I just gave a small talk about F-Droid at FSFE Berlin. For this I gathered some stats about what happened in our repo over the last year. I did a similar thing about 1.5 years ago, you can find the numbers on page 9 of the pdf.
From Jan 2019 to 10th Feb 2020
Repository grew by 316 apps
Published 192 Index updates (avg. ~every 2 days)
Published 5662 apks (~14 apks per day)
Currently 2086 apps are present in the main repository (about 4000 including the archive)
|Number of Commits||User|
|5542||F-Droid Builder (Auto updater)|
Plus many, many more contributions from hundreds of others!
Counted across the whole project:
- Become a Maintainer: Adopt an App!
- Add screenshots, localized descriptions, what’s new texts to upstream repos
- Help with translations (In F-Droid or Upstream)
- Help with client development (especially UX)
- Help with website dev (ruby/jekyll)
- Help with Repomaker (Python Django App)
You can also donate money to us, to help us work on F-Droid not only in our free time. Consider using one of the free (as in free software) donation platforms like open collective or Liberapay. Both of these platforms allow for recurring donations, which is highly desirable for contributors who want make working on F-Droid part of their regular paid work.
The opencolletive is very new and we’ll do a proper announcement soon, after we added proper support for opencollective into the F-Droid client app and website.
You can find other donation options in the sidebar on f-droid.org.
