I sent a request [0] for adding IceCat to F-Droid. As we try to not download things at build-time, im using a fork [1] for the moment. I would like this to work with upstream IceCat, should i use the mailing list to send a patchset, or u use another system?

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.


Is the source code easy enough to reuse for an Android variant?

Seems a similar project:

 From what I can tell they just disable the test suit and the crash
reporter. Other than that it is the standard Mozilla Fennec.

But it is surprising that you mention this, since I managed to build
IceCat for Android yesterday. That, and more surprises, coming soon.
