Proposal: Unified Push for Index Synchronization

F-Droid repositories can utilize UnifiedPush for notifying F-Droid clients about index modifications.

When an update occurs in the F-Droid repository, a UnifiedPush notification will be dispatched by the server to inform clients.
Upon receiving this notification, F-Droid clients can initiate synchronization of their index with the repository.

This approach reduces battery consumption, eliminates the requirement for frequent syncing, and ensures faster updates for clients.

I think there was a thread just a few days or weeks ago on how push notifications are a privacy leak.

I thought that F-Droid update doesn’t need to be pushed as an IM message. Given that F-Droid update is always few days later than upstream it doesn’t matter to get the update few hours later.
