Is gnu-taler/fdroid-repo-nightly working for others? I’m having no luck with it.

It works for me. Just open the link in F-Droid client.

It “adds” to f-droid OK, but always gives “failed to download index…” when trying to update. The problem is likely gitlab refusing connection over Tor/orbot.

Then you can use a proxy behind Tor.
