I've been using orgzly, and I didn't even realize it had dropbox support
:-) Looking at f-droid, I don't see an antifeature, so I'm not sure
what's up there.

I keep my org files in git.  I use orgzly as readonly because sync/merge
is basically messy, especially since orgzly has a notion of sync from
orgzly internal to android filesystem, and then one has to sync that.
(It might work fine, but I have never tried.)

I have a clone of my org repo on a regular computer, and run syncthing
there and on the phone.  The org repo that is special for syncthing gets
updated every morning.  So whenever the phone has power and wifi
(because I set it that way), it gets a copy of the repo that is
reasonably fresh.

orgzly itself has been solid  and it is kept updated on f-droid.

It is true that syncthing has relay and discovery servers, but they can
indeed be turned off.   My understanding is that the servers run open
source code and do not have plaintext access, but I can of course see
why you don't want that, both to avoid traffic analysis and on
