Update for Kiwix not available in F-droid, Why?

The app Kiwix has released newer versions in play store and apk-Pure (https://apkpure.com/kiwix-wikipedia-offline/org.kiwix.kiwixmobile). But it’s not possible to see and update to the newest version in the F-Droid client. Why? Will anyone fix this? The newest version off “Kiwix Offline Wikipedia” is “2.5.1”, released in Google Play Store: June 28, 2019.

Autoupdate can’t be used, versioncode/name is generated.

Needs a manual edit on each new version.

How do I update it manual? I bet there might be other who want to know this. Maybe you should ad an instruction in the info for the Kiwix app?

You may contact the dev: contact+android@kiwix.org?subject=Kiwix on F-Droid
Or look him up on Wiki and leave him a chat there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User%3AKelson
Or look up his wiki and use any contact methods there:
Although it seems the Dev is working on fixing stuffs soon: so ask him to update on F-Droid.

If I mail the dev: Is the dev’s e-mail contact+android@kiwix.org or is it just contactandroid@kiwix.org without +??

I’m already pushing the metadata update, chill out…don’t email no one :))
