Default FOSS(Free/Libre) Software Repository

For anyone who likes to use/support FOSS and have access to the source code for what they install, f-droid.org has a handy app that lets you see only FOSS apps(you can loosen the restriction in the settings somewhat if need be).

I've found the two pane file explorer and SSH ConnectBot and the IRC client to be excellent for my purposes. Anyone else using any of it?

Yes I use those apps (ghost commander you are talking about) as well as k9mail, osmand and about 10 more. Actually I've stopped using Google Play altogether. The problem I have is that many open source apps are getting released all the time and a lot of them dont get into f-droid , for various reasons, the main one being there is not enough developers to put together the recipes. You can suggest an app on the f-droid forums but you might have to wait a while until a developer gets around to collecting the metadata, inspecting the source code for dodgy bits, and merging it. This post http://f-droid.org/forums/topic/addi...-git/#post-587 explains the process and it doesn't look that hard. I think if more developers were aware of its existence and submitted their own apps the repo would be a lot healthier.
