I guess it's time to announce the migration.

We very grateful to @ashfurrow@mastodon.technology for hosting the official #FDroid #Mastodon account for 4 and a half years. We'll miss mastodon.technlogy because it was great home on to us. Many thanks.

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaMaybe add something about floss.social so Twitter users won't think we left Mastodon07:23:06

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviahttps://twitter.com/fdroidorg/status/1582328656713895936 Hmm, the crossposter cut the message off weirdly. Gonna have to look into the settings soon >.<22:16:25

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaI can't find a setting :(11:36:29
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylvia...11:37:52
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaI set up the wrong crossposter because nobody revoked its access to the old account :D11:38:03

@uniq:matrix.orguniqhi 👋15:55:18
@michael:downey.netMichael Downey Hey there, I run #floss.social:matrix.org so if y'all have any questions or problems at any point, let me know! 15:59:34

Maybe this could be our next poll:

Do you use the #android VPN feature? (eg. for your #AdBlocker, or route your traffic over #Tor or a #VPN)

[] yes
[] no

I'd be interested in that, not sure if it's a bit out of scope, but it could be a good starter for people recommending their faivorte apps :)

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaOn that note, isn't Google Play cracking down on some stuff like that?16:13:12
@uniq:matrix.orguniqHm, not sure.16:13:54
@uniq:matrix.orguniqI think there was a report or something that apps were not allowed to filter ads anymore16:14:15
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaYeah, can find article, but it's all subjective interpretation: https://www.techzine.eu/news/privacy-compliance/87399/google-play-plans-to-ban-android-vpn-apps-that-block-ads/16:14:56
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaBlokada is screaming bloody murder but given their history I don't trust their judgment on things16:15:21
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaI think even without mentioning Google people will read this and be like "oh nice F-Droid actually supports using VPN for adblocking" so it's good people know that even if Google changes policies they can still go to us16:18:03
@uniq:matrix.orguniqthere were also news about androids vpn implementation leaking data16:18:33

@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviahttps://t.me/AppManagerChannel/255 https://fragment.com/username/fdroid Maybe we need to send a toot out that Telegram is selling an fdroid username and that it's not us and that people need to be careful and remind them our contact info is on our website.07:41:18
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaAlthough it doesn't seem sold yet, maybe we should instead keep stuff quiet in the hope it doesn't get sold and we can grab our own name for free07:42:45
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaI guess nobody on the team cared for F-Droid enough to snatch up the name07:46:44
