Liberapay for Fdroid-Data work



Following some discussion in IRC from yesterday I set up a team for Fdroid data work.

Here is how teams work:

I think everyone can just say what share we wants to take from the total donations/week.

The description is what I just came up with, suggestions welcome :slightly_smiling_face: Also adding an icon is a bit annoying to do, because you have to make a account. And I’m not on the team@f-droid email, so I can;t use this…

@relan @mimi89999 @Manizuca if you create an account on liberapay I can invite you to the team.

Anyone I forgot?



So after about 1,5 weeks and absolutely zero promotion we are already receiving 1,28 € per week :slight_smile:

I now added the donation badge to the fdroid data repo and will set up a team logo shortly.

Added to the fdroid website would probably also be helpful.

Edit: Right now only @mimi89999 and I are on the liberapay team. More are certainly welcome.


This is great! Thanks for setting it up! If it increases by 1€ a week, then that will start looking like real money. Would it also make sense to set up a Patreon?


Patreon seems to have a slightly different focus (rewards system vs pure donations). It also is a commercial platform instead of a FOSS project. If someone of the team wants to set this up great, but I probably won’t do it.


We are at (almost) 15 € per week donations. Not too bad! :slight_smile: @relan you are still missing there.


We are the number 3 team on liberapay now! :smile:


I wrote a small post about f-droid and liberapay here:


I’ve just enabled US$ donations for the liberapay team as there were some requests. Still a bit unsure how this will work out in practice. I think if you don’t also enable $ in your personal profile you’ll never receive any. Not sure what happens in all other cases. We’ll figure it out when we get any leftover $ donations I guess.

Maybe we also can attract some contributors form the US that can claim these, who knows.
