I don’t know where to post this, not in the Issues on Gitlab, not in Merge request because the system need a commit… probably here for discussion.
There are 2 ways to publish an application on FDroid:
with a RFP (Request For Packaging): simple but the devs are busy and this can take a long time
with a Merge Request: all the stuff is on the back of the owner of the application but the doc is obscure and more over it takes a lot of time
Now wait several hours for this to finish
The problem is the time and how much it takes to compile the server and make our package?
With Android Studio, a release package takes ~10 minutes.
Is there a way to speed up this build and give it available to everybody?
What will do the build exactly?
It will download all the application sources published on Fdroid and recompile them to create the server? So increasing the build at each new application published?!
Is there a way to do it from Gitlab like “Merge request” functionnality (job)?
Reducing the RFP and Merge Request tickets on Gitlab.
