@fdroidorg why not include @IzzyOnDroid 's repository in official app? It's easily the second most useful repository. Adding it and showing a little warning when user enables should be fine.

@thorn @fdroidorg @IzzyOnDroid Yeah. I started using Aurora Droid but this is kind of question why it's not a part of the official app.

@surendrajat @thorn @fdroidorg @IzzyOnDroid
I just installed Aurora Droid, tried it and immediately dumped the Fdroid app.
Thank you Thorn.

@rudolf Yeah it's good. Now go to Repositories -> Repository List -> F-droid -> Check User mirror URL.
It'll give you faster download/index speeds.

@surendrajat We've discussed this in the past. Reason is the condition to come pre-configured there is to meet the same standards as F-Droid (i.e. build yourself from source etc), which I cannot meet.

Thanks for the warm words towards my repo – always glad to see my work being appreciated 😍

@IzzyOnDroid Hi :) Thanks for the explanation.
Yeah I guess some of the apps are not entirely build-able but most can. I just feel there are so many apps which don't ever transition to f-droid from your repo but are quite nice.

Anyways thanks for doing what you're doing. You're an inspiration.
