There has been a bunch of talk recently about IceCat on F-Droid IRC
(irc://irc.freenode.net/fdroid)  We'd love to have IceCat included,
since Firefox on Android includes binary blobs (Google Play Services).
Matías has made some progress (I cc'ed him, I don't know if he's on this

Matías, maybe you could subscribe to this list, and we can all
coordinate getting IceCat into F-Droid:

Or perhaps the f-droid forum is a better place:

I'd really like to see IceCat Android binaries being built from 100%
source (i.e. free jars are OK, but not binary blob, unfree jars).  With
F-Droid, we're working on making reproducible builds a lot easier.  So
that you'd post your official release, then F-Droid would build and
verify that the builds match before including it.
