@jonas.smedegaard Do you think it's worth packaging and if so who will be the maintainer?

I think it is unlikely that anyone in Purism staff will take on the task of packaging a fork of Chromium: Our priority is on a web browser usable both on desktops and phones, and the main contender there is GNOME Browser a.k.a. Epiphany.

You (or anyone else you might convince to take on the task) are recommended to get your browser of choice packaged for Debian officially. Then if it complies also with GNU guidelines it will automatically get included with PureOS as well.

@mak Installable binaries have already been built for Buster. I suppose I could dpkg-buildpackage it from source in Amber but nobody would benefit from it other than myself. I'd like to convince you to make it happen :-) Oh, please! :-)

@jonas.smedegaard It is not easy to make a browser, especially one that complies with Purism's requirements. If you succeed, let me know about it though. I'd love to check it out asap.
