Is it possible to submit an to without having a gitlab.com account?

I appreciate fdroid very much, however I find it disappointing that their main repo is hosted on a commercial business site like gitlab.com and that any contribution requires a gitlab.com account.

I am not willing to accept the unilateral, unfavorable tos of gitlab.com in order to be able to contribute two apps to fdroid.

Is anyone aware of an other way to achieve this?

@Billie @IzzyOnDroid lol, the totalyl different view than setho.org/@mase/10289402143115

summary:
here: ahh, this is too centralized, move away!
there: ahh, I need to create yet another account, better centralize this!

So… 🤷

@rugk
already made a great step towards federation by introducing .

However, a private repo still comes with a lot of disadvantages up to now.

@Billie @IzzyOnDroid Federated merge requests when

(yes, I have the URL to the issue, just meming 😀 )

@Billie I'm fully with you and wish F-Droid was on Codeberg already... You can of course ask someone else to file the rfp for you. I don't know where you host your code; if it's on Codeberg or Github, make an issue in your repo for that and ping me.

I won't make that a general offer, though - I'm already drowning in other tasks. So no guarantees I'll pick up all those requests 😋

@Billie @IzzyOnDroid you can ask in #fdroid matrix/freenode channel for the fdroid-anyone gitlab.com account credentials. I don't have them at hand but they were created for this reason.

@fdroidorg
Tanks for this! however at the moment @IzzyOnDroid is filing it for me and thankfully guides me through this process
