Any reason why pwsafe (passwordsafe) is not available on f-droid?

I am looking for this app:

https://pwsafe.org/
Or rather the port to android
https://sourceforge.net/p/passwdsafe/wiki/Home/

The wikipedia page for pwsafe provides a link for the f-droid package, but the page doesn’t seem to exist (anymore?)


https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.jefftharris.passwdsafe/

As far as I can tell, the android version is open source.
Is there a specific reason why it’s not available on f-droid?

Thank you

nico

It has libs as JARs and not build from source:
https://sourceforge.net/p/passwdsafe/code/ci/default/tree/passwdsafe/libs/

https://sourceforge.net/p/passwdsafe/code/ci/default/tree/lib-owncloud/libs/

Also non-free Google libs:
https://sourceforge.net/p/passwdsafe/code/ci/default/tree/sync/build.gradle

Why not try the free fork instead: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/net.tjado.passwdsafe/

Thanks for your reply.
I didn’t realise there were non-free components in the software.

I looked at the app you pointed to, the description makes it sound like it’s very different, but it can indeed open the pwsafe files. I will try using it and see if it works for me.

Thanks again!
