Repomaker Flatpak
SourceTranslationState

This effort definitely needs help, and **[@\_hc](https://forum.f-droid.org/u/hans)** has proposed to allocate some of F-Droid's resources to the cause. More help still is needed, so he also put out a [Call for Help](https://forum.f-droid.org/t/call-for-help-making-free-software-builds-of-the-android-sdk/4685) on the forum. Please have a look to see if there's something you could do.

F-Droid buildserver container
1256
**[@Bubu](https://forum.f-droid.org/u/Bubu)** has been working on a Docker container of the buildserver which can run all F-Droid builds. It should become usable by app developers, so they can run it locally and test their apps against it. So far it looks to be a little over 7 GB, which is a lot better than the >30GB VM image. What's still missing is the ability to download missing NDK versions on demand.

**[@nicoalt](https://forum.f-droid.org/u/nicoalt)** is making good progress on packaging [Repomaker](https://f-droid.org/en/repomaker/) as a flatpak. It's not finished yet, but he's getting close. We are also happy to report that we had good response to our call for help on Mastodon, and now have **[@Persival](https://gitlab.com/Persival)** working on the flatpak continuously!

TWIF Call for Help
1262
And finally, yours truly had a drastic reduction in the amount of available spare time, in the shape of a new job. This impacts {{ page.twifTag }}, as it needs to be written in 50% less time from now on. I put out a [call for help](https://forum.f-droid.org/t/twif-needs-your-help/4658) on the forum and on Mastodon, and I love how **[@vanitasvitae](https://gitlab.com/vanitasvitae)** has picked up the gauntlet and is adding missing changelogs to the [metadata](https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata), like [here](https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/merge_requests/4004) and [here](https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/merge_requests/4005). There were also some good submissions to the {{ page.twifThread }}.
1263
Nevertheless, ongoing help is needed! Please have a look at the [forum thread](https://forum.f-droid.org/t/twif-needs-your-help/4658), send in tips, or better yet, complete news items. I'm also looking for someone who would be interested in writing at least one TWIF a month.
