Yes, for F-Droid the custom flavor is used. We should consider making a dedicated flavor for F-Droid to avoid this permission request there.

Hi Legoktm,

as far as I know the permission is in the custom build flavor only (it was moved from the main build channel to it in commit[1]). I'm not sure, what flavor is used for fdroid, it's using the custom channel, it get's the permission (added in [2]).

When I upgrade from 2.1.137-fdroid to 2.1.141-fdroid (I fell a little
behind in staying up to date), the Android Wikipedia app requests the
"run at startup" permission. Is this intentional? Why does the app need
to run at startup?
