From the former most prolific Dev' on the project, the idea of Matrix instead of ONLY IRC, was rebuffed. Then, it was decided to have an official homeserver and decentralized-federated rooms, i.e. #fdroid-official:matrix.org which is also an Alias for #fdroid:f-droid.org . You are free to be a member there, and here. You will have to accept any issues brought via bridging to IRC including "Joe Job" spam, getting kicked for idling, et cetera. But do not FUD on this proactively moderated self-support community of End Users. At the time of this writing, it is still acknowledged by the official presence, i.e. in +fdroid:matrix.org ••• No need to introduce yourself, nor greet others; whereas "lurking"/idling is fine. "Don't ask to ask! Just ask." - This is NOT a General Chat. Go fill the scrollback with hi-hello ping-pong somewhere else like #offtopic:matrix.org . Put your greetings within a topical message! ••• No unappreciative, disruptive, malcontent Concern Troll FUD meta-chat (chat about the chat) is allowed; you can LEAVE and join the cesspit of #offtopic:matrix.org !!! • It is polite to ASK in the room BEFORE inviting someone into a Direct Chat. This is EXPECTED before DC'ing Mod's, and futile AFTER being banned. Can't behave in the room, don't waste our time in a D.C. Full stop. ••••71 Servers

12:31:50@passing_by:matrix.orgpassing_byHey guys, how do I know when the next repository update will happen? There has been a massive update of Telegram, the foss version was built yesterday, I am looking forward do updating it from F-droid
12:38:20@MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgMMJD-MxO Don't expect anything to update in ONE day, not unless they switch to verifying others' builds, e.g. verification of builds directly from an app's Dev', as opposed to the.F-Droid Dev's doing their OWN builds on an AIRGAPPED system.
12:42:43@passing_by:matrix.orgpassing_byUnderstood. What's the cadence then? How often are the builds done?

Hard to say, really. AIUI it all involves manual action; and don't forget we're in the midst of a "little" AHEM "global situation".

There ARE other repo's you can add to the F-Droid app', i.e. izzy'. Read this room's FULL /topic.

12:54:42@passing_by:matrix.orgpassing_byYeah, I know. I am not interested in other repos for this, I just want to know for how long I should extend my patience

Plenty, unless you plan on going back to G'® Play™.

You can, of course, just set F-Droid to notify you upon updates, and stop obsessing. And I'm sure the Dev's need to be careful of a certain little virus that came from China.

13:45:07@MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgMMJD-MxO Ya' know… It's customary, when someone spends their time trying to, or actually helping you, to express a bit of gratitude. But millennial-hipsters have not been taught etiquette, only nihilism and narcissism.
