@rdfg77:kde.orglinsuiI didn't get the point that one can setup a repo because the code is free. Well, even if the code is not free, one can setup a repo. And even if the code is free, third-party repo may be not supported.06:41:10
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]You can setup repos without fdroidserver? (Or repomaker or etc from fdroid)06:42:14
@rdfg77:kde.orglinsuiIt doesn't need to be FOSS though.06:44:06
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Yes, but _"...it free"_ 06:48:33

All active languages should have active reviewers now. Feel free to ping me if anyone want to become a reviewer.

We make it clear
I'm confused mainly because I don't know what this sentence what to tell me. Why one can setup a repo? Or why third-party repos are supported? Or the third-party repo is also FOSS? It's not clear to me.

If you are one of the most active tranlators of your language, then you should have been set as a reviewer. And you are the Team administrator so you can add other tranlators as reviewer of yout language.

@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]This is not the place to clear that up.06:57:05
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]Wanna know more? Read the rest of thu docs :shrug:06:57:05
@gunchleoc:glasgow.socialGunChleoc (co-shaoghal.net)Here's an example of a third-party repo: https://apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/ If they use the F-Droid code to host it, it's automatically FOSS because of the AGPL license06:57:37
@gunchleoc:glasgow.socialGunChleoc (co-shaoghal.net)

Possible reasons to want to set up a repo:

  1. Distribute the hosting load
  2. Have a different list of curated apps with different inclusion criteria, like Izzy
  3. Company-controlled devices to restrict which apps can be installed, and/or provide company-internal software

@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]What? The hosting server is foss, yes07:03:41
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]The content can be proprietary apps. No relation between the two.07:03:41
@gunchleoc:glasgow.socialGunChleoc (co-shaoghal.net)That's true07:09:24
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] linsui: you need to talk about this, to make it clear that everything is free, that one can make their own repo, client, basically their own ~catalogue~store. 07:10:56
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Because, the duopoly marketing throws money to beat the drums about _"their one true store"_ continously. Normies can't even *imagine* something like F-Droid. 07:12:06

Me?
07:12:13
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp] Not "you", more like "we" more like "fdroid" 07:12:34
@rdfg77:kde.orglinsuiYes, right, we all need to promot FOSS. But the sentence is not clear to me.07:13:54
@_oftc_Licaon_Kter[xmpp]:matrix.orgLicaon_Kter[xmpp]¯\_(ツ)_/¯07:18:53
@paulali:matrix.orgpaulali Hi linsui ,please grant skoech and I reviewer privileges for Swahili? Thanks. 07:33:18
@rdfg77:kde.orglinsuiskoech is already the Team administrator. You can ask them to add you.07:34:26
@rdfg77:kde.orglinsuiIt seems another Team administrator smmayero is not active anymore?07:37:43
@paulali:matrix.orgpaulaliThanks Linsui, I think smmayero still is active. I'll reach out to them to find out. 07:48:20
@rdfg77:kde.orglinsui

who ceases to be a student, never was a student at all

What does this mean?
