Firstly, I'd like to say that I wish I'd known about this project a long time ago. My old Aquaris E4.5 has a new lease of life and the install process couldn't have been any easier.
I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 (OTA-5) and can't find any scopes in open store. I would really like to get today, news and local scopes if possible. Do I need to add any other repository?
Seems you should read this
Ah that's a shame. The today scope in particular is the single most useful thing I've seen on any phone. I understand the reasoning though.
