as some of you know: the alternative client G-Droid has added a feature to leave comments for F-Droid apps. They are in the fediverse, you can read them here: https://mastodon.technology/tags/fdroid_app_comments or by using the G-Droid app.
As it could have been expected, users tend to leave bug-reports and feature requests there. They do that in the Google play store too, it seems to be unavoidable.
Does anyone have a good strategy to make app developers aware of these comments? I’m sure most of them don’t use G-Droid or Mastodon to check the latest comments on their own app.
All app-developers have agreed that their app goes into the F-Droid repo and also left an email address. Would it be reasonable to send a spam email to all of them saying something like:
Hey your app in in the F-Droid repo. So it is also visible in alternative clients like G-Droid, MDroid etc. Some clients provide a feedback mechanism for apps. As you might not know, people are actively leaving feedback, bugreports, feature requests and general thanks-yous there for you. You have made the app with the packagename org.fdroid.fdroid , so you can read you app’s comments here: https://mastodon.technology/tags/org_fdroid_fdroid .
(this is an example how the developer of the F-Droid app could be informed)
