I'd like to clarify that this is a list of apps that are using our RB
support  to publish APKs signed by the upstream developer, after
our build server has verified that a build from source matches the
This way, the F-Droid build from source verifies the app is 100% free
software, and the upstream developer's signature verifies that our
build is 100% identical to theirs.
So this is only a subset of the apps that (happen to) build
reproducibly. Our verification server  rebuilds apps regularly,
showing that many more apps build reproducibly .
Also, whilst the overview  is currently updated manually,
generating the data is mostly automated . You might also like to
know that our RB documentation  was recently updated.
And lastly a sneak preview: we've already added 11 more RB apps this
month so far.
