Its because the F-Droid build includes binaries for multiple architectures in the same apk. You can open it with any zip program to see. @shilangyu@lemmy.ml

Probably the wrong place to ask this, but why was that decided? For instance, google play also supports multiple architectures but just exposes the apk for the current architecture to reduce the apk size

Thats something you have to ask the F-Droid maintainers ;)

F-Droid supports multiple architectures. See Fennec F-Droid where combining these architectures to one APK is not able. But if that’s used, our bot can’t auto-update apps…

For more questions, just ask :D

Hmm that’s interesting, ~7MB should be the expected size
