Paraphrasing myself from gitlab:
I’m interested in F-Droid development and would like to chip in where I can, but don’t want to subscribe to notifications for the whole fdroidclient repo for various reasons. It was suggested that I create a thread here. Like the maintenance thread, people can watch this to receive notifications when others comment with links to design issues looking for feedback.
edit: I have been informed that you can subscribe to labels on gitlab now, which does exactly what I want, no need for this thread.
