Dear Syncthing community,
When I started an Android app for Syncthing in 2014 ago, I never thought that I would still work on this app four years later. And I never thought that over 100.000 people would eventually download this app.I learned a lot during this time, like programming and maintaining a software project. Even more, I learned how much effort goes into an open source project like this, and how difficult this is to do on a volunteer basis.
But now, I won’t be able to work on the Syncthing apps any more. I am soon going on an extended vacation, without a proper laptop, and probably without internet access for some time. Right now I have no idea what I will do after this vacation, or even where I will live. That’s why I am stepping down as the maintainer of the Syncthing Android apps. I will keep using Syncthing, and I will be around in case there are any questions about the existing apps.
As for the existing projects Syncthing Android, Syncthing Lite, and Syncthing Java, I hope that someone (or multiple people) will step up and take over maintaining them. I will then hand over all the signing keys and logins. We can also move the apps to a new Google Play account.
