Hi Benoît,

Thanks for your work and getting in touch!

First, there’s an introduction on how to contributing to Org here.  In
particular, I think you’d even need to assign copyright to your
documentation patches, but I’m not sure (hopefully someone will chime


Second, I suggest that you propose the necessary changes to Appendix B
called MobileOrg.  At the very least we should mention your program, I
think.  Perhaps the instructions must also be altered slightly to work
with SyncOrg (I haven’t tried it).


The manual is the doc/org.texi.  If you don’t care for texinfo I’m sure
someone could take of the formatting (to the extend it’s necessary) if you
provide the needed changes.

Third, as pointed out, it would be best if it's in Fdroid as well, as many
probably don’t have access to the google play store (like me).

Thanks again,
