server.


We also have some news about #Fairphone as a Service, seek help with our new #AuditingProxy, and 12 new and 79 updated apps in our repo. Go read!


What's your take on becoming FOSS-yet-paid?
The dev states he wants to continue distributing them on F-Droid, but there's no indicating of when.


@porkhaus @fdroidorg I emailed the dev who responded with "the Pro versions will be available on f-droid too soon, for free"

F-Droid is really just a group of volunteers, and as such doesn't have a single view on the issue. There are currently some discussions running on our forum:

forum.f-droid.org/t/4553 and

All I can say is that so long as an app is fully FOSS (that is, no binary code downloads for extra functionality, paid or not), then it's allowed in the repository.

Oh! Too bad about Simple going commercial. I was using their calendar app and tasks app until I read that. Now I'm back to Etar and OpenTasks.

#FOSS #Etar #OpenTasks

Well, I now know a bit more about this; the apps remain libre and open source, and I have no issue with that. I actually like the idea of paying a few cents per app, so I did that as well.

Regarding F-Droid, the latest version remains freely available from there, so I must say that I am a bit confused about what you're saying 😀
