RHVoice updating

Is old version of RHVoice will be updated?
There’s a new release came out almost month ago.

Although the build metadate shows that auto updates are not on

AutoUpdateMode: None
UpdateCheckMode: None
CurrentVersion: 1.2.4
CurrentVersionCode: 10204

We can’t do automatic updates for that app because they generate the version number on build time which is not supported.

To update automatically we need a simpler build.gradle, something like this instead:


android {
    [...]

    defaultConfig {
        [...]
        versionCode 97
        versionName "2.13.0"
    }

Alternatively, adding a .txt file or something to each release like Wire does is possible.

I have manually updated now: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/merge_requests/10334. I also subscribed to the GitHub repository’s releases so if it doesn’t get lost in all the other emails I will make sure to keep updating it.
