will require App Bundles for new apps in Play, thereby forcing developers to give Google their app's private signing key. This further centralizes the ecosystem and strengthens their by making it harder to publish outside of Play

> This format requires giving a copy of your app’s signing key to Google so the Google Play Developer Console can generate a bundle with signed versions of each APK in the bundle;

That sounds too bizarre. What would even be the point of a private key at that point? Why wouldn't Play just sign it all with its own key like F-Droid does? Could there be some misunderstanding?
