We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

@Cedara But for what reason? You can't prevent third parties from redistribution libre software, the license allows it…

So unless it's redistributed with a license violation like changing the license/add usage limitations) or that version contains malware, you can't just report it.

Of course, if it's a malware, that's a good reason to report it… but I don't think google gives a flying fuck… They prefer to censor apps for arbitrary reasons like they did with with both Fedilab and Tusky…

Yes, but I don't think it's the purpose when the name of the app is "Fedilab - cracked versions"

Also, references to the source code has been removed from the app description.

It is also classified as "PEGI 3" that doesn't respect Social Media age.

There is nothing that could help to trust that version.

@apps Ok, of course it's clearly suspicious in that case…

Removing the reference to the source code repo is enough… Not to mention the "cracked version" bullshit.
