How apps are added to /e/ App Store?

Hi to all the community, very glad to meet you all :slight_smile:

I discovered /e/ project last month and i’m starting to take more informations to prepare my move to this wonderful OS.

But among my research i was wondering about the /e/ appstore : how do you get the apps from the Google Play Store to you own App Store ? Do you get their APK and bring them all manually to your own App Store or are you using some kind of “anonymous account” like Aurora or Yalp ?

If it’s manually how do you manage all the apps updates ?

I’m asking because i’m was upset to discover how much we are dependent to Play Store and Google and how much companies are just using only this store to deploy their apps, to me it’s very bad both for user than for developper.

I tried Amazon Store and then i laught because their store look abandonned, and i tried other stores but i didn’t feel weel and they don’t inspire trust (except F-Droid <3 ).
