Unofficial (and incomplete) list of F-Droid repositories

I’ve already introduced F-Droid with my article Android Markets: How safe are alternative sources? – and gave a more detailed walk-through in my article series F-Droid: The privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play Store. Number of apps meanwhile has increased to over 2,000 on their main repo, and still all of them are available free of charge – being open-source after all. If you’re already using the F-Droid app you might have noticed it serves multiple repositories, with a few of them already pre-configured. And you can add more. Now the point is: what other repositories do exist? I try to close that gap here, giving you a list of repositories I’ve found so far. Feel free to contact me if you think there’s an error in the list – or if you happen to know more of them :)

:warn: Use these repositories at your own risk: not all of them hold „stable builds“ intended for use in „productive environments“. Some are explicitly declared for test builds or experimental versions. So please don´t integrate them blindly – but check the corresponding background first. Also note that „cross-updates“ between the main F-Droid repo and other sources is not possible, as F-Droid builds and signs the .apk files in its own process.
