Hello, I contacted Adam Williamson about this last night and he asked
me to report it somewhere more official. Here seems the logical place. Please take action
if necessary to get the app removed from Google Play Store. Below is a complete copy of
what I sent him.
"Hello Adam, are you aware of this app in the Play Store and did Fedora Project
sanction the usage of the incorrect 'Fedora' developer name and logos associated
with it? The permissions required also seem way over the top for what the app supposedly
It came to my attention because someone posted a question about it on FedoraForum.org
today. I'm one of the forum staff there so wanted to check out what was going on with
the app. I raised this thread in the forum staff lounge and another admin further raised
my suspicions about the legitimacy of the app.
The developer name is Fedora, not Fedora Project and the contact email seems to be a made
up gmail account.
So to say it raises a few warning flags is an under statement. To me, it seems like
someone is passing off as 'Fedora' when they have no actual connection to Fedora
Project other than being a potentially over enthusiastic user.
If you collectively decide it needs taking down, then someone from Fedora Project with an
official connection could start the process by reporting the app via the link on the store
page above. I believe they'll take more notice if it comes from an official
representative rather than a user.
