Description

Hi,

F-Droid [0] is an alternative market for FOSS Android apps. It's particularly useful for people not using the Gapps (ok, a minority).

Anyway, as ScummVM is free software, it would be good if it were available on F-Droid as well (they build from source themselves). The submission process seems to mostly consist of creating a topic on the specific forum [1], and providing metadata that F-Droid can use (by providing a patch to [2]).

There is already discussion about it: http://f-droid.org/forums/topic/scummvm . There is a problem with getting the source for the audio component set up, and the problem of how to distribute all the separate libraries which all have different package ids: this would clutter up the F-droid repo a lot, seeing as it only has 500 apps.

The forum topic seems to be rather overcomplicating things; I posted over at their forum pointing out that you don't need to make a plugin build. Anyone wanting help with builds is, as usual, welcome to drop into our IRC channel; I'm usually around for at least some European waking hours.

However, they don't seem to document much about how their build system actually works, so I'm closing this bug on our side.
