    I agree with the others that doing it on your phone is likely not realistic, but I wanted to point out that the f-droid machinery is open source, including (of course) the build descriptors, so I would suspect you can either setup your own GitLab pipelines to build pushes that you control, or -- with a little bit of elbow grease -- setup GitHub Actions that behave similarly. That story would be considerably easier if you're only tracking 3-4 apps (versus, say, 50 of them) since at that scale copy-pasta-deployment can be a perfectly reasonable approach

  • OpenKeychain

    OpenKeychain is an OpenPGP implementation for Android.

    I'm not the OP, but every GitHub (and GitLab) releases page has a corresponding Atom feed for it: allows tracking new releases using standard tooling

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
