It is still a work in progress. I am thinking of putting the package on 
a web site where it can be downloaded and installed. As far as google 
play is concerned, there is some disagreement on how to handle different 
versions, frontend has to be built for the same version as the backend. 
If people are running different versions of the backend how will they 
get the correct version of frontend if google play always supplies the 
latest version?
