Submit to FSF (fdroid) app store


#1

It seems like Jitsi might be what we’ve been waiting for in terms of an open source alternative to hangouts and other services, but I don’t have the playstore on my open source phone.

AFAIK I’m not the only person with an Android phone without any google apps, in this case LineageOS (android 7.1) so is there any reason why the Android app can’t be released through an open source app store? There are at least a few other apps released via both fdroid and the Play store, and Jitsi could also fit under the Guardian Project if it meets their reqs:

I would love to try the mobile version but if I can’t get it then I can’t try it :frowning:

In case any Jitsi devs are interested in this idea of submitting to an open source app store…
