With the probability in mind that many members of this community take a ‘FOSS-first’ approach to technology, I’ll not rehash concerns pertaining to F-Droid here.
Please consider targeting Accrescent for APK distribution; ideally as an outright replacement for F-Droid. It’s a promising alternative to the traditional channels of (open source) APK management with a fundamentally different approach to sourcing & signing. While it has yet to draw attention from a large number of developers, it’s actively maintained and a presumed boost in users by way of including popular apps such as this one would go a long ways.
I am not affiliated with Accrescent in any way, nor do I stand to see personal benefit from its broadened adoption.
