Description

For future releases, we would like to have not only the Google App store provided with fresh builds, but in parallel also F-Droid
This needs updating in the release documentation and of course doing :-)

History

#1 Updated by Florian Effenberger 4 months ago

There might be someone taking care of that already - before looking into doing yourself, can you check who's doing that, and how you could support them/co-maintain things?

Any feedback?

#4 Updated by Mike Saunders 3 months ago

For the next F-Droid release, can we do some description text updates, like we've done on the Play Store:

LibreOffice is the best free office suite on the desktop, and is now available on Android as a native application. LibreOffice Viewer supports many document formats:

• Open Document Format (odt, ods and odp)
• Microsoft Office 2007/2010/2013 (docx, xlsx and pptx)
• Microsoft Office 97/2000/XP/2003 (doc, xls and ppt)

LibreOffice Viewer also comes with a preview of the editing functionality, which is considered an experimental feature and not stable enough for mission critical tasks. (Visit the Settings to enable this feature.)

Feedback and bug reports are very welcome, to help developers improve the quality of the application on its way to being a full-featured editor. You can report bugs and attach files that trigger them here: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org

LibreOffice Viewer is using the same engine as LibreOffice for Windows, macOS and Linux. This, combined with a new front end based on Firefox for Android, reads documents similarly to LibreOffice on the desktop.

Also, I'm not sure if these fields are generated automatically in the listing from meta-data, but it'd be good to keep them:

Would be good to see some progress here before you (Cloph) go on vacation

#6 Updated by Florian Effenberger about 1 month ago

  • Target version changed from Q3/2017 to Q4/2017

Can you give me a summary of the status quo? What are the next steps to get this done?
I checked https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.libreoffice.impressremote/ and did see no point of contact, so whom were you actually mailing? ;-)

Isn't it just that we have to follow https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md ?

Any update on that, Cloph?

sent a poke, this time with Flo in cc

yes, using the repo would be the case if the LibreOffice Viewer would use one of the default android build-methods, but AFAICT there is only ant, gradle or maven defaults, not something like LO does (./autogen.sh --someopts; make; and only then run gradle/build)
