I published an application on f-droid a few weeks ago. I did 3 updates “by hand”, I mean I had to create a branch on gitlab, fork the f-droid data project, upload a new metadata, create the tag on GitHub.com (where the app repository is), and it works.
But I did not understand how can I do a fully automated update on f-droid side ? It seems, each time I created a Tag/Release on GitHub, f-droid do not see it and the app is not updated.
Do i have to modify the metadata.yml by hand and include the corresponding tag, each time I release a new verson ? I though the
AutoUpdateMode mode was made to avoid manual step on f-droid.
The metadata of my app is here : https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/blob/master/metadata/org.jfo.app.makesomenoise.yml
On the YML, there are
Builds sections for 3 versions (with the same build instructions).
There is new version tagged on GitHub (https://github.com/psa-jforestier/makesomenoise/tree/1.2.4), but the f-droid app and site still use the previous version.
