        It’s still there. You said nothing about a specific repository. That’s not “missinfo”. How about you calm your rhetoric.

          because it’s not in the fdroid or IzzyOnDroid repo… so explain

          I showed you the creator of signal explicitly saying he refuses to support fdroid

              Signal-Foss has been made redundant and has stopped development for years. They added push notifications on degoogled phones, but Signal added that themselves.

              The CalyxOS repository is a smaller repo only preinstalled on CalyxOS phones and it’s really rarely added outside of Calyx phones. So I’m going to take a guess you’re running CalyxOS to have that on your fdroid. Which I love the CalyxOS project btw, I’ve used them for a number of years and did a few commits to the project.

                To be fair both are small repositories, yes, but I managed to find them both when looking for a way to install Signal via F-Droid. And no, I’m not running CalyxOS, but a different degoogled ROM :)

                I might be wrong, but TwinHelix’s Signal-FOSS seems to still be active, the latest update I found on their F-Droid repository and their GitHub is from yesterday: https://github.com/tw-hx/Signal-Android/releases/tag/v6.32.5.0-FOSS

                But anyway, I just wanted to share these 2 sources since I saw the Signal / F-Droid discussion happening. It could be useful to someone. I don’t know enough to judge what option is better.

      Is there some signing in place to ensure it’s not a malicious repo? I don’t really trust unofficial F-Droid repos.

        Unfortunately not. I’m trusting others who know better but if you want trusted as best as it can be you’re stuck with the play store sadly.

          If I remember correctly F-Droid supports reproducible builds, but it’s a matter of the app developer supporting them. So there is light at the end of the tunnel, we’re just not there yet.
