I've done that. Though we still need to add all the infos from the
"Criteria for Android applications" thread and all our discussion back
inside that Replicant wiki page. Feel free to modify it and/or to ping
us on IRC if you don't have wiki edition permissions yet.

As I understand from the thread we'd need to make sure that these
applications can be compiled and review the source code off all the
dependencies and the dependencies of the dependencies.

RepWiFi was made, probably with only free software, for Replicant by a
Replicant user who seems to know well Java, so it's probably the
easiest application to review.

It might even have been compiled on Replicant at some point. If we find
trace of that and that we double check that it had no other
dependencies it should be FSDG compliant.

On my side I also need to also get more familiar with the Free
Software Directory as I don't know (yet) what information can be added
on software. Though I'm familiar with the Wikidata project that also has
a similar goal (store statements about things in a database) but it has
a much broader scope.
