During the security incident on Matrix.org’s production infrastructure, the attacker may have had access to the key we use to sign the #Riot #Android #app. Unfortunately, it is impossible to replace this #key without replacing the application.

In future, we will be storing the signing key offline for maximum security.

#SecurityByDefault without any incident is too much for a #software project?

F-Droid will follow the name change but will do it at a later point the f-droid signing key wasn't exposed so technically there's no need to switch the appid but it would create some confusion and maintenance overhead to not follow, so this is our best option.

Decentralizing Localizations

App development is already well decentralized, and when F-Droid

introduced metadata localization, we also made it possible to manage
translations and graphics
outside of F-Droid itself. Two tools, Fastlane and Triple-T, even
provide a way to sync those between the app source repo, F-Droid, and
Google Play.

Using Weblate for
handling all
F-Droid localization
puts contributors with expertise in specific languages and how they
should be translated in control of how everything in translated.
Weblate is the place where translations happen, it is the GitLab of
languages for the F-Droid community.

We as a community need to avoid putting too much maintenance work on a
few people so we can keep our “bus factor” high enough to survive all
things that come our way. People often request that F-Droid handle
the localization of their app, but that would centralize the work in a
place where it is much harder to share the workload. So app graphics
or localized texts should be handled by the upstream app developer as
much as possible, instead of sticking everything into fdroiddata .

That said, there are some apps with localized metadata in
fdroiddata . The graphics and descriptions were added there to get
things started when the metadata localization was first rolled out.
Now that we have hundreds of apps that manage their own localization,
we can move all that upstream as well.

We have also started a project to provide a translated 80-character
summary for all apps in the archive. So if upstream developers are
not willing to manage the localization, F-Droid can at least have this
key piece translated so that users can see screens in only their
language when navigating the Android client and website. That you can
see on
fdroiddata-localizations .
I am currently managing that, but would love to increase our bus
factor by getting more maintainers involved there. At this point, it
is mostly a matter of running some syncing scripts, and checking to
make sure the scripts did not do anything stupid.

Anbox: una forma sencilla de correr apps de #Android en GNU/Linux





Android tiene un kernel Linux, pero el desarrollo de las apps y la APIs que se usan para este sistema son diferentes a las que tenemos en GNU/Linux. Por eso no podemos correr apps de este sistema operativo de Google en nuestra distro Linux de una forma sencilla. Nos hace falta algun emulador o software que nos ayude a generar una capa de compatibilidad de forma similar a cómo lo hace Wine para el software nativo de Microsoft Windows.

Existen varios de estos proyectos que nos pueden ayudar a ejecutar aplicaciones Android dentro de nuestra distro GNU/Linux, pero si quieres una sencilla, esa es Anbox. Se trata de una capa de compatibilidad, al igual que Wine, y por supuesto también es de código abierto y libre. Su objetivo es poder ejecutar cualquier aplicación de Android en otros sistemas operativos Linux, y cumple bien su objetivo como otros poryectos como Genimobile, Shashlik, etc.

Privacy Preserving Analytics

F-Droid always avoids tracking users as much as we can.  We will never

require an account, and we have put a lot of
effort into making it hard
for even the f-droid.org server to track users. We also recognize
that usage data has value. It can be used to help show the level of
popularity, and to provide app developers some feedback on what users
like.

After years of moving totally away from data, including disabling
download counts on f-droid.org , we have started an experiment with
tracking usage without tracking users. We are building upon the
work of
Tor Project
and
Guardian Project .
We have enabled access logging on https://search.f-droid.org and
https://mirror.f-droid.org/ for the initial trial. ( Note: search
on f-droid.org could happen
fully client-side using javascript, in that case, those searches will
never hit search.f-droid.org and therefore will not be logged ).

The one caveat here is that Nginx does not allow custom time formats
like Apache does, so the web logs will contain exact date and time of
each hit. The time zone is zeroed out. The raw logs will not be
published, and they will be sanitized before being fed into any
analytics system like Matomo/Piwik. Also, Nginx does not allow custom
error log formats, so errors will have complete information. The
error logs will therefore not be used in analytics without full
sanitation, and are only kept for a short time period.

Our Setup

Our servers run Debian, so this gives commands for that
context. First, ensure that Nginx is set up with the “geoip” extension.
That enables Nginx to convert IP addresses into country codes, so that
country codes are logged instead of IP addresses.

apt-get install libnginx-mod-http-geoip geoip-database


Then enable the custom logging setup in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf :

geoip_country / usr / share / GeoIP / GeoIP . dat ;
log_format privacy '0.0.0.0 - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" $status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" "-" $geoip_country_code' ;

access_log / var / log / nginx / access . log privacy ;

This then makes the access log data look like:

tail /var/log/nginx/access.log
