@festplattenschnitzel:matrix.org@festplattenschnitzel:matrix.orgThey announced, that they'll force uploading of AAB instead of APK; I hope they don't drop APKs …12:18:22

Forcing AAB or dropping APK? 😟
12:29:02
@proletarius101:matrix.orgproletarius101But probably they won't drop the apk format, since so many apps in China are not delivered by Google Play12:29:09
@proletarius101:matrix.orgproletarius101So are the gov apps12:29:14
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesaiyou can still get a universal apk out of an aab12:29:16
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesai https://developer.android.com/studio/command-line/bundletool "--mode=universal" 12:29:59
@eighthave:matrix.org_hc seems like we should get bundletool into Debian then, to help support the APK ecosystem 12:30:53
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesai I'm pretty sure we talked about this at some point, maybe it was missing a dependency? 12:31:15
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesaihttps://github.com/google/bundletool12:31:31
@eighthave:matrix.org_hcyeah, we talked about it. It could be that kotlin just sucked all our time12:31:34
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesai it needs aapt2 but that's easy 12:31:58

Talking about debian, since sometimes we may want to package our tools into the repo, does debian stable receives new packages?
12:32:21
@eighthave:matrix.org_hcI thought aapt2 was already packaged12:32:24
@freenode_cdesai:matrix.orgcdesaiyeah12:32:28
@eighthave:matrix.org_hcDebian/stable does not get new packages, but new packages can come via backports, PPAs, other repos, direct install, etc.12:33:00
@proletarius101:matrix.orgproletarius101And, regarding migrating to debian buster, https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver/-/issues/754#note_564655146, any updates on the migration process?12:33:17
@proletarius101:matrix.orgproletarius101stretch/backports' packages are old enough, though...12:34:06
@eighthave:matrix.org_hc proletarius101: sorry, I have a backlog on gitlab pings, so I didn't see your message. If you're waiting for me to do something, like I'm blocking your progress, then please ping me here 12:35:08
@eighthave:matrix.org_hcI'm looking into the VM now12:35:32
@proletarius101:matrix.orgproletarius101thanks12:35:36
@eighthave:matrix.org_hcI should be able to sort it out today12:35:41
