There are no resource limits on the container, so I have no idea what goes wrong here.
Does this code access a device that is maybe unavailable?

Well, it seems quite easy to me to fix T663 (blacklist all non-free services). But you can't whitelist CardDAV and CalDAV support, it needs to be implemented first… The upstream bug report is pending for six years now.

Yes, and that means that by default to my knowledge PureOS supports

for calendar and addressbook sync. The only freedom respecting option is Nextcloud/Owncloud (which uses these standard protocols by the way).

I uploaded a file rather than typing in the text directly because i am not familiar with phabricator, and the changes to purebrowser and installed extensions made it even more flakey in my hands, and after having my text twice wiped out, and rushing to catch a plane, it was easier to put a file on my computer. and upload it.
Also when you upload a file to emacs, no one knows it is uploaded as it is simply appended to the buffer, but phabricator chooses not to do that.

"Breeze" is the name of the default icon theme in Plasma.
