We have (rooted) Android devices that run F-Droid w/ privileged extension. The apps are hosted in a private F-Droid repository. Updates occur “eventually” but we would like to improve that.
Question: Would it be possible to trigger the update from outside the F-Droid client? In other words, is there an API/Intent/event we can push to notify F-Droid client (or the privileged extension) to expedite the update of an app? From the security point the app has to be from one of the pre-added repositories and already installed - we are talking updating, not new installs. We are merely trying to come up with a way to push the updates asap (near real-time), instead of relying on the periodic checking by the F-Droid client.
