@fdroidorg here's a classic tactic: use "open source" to get devs hooked, then gradually slip in proprietary bits. 's core apps move ever more towards proprietary, and they also do this with libraries like com.google.ar:core github.com/google-ar/arcore-an

@fdroidorg is dedicated to enforcing for apps. There is big money pushing hard to make people slip, Google is one of those. I've been working on free software since 1994, and from what I've seen, this approach is the only way to make progress. If no one enforces it, then everyone just slips into proprietary software.

@ConnyDuck @fdroidorg you're contributions are always valuable! We're in the middle of a lot of things now, including a major overhaul of the guts of fdroidclient, the buildserver, setting up F-Droid as its own legal entity, etc. etc. So I've only had time recently to review things I'm directly working on. That also means that fdroidclient is working async, so your merge request won't bitrot so fast and is still valuable. Of course, we should be communicating all this more.

Native download executables from the internet and executes them. It bypasses the gradle verification methods. Anyone know if it does any of its own?

Anyone in "the West" having a hard time understanding why Russians follow Putin, think back to Cold War days. We were taught that Soviets were just itching to kill us, and we needed a strong defense. For example, Red Dawn was taken seriously in 1984 youtube.com/watch?v=1_I4WgBfET
