I have submitted a new application to main F-Droid repository (via GitLab merge request) and got approved. But I found that half a day later, the application is still not searchable from main F-Droid repository’s web interface; though bot flagged my application build on the Wiki as success.
As I actually meant to use F-Droid as a primary channel for providing binaries, I would like to know more about the main F-Droid server/repository configuration (at f-droid.org), and what to expect in the term of response time:
- After a new application metadata is added to fdroiddata GitLab repository, how long it usually takes to make a new application appear in main F-Droid repository and its web interface?
- Does the process of adding new application (from newly-merged fdroiddata GitLab tree) to main F-Droid build server require manual intervention?
- How often each application’s upstream is checked for update? For example, if a new version tag appeared on upstream VCS, how long the main F-Droid build server takes to notice the change?
- Once upstream update is detected, how long it usually takes before the new version appear in main F-Droid repository and its web interface? And does this process require manual intervention/approval?
All of this assumes there are no toolchain, licensing, or policy compliance issue preventing the build from being made or distributed.
Thanks in advance.
