Openrepos vs Official Jolla Store

I see many developers only updating on open repos and not on the official Jolla store. Is there a specific reasons as to why?

It’s because application submitted to Jolla Store should only use the API approved by Jolla and number of available API is limited for now(Jolla has informed that new API will be approved once stabilized) .

and many other reasons:

  • cant add custom services (background processes, with autorun)
  • cant use pre post build scripts in spec files|
  • cant use many dependencies in rpm ( need add all dependencies libs to rpm )
