Do you think it would be hard to add GCompris to f-droid?
It is being ported to QtQuick and has instructions to build for android (I didn’t try yet)January 8, 2015 at 8:22 pm #14087
Hi, no idea how hard it is but you have all the support from the GCompris development team.
Join us on IRC or through our mailing list if you need.

I also would love to see GCompris in F-Droid. This thread is the only Occurence of “GCompris” in the Forum. So, I guess nobody put it in the Submission Queue, right?
I’ll see if I can get to it tomorrow.

Do I see it right that the next step is now to follow the instructions in this thread: Adding apps with Git?

Do be clear, we ported GCompris from Gtk+ to Qt in order to make it run on tablets like Android. This new version is available from here :
Let us know if you need help on that. We would love to see GCompris on f-froid.

Thanks for your offer to help!
I have to say that I have no clue about Android development at all. I just followed the instructions mentioned earlier and cloned the fdroid repo already. Now it seems, that I have to install the entire Android development packages as well. I ran out of time and left it for now, but plan to continue working on it after I saw that fdroidserver is now a Debian package in Jessie.
Anyway, in the inclusion howto it says:
probably if you can see a file called AndroidManifest.xml or build.gradle in your sources then there are many possibilities that F-Droid will be able to build it.
I don’t see these filenames in the gcompris repo. I don’t know what these files do, but it seems that they are helpful for the fdroid scripts. Can you add (one of) them to the repo?

Hi, As we use Qt it will be a little be more complex than a typical Android project. We have the manifest as a template for our tool chain here android/AndroidManifest.xml.cmake.
First you must build GCompris on Android from our procedure to see how it goes. Then you will see how to setup our tool chain for f-droid.

OK, I did a little research and found out that F-Droid is not ready for Qt apps yet as nobody was found to do the work. So, it seems that hans’ last post in that thread is the point where we are at.
For the record, there are also threads for
