This may be a bit off-topic. I am new to Android, F-Droid and GitLab (I feel a bit uncomfortable at GitLab- I find GitHub more intuitive and easy to use but this is subjective). I work almost exclusively on desktop (I do a lot of beta testing and bug reporting on Windows) and I do not think that I will be able to contribute that much on Android. My humble contribution might be just posting notifications about updates when I notice that some programs on F-Droid lag behind the latest versions. I plan to migrate from Android to LineageOS in the future but currently I don’t have time to do the necessary research (I don’t even know whether F-Droid client would work under LineageOS). I don’t use many apps on Android but I have found real gems on F-Droid (for example DroidFish). Thank you for your explanations and advices.
Thank you for your kindness. I know that fighting spam is a hard task and I also know that as a side effect innocent, well-intentioned users got punished. I am a causal visitor here and I am aware that I have to observe the rules. I was frustrated because I spent some time to produce a relevant first post and it was automatically rejected. On other forums I have seen different precautions against spam, for example the first post by a new user is not published before it is manually reviewed and accepted by a moderator, I find this approach better. There is one more thing that I do not like about this forum:
This topic will close 2 months after the last reply.
For me this is Reddit-like. On other forums I have replied to 10 years old threads where the last post was 5 years old. In my opinion a thread might be old yet relevant.
I have one last question- are topics not fully related to F-Droid accepted here (for example questions about open source apps not included in F-Droid)?
