I'm focusing my efforts on Replicant 9, so I just checked the patch
doesn't do anything horribly wrong:

Feel free to push.

> Distrbution Guidelines(FSDG).
> This is beacause we hoped to resolve the issue upstream in
> a timely manner, but that didn't happen.
> As we now focus on a longer term solution, it doesn't make
> any sense to keep F-Droid as-is in Replicant.
> That new approach would enable to have an extremely low
> maintenance cost for both F-Droid and Replicant if it
> is merged upstream.
> It would also enable users and developers of other
> Android distributions to use it.
