Sooo this corona warn app seems to work without play service code now, thanks to @larma ! 馃帀

Currently you'll have to self-build and it only works in debug mode, but it seems to work.

WiP build instructions here: gitlab.com/fdroid/rfp/-/issues

Looking for a few people to test the Exposure Notifications API of @microg

- Update your microG to microg.org/dl/core-en.apk
- Install and set up your local gov corona tracing app xda-developers.com/google-appl
- Verify that microG settings has Exposure Notifications enabled and shows the app as using it
- When you are in public tomorrow, go to microG settings again and verify that "Collected IDs" shows a higher number

Thanks!

Yesterday, I finally pushed my current source code implementing the Exposure Notification API to the @microg git repository.
This will allow using apps that use the Google/Apple framework for COVID-19 contact tracing on Android devices without the Google tracking it usually involves.

The current code is already functional, but still needs some improvements before it's ready for general public, but I am certain it's going to make it in the next @microg release.

new in-depth analysis of #GoogleApple #ContactTracing apps: "[The #Google part]... seems to call home every ~20 minutes and shares the handset IMEI, SIM serial, phone number, email address and WiFi MAC address and lots of still-to-be-decoded data with Google. (Presumably more detailed app telemetry.)" scss.tcd.ie/Doug.Leith/pubs/co

I am not using reddit under the username mar-v-in. And microG development will continue. gist.github.com/mar-v-in/ad8d2

Why are people making up such things?

FOSS/proprietary moaning, Android 

Our app is entirely Open Source! See for yourself: all our code on Github is under a FOSS license.

*Proceeds to statically link against proprietary libraries and include these into the deliverable binary*

*Calls the result an Open Source app*
