APK Fission provides two services to the Adélie and Alpine communities:

First, we package free, open-source software which neither distribution will package due to their license policy (e.g. because the software has a noncommercial restriction), as well as software which is not open-source but available royalty-free or otherwise ‘gratis’ (e.g. firmware which may be freely distributed).

Equally important, however, is that we provide hosting and package-building infrastructure for projects which desire independence from both distributions’ release cycles. Please review our policy regarding such projects if this aspect is of interest.

APK Fission is not affiliated with Adélie Linux or Alpine Linux.
