Build types

APS can optionally bundle additional code that is either proprietary or typically frowned upon within the FOSS community (like telemetry) to provide user-facing features and assist development efforts through anonymized usage data.

To counter that, and continue providing FOSS-only binaries through F-Droid, APS implements the free and nonFree (free as in freedom) build types to allow the same codebase to be able to generate both FOSS-friendly binaries as well as ones with optional proprietary code that enables extra features.

Below are the feature differences between the free and nonFree build variants. Any features not mentioned below are available to both build types.
