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

- Update your microG to
- Install and set up your local gov corona tracing app
- 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
- Report back here with device name and android version+rom


Still sad that will not take place this year. It was one of my favourite conferences of the year in an exciting location with super-friendly people and organisers.

Looking forward to the t-shirts though, always a must-have!

Great news from @kde: the KDE Framework is fully compliant, so perfectly reusable from a copyright/licensing perspective – and this is just the start of their journey!

Excellent work and yet another example that REUSE is suited also for large and old projects.

@sengi_app I just discovered your project, just what I searched for, thank you! I didn't find documentation on how to install Sengi as a web-app on my own infrastructure. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Is there something like for Mastodon already? So:

* Multi-account (I can reply a notification of my first account in the name of the second account)
* Web-based (so can be integrated in Rambox/Franz for instance)
* Ideally self-hostable, but not a must

Thanks for any hints!

The German Corona Warn App went live today. F-Droid cannot distribute the app for multiple reasons:

1) The core bluetooth contact tracing functionality is only implemented in Google play services and requires proprietary client libs to be included in the app.
2) The google api mentioned above is only available for use by apps which are whitelisted by google and distributed through the play store.
