I’ve asked today on mastodon but let’s make this a forum thread to gather ideas.
The question is about what to write to an organization if you want to convince them to 1) open source their app and 2) submit them to f-droid.
In this case this was about an app for easier configuration of eduroam wifi for one university: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.fu.zedat.EduroamConfig&hl=en_US
In my opinion there should be absolutely no reason to not open source this app but the question is how to make the university see that.
When I have some more time I’ll likely draft some things here, but open to hearing other people’s ideas as well.
We can also use this thread to list some more easy or not so easy candidates of apps where we could try to convince people to open source it.
