Ultimately, saying that you don’t care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don’t care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. Or that you don’t care about freedom of the press because you don’t like to read. Or that you don’t care about freedom of religion because you don’t believe in God

This idea of privacy as a fundamental necessity is one of the reasons we decided to start this site. Having noticed that some privacy oriented software was not easily available, we started to prepare, build and provide some of it with this repository. This makes it easy to install and upgrade these applications without having to build them yourself.
We intend to focus on supporting ARM/aarch64 devices first and foremost, because that is where we have noticed a lack of software being available, but for some packages, x86_64 versions are also made available. It also is likely that we will provide software that is not strictly privacy-related, but is useful, harder to build or just plain missing in the future.
