Hi Ethan, all,

Me too, though I also don't like downloading APKs from lots of different 
sources. I stopped using Google Play a few years ago and since then have only 
installed from . As Bernd indicated that it would be 
difficult to get applications written in GForth included in the main F-Droid 
repository, I suggest that the GForth project hosts their own 
F-Droid-compatible repository for freedom-reviewed Android applications written 
in GForth.
        Btw., in my previous emails, I was assuming that GForth is a GNU 
project, but I'm not sure. Who controls ? Either way, it'd 
be a lot safer installing from fewer sources, and GForth seems to me to be as 
trustworthy as GNU, so I'd be happy with either or GNU-hosted 
if those 2 possibilities are not the same thing.

Best regards,
