Thanks to using Flutter we would not even have to port it, it would compile
as is, to a native App build - albeit currently with material, not native
iOS, theme.

The issues are more legal ones, aGPL as GPL apps are not exactly conform
with the Apple store's terms of service[0].

Possible we could go a route like the mosh project and add a specific waiver
for iOS[1], but I'm not the one deciding that alone and also not the biggest
fan of such things either.

Rather, I'd like to add the App in more free repositories, like F-Droid, but
something like that does not exists for Apple platform neither, IIRC.

We will evaluate it more closely in the future, and if there's a reasonable way
which also honors the open source commitment of ours, we will make a release on
any Platform possible.

cheers,
Thomas
