I still need a bit of context to the topic, because this additional permission notification is still occuring with DAVx5 188.8.131.52-ose (via F-Droid). My use case is syncing only via WLAN and only in my private LAN.
My device ist running an ASOP 8.0 (no Google installed), so yes, it’s still affected by this and requires permissions. I actually granted all required persmissions to the app itself, but still - because I don’t want it to be running - the GPS position stuff is turned off on the device. This seems to be an issue for DAVx5.
Now I wonder is this too broadly taylored by the Android permission system or is it not precisely requested by DAVx5? I don’t really get, why DAVx5 needs my GPS location to know the SSID?
By the way DAVx5 is still successfully syncing. That’s another surprising finding and I’m happy that it works.
It would be nice, if someone could clarify the situation with these permissions on Android or - better - helps out with a workaround or a fix (in case it is an DAVx5 issue) to get rid if the notification.
Thanks in advance and thanks for DAVx5 in general. Good to have it!
