help users buy phones with F-Droid
Right now It's really hard for non-tech users to get setup with F-Droid. I think it would be a major improvement to help users get started with options to buy a phone preloaded with F-Droid + Privileged extension.

We've got a forum thread tracking who ships F-Droid. https://forum.f-droid.org/t/who-ships-f-droid-roms-repos-forks-etc/14185/ Some of these are actually selling phones. Some options might be: Calyx, ShiftOsL, iode, ...
To upload designs, you'll need to enable LFS and have an admin enable hashed storage. More information
