Fdroid metadata: order of fields

do we need to strictly follow
order of fields given at Build
Metadata Reference.[ 1 ]

  • example: AuthorName must be
    below categories and above license?

[ 1 ] Build Metadata Reference | F-Droid - Free and Open Source Android App Repository


There are lint checks in fdroiddata that enforce a specific order, to make stuff easier to manage and script. If you get the order wrong the GitLab CI checks will tell you what order to use. If you are trying to do this for an own repo instead of the F-Droid one it doesn’t matter.

Follow order given at fdroidserver/metadata.py · master · F-Droid / fdroidserver · GitLab
