Subject: Providing Android builds

Providing Android builds

From: Jonas Häggqvist <>

For quite a while now, the Android builds have been perfectly usable, so
what would it take to provide builds for people to download?

The main issue with providing builds (aside from adapting the build
system, which seems to be in place now), is the question of signing.

Android lets you sign using a debug key, which provides no real security
and will expire every 6 months, afaiu. Providing builds, signed with such
a key, I think, would be fairly straight forward.

On the other hand, doing signing with a real key would be more proper, but
probably also more complicated for whoever has to implement it?

So my question is, what do we want to do?

Is there opposition to providing debug signed builds until properly signed
builds can be available?

Did I miss anything? Talk rubbish? Please correct me, I'm going by a vague
understanding of the situation.
