I found this app while searching on github, thought some people here might be interested.

    Interesting initiative and the description in the README is promising. However, I think the developer is messing with the license. A cursory look tells me he wants to preserve original AntennaPod’s GPLv3 license while licensing his modifications and additions as MIT, which is incongruent. I am not a lawyer but as far as I can tell, once a piece of code is GPLv3, all its next iterations must respect such license to the letter, that is, keep it under GPLv3.

    Installed it and in the settings you can see the following message at the bottom of the settings.

    Anyone willing to open an issue in both Antenna’s and Podcini’s repositories? I am mobile, can’t at the moment.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Edit: created a quick issue in the repository, feel free to chime in, follow along.

      It should be ok to have your own changes and patches as another compatible license.

      The real requirement is that when it’s all together and released if there is gpl code then the bundle license needs to be gpl. But you can have individual changes and patches as MIT license if you want.

        That is correct. IANAL but you can license your patch-set however you want. Only thing is you can’t confuse people which part is which.

        It turns out upstream did have the MIT license tucked in there, so it’s not like he added it, it was there. Care to join the discussion in the GitHub issue?

      It just arrived in the IzzySoft “IzzyOnAndroid F-Droid Repo”. So if you added that to your repositories, you can now install it with the F-Droid App. It’s not in the main F-Droid repo, but AntennaPod is.

      (Add extra repos with care.)

          It really isn’t. While the requirements are less strict than for the main repo, there is a review process to add a new app and I think they also have some automated checks. Additionally, Izzy (the maintainer of izzyondroid) is (was?) a member of the fdroid team.

          Does this mean that every app there is legitimate? Of course not, but the same can be said about any other app store/repository.

        Yes I understand that, but ‘pretty much’ is not ‘entirely’, so I am looking for confirmation.

        I set up nextcloud via docker on a raspberry pi and installed gpodder sync there. That is working for me.

      Just tried it: I was able to connect to gpodder sync and sync my, subscriptions. Unfortunately, the data is not being parsed end I end op with a list of podcasts all titled ‘Unknown podcast’ with no episodes or any other data or information.
