PureOS is not fully in sync with Debian
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Forks of important libraries in Debian (and adding patches) are likely to occur over time. There must be a sane way to keep track of these deviations and their eventual way back into upstream. This is true for both the Librem 5 phone and laptops.

This issue is meant to track these patched libraries until the changes are merged upstream. Any application that deviates (from the application available in Debian testing) can be linked as a dependency to this issue so that all deviations can be tracked in one place.

Deviations from Debian are - in a way - tracked at a global level at http://master.pureos.net/synchrotron/ - going to a per-patch level would be nicer, but this page already gives an overview of packages that have been modified in PureOS and where a newer version of them is available in Debian.
That way currently, changes in PureOS are reviewed regularly, any time we merge in a newer package from Debian.

@heather.ellsworth I took the liberty of retitling "your" issue here to describe the issue to be addressed.

That makes it more intuitive to work with (e.g. what is shown in lists as striked out when solved is the annoyance not e.g. a proposed solution).

jonas.smedegaard changed the status of subtask T223: psensor - promotes non-free NVIDIA driver via libxnvctrl from "Resolved" to "Invalid".
