## What are the requirements an app must meet to be included with the repo?
The app …
* should be free and Open Source
* should be free (as in „free beer“ **and** as in „free speech“) and Open Source
* must be targeted at end users (so no libraries, proof-of-concept demos, etc.)
* its code must be freely accessible, preferably at [Github], [GitLab], [NotABug] or a similar platform
* that code repository should have a proper description so it gets clear what it is

to 3 versions. Also, certain categories of apps are not accepted – e.g. games.
Exceptions are made, but not often.
## Are there any app categories which are not acceptable to this repo?
* Games are unlikely to be accepted (though exceptions are possible, e.g. for educational games)
* Apps promoting violence, hate, harassment, racism and similar topics will definitely be rejected.
* „Explicit content“ is not welcome here – mainly for the reason that all age groups incl. „minors“ should have access to this repo.
* Apps which are loaded with trackers (Analytics, Ads, etc.) are no good, as they pose dangers to the user's privacy.
* Also for the reason of tracking, apps for Facebook, WhatsApp & Co won't be accepted.
This list is not complete (I might add to it if need arises), but should give you a raw idea.

to be considered as well. So if you're just a happy user looking how you can give
some „backing“ – you're very welcome to do so [via LiberaPay](https://liberapay.com/IzzyOnDroid),
e.g. setting up to send over a few cents per month.
