    Great to see progress on this! Since the GNU IceCat project now has an Android signing key, we use their signing key in F-Droid via the reproducible process. I’m happy to support that as much as is needed to get it done.

    @chatch here is my metadata file [0]. I try to not download anything in the build process, so i use just hg/git repos. The main repo used in the metadata is from Mozilla [1] and the srclibs used are my fork of the IceCat repo [2] and a repo for the Locales [3] that also has a script that removes all the binaries (used also for fennec)

    PS: line 33 is not needed now, I used it because I built IceCat 38.6 before it was released so the script changed the version to 38.5

    Hi !

    Very Very great Idea! Is there a chance that you add the Support for the PaleMoon Token Sever (aka Legacy Sync Service) …. Mozilla killed the Token Server for the easy Sync Access… Its only a one liner change, but males old Sync work again 😉

    How is about Multi Language Support?

    #18829

    @teyro all the locales are included. I’m not aware of the change that is necessary for the sync service, can you post it?

    Well thx for fast reply…. 😉

    Ive created a forums post on palemoon forums: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=11210 Becuase ive read that the PaleMoon Dev wants to know how is useing his sync server / token server fork… https://www.palemoon.org/sync/ i hope there is a chance to get in touch and it working… It is only a one liner (change one url and get Sync Working again)….

    So i hope the best…!

    so with this patch the PaleMoon sync server can be used, but not firefox sync (using mozilla servers)?. Im not sure about that… I think that it’s something that should be asked upstream (icecat)

    hi @matias, the build stuff looks great. i just ran it through to completion so I reckon it’s ready for merge to the main repo. what do you think?

    i made a couple of changes to your IceCat fork. makeicecat had some bash syntax errors. preumably differences between Fedora and Debian. see here https://gitlab.com/Manizuca/IceCat/merge_requests/1. also I ran ‘fdroid rewritemeta’ in the fdroiddata fork as the build fails without this. i havn’t done a merge request for that one as I had issues forking your fdroiddata over the top of my fork of the main fdroiddata.

    one other issue is the build fails if ANDROID_NDK is not set. it should be set so this is not an issue with the build. but just flagging it as I wasted a bit of time figuring out what was going on. if ANDROID_NDK is not set it results in the string “$ANDROID_NDK” being added to the PATH which is interpreted as a relative directory. this in turn causes find commands with -execdir to fail raising security concerns with relative paths in PATH.

    #18848

    @chatch thanks for the MR. F-Droid by default uses $ANDROID_NDK in ndk_paths, you can change it in config.py

    Only available in the archive, e.g. https://f-droid.org/archive/org.gnu.icecat_380600.apk. Next version will be available in mainline.
