They end up here from somewhere, so there must be a "back story" of why they came.
E.g. from an search engine or a link shared by others

_hc: Downloading apps from a flash-drive repo seems to be broken at the moment. Can reproduce on latest stable, so not a bug in my code. The IntentFilter in InstallManagerService doesn't seem to match the intent from the Downloader.
From the docs:

a content URI will never match because they always have a MIME type that is supplied by their content provider.

Won't investigate further now, but thought I'll let you know.

AFAIR, some 1.14 alphas have been tested with USB OTG. It isn't always so easy unfortunately, the Storage Access Framework makes it really hard to make a good UX

@eighthave:matrix.org_hchow did you set up the flash drive repo?10:22:05
@eighthave:matrix.org_hccheck out the jump drive tutorial https://secondwind.guardianproject.info/en/learn-more/10:24:34

One thought would be.... INSTALL_REFERRER (two R or two F? Damn)
Seems to be Google Play dependent https://developer.android.com/google/play/installreferrer/library

how did you set up the flash drive repo?
I just copied my own repo that is online to a flashdrive and things worked fine except downloading the APK. Did you try that part as well? Here, it looked, like the intent didn't get recevied due to the content Uri

Someone who speaks French should probably explain that making so much forum threads looks spammy and to please stop

Yes that means it's not a feasible solution. We should find out what's the best we can do

@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Not include their libs, yes, proletarius101 but cope with fdroidclient being fed some of that data 12:23:35
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Sylvia: you think language is the issue? There's not that much info in French(?) either. We get a lot of non-english posts...but they can articulate at least :) 12:24:13
@grote:matrix.orggroteI'd just reply with a deepl translation to french12:35:31
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Language is not an issue... I've responded already to all posts, afaik 12:38:11
@_oftc_jochensp:matrix.orgjochenspLicaon_Kter[xmpp]: someone in #fdroid is asking for the reason of https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/merge_requests/644012:54:48
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] 'Cause it doesn't work iirc 12:58:22

_hc: Set this up with 1.4-alpha3 on an Android 11 phone and same result: The repo gets added fine and images show, but when trying to actually install an app, the download hangs at "Waiting to start download..."/

@_oftc_jochensp:matrix.orgjochenspLicaon_Kter[xmpp]: could you answer in #fdroid?13:00:34

what's the OS and version you're using? I'll take a look. Installing definitely worked when I tested.
15:57:02
@grote:matrix.orggroteI tried Android 11 and 12 with latest stable and 1.4-alpha316:15:06
@grote:matrix.orggroteLooking at those IntentFilter docs, it looks like it can't work with content:// URLs, but maybe that behavior has changed between Android versions.16:15:40
