We have a new fdroid checkupdates job running in gitlab CI. This means the output and failures of this part of the F-Droid build cycle are now easily viewable for contributors.
The job currently runs

The link to the last triggered pipeline can always be found here:
Here is what a completed run looks like:
The job is split into 10 batches of 350 apps, running in parallel. You’ll have to click around a bit to find the output for a specific appid, they go alphabetically from top to bottom.
