Is it okay to ask for certain updates we feel are lagging? Or is this frowned upon?
It's always okay to ask, but while from a user perspective its always
easy to tell if an app is not up-to-date -- like "i know the playstore
has version x+1 and fdroid has only x, it must be outdated" -- the
whole stuff is not as simple for us. I outlined a couple of possible
causes in https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/issues/947 and in
many cases there isn't anything to fix on my side. However, sometimes
upstream changed the build structure and I wasnt aware of it, so that
can easily be changed and fixed.
Oh, and its not like we withhold updates from some apps or prioritize
others on purpose. We dont have shortage as in "we can only publish
n apps per day". When signinging/publishing happens, all sucessfully
build apps are getting published. Unless there are bugs.. like in the
Anything regular users can do to help the workflow?
As I said, the issue above gives you an idea where pinging us actually
helps and is highly recommended (e.g. a solvable build issue, an app
without or with a non-working update-check etc.).
