Phabricator's API is called conduit. I can pull data from conduit and it looks like this;

I think "blobs" is tricky terminology which might confuse - it confuses me. I prefer talking about 'firmware'. Firmware is stored in Read Only Memory (ROM) as a binary. It usually cannot be changed and it just meant to make the hardware work at all. The FSF says "Firmware that is installed during use is software; firmware that is delivered inside the device and can't be changed is software by nature, but we can treat it as if it were a circuit." This makes firmware closer, or even the same as, hardware. And while all hardware should have free designs, like Purism's, we don't have to reject non-free hardware the way we have to reject non-free software according to the FSF.
Do we need or want a channel from Gitlab to Matrix too?
Is this a Tracker <--> Matrix channel? We already have #dev/pureos-changes so you don't mean that channel I assume.

I've been informed that it is at least *theoretically* possible to point snapd to a only free "store" https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/external-repositories/1760/7
This might help us not have to remove snapd and then patch and maintain all the software that depends on snap and snapd.
Might be cool to put that documentation here: https://tracker.pureos.net/w/development/

@guido - have you seen this issue?
This should be fixed in later versions.

The idea of "shadowing" upstream or downstream as the case may be seems pretty useful though my brain is more accustomed to having the PureOS version of a package be higher.

AppStream is more for app meta-data while apt-file basically searches a directory of ASCII text to find specific files inside packages. I'm not sure if you could use AppStream as an apt-file replacement.

If this is an issue with Thunderbird, it should be filed upstream

Thanks Sebastian! Let's find another package @alvesadrian

The Original Poster is stating that their use case is customers at sea who have expensive connection charges which require they disable unnecessary network communication.
The user writes back saying that they disabled GNOME Software and was unable to stop automatic upgrades. There is no effect of the GNOME Software settings observed. I think the next step on my side is to run strace on GNOME Software and settings to see what is happening (or not happening).

It appears that one *cannot* shut off updates with GNOME Software despite the settings that would imply that this is possible. What needs to be address is apt-daily-upgrade.timer. systemctl status apt-daily-upgrade.timer says;
● apt-daily-upgrade.timer - Daily apt upgrade and clean activities Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apt-daily-upgrade.timer; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (waiting) since Fri 2020-12-11 10:07:48 EST; 2 weeks 5 days ago Trigger: Thu 2020-12-31 06:28:21 EST; 10h left Triggers: ● apt-daily-upgrade.service
This can be disabled which ought to turn off automatic updates. Stop the timer and disable this way;
sudo systemctl stop apt-daily-upgrade.timer sudo systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.timer

The plan that was devised consists of two steps;
@jonas.smedegaard Did a user report this? Or is this bug from your own sleuthing? :-) I ask because sometimes the FSF rewards users who report freedom issues with GNU Bucks and there may be some at stake for reporting.
Dec 22 2020
Glad you tracked down the issue! Nice sleuthing!

What does sudo apt-update && sudo apt install python-libxml2 say?
Let's pull tootle in from Debian. If there's a flatpak or package that we need in Debian then we should just default to using that.
Dec 18 2020
But the issue is not that you can't see it in the repos - just that it won't install on your machine, right?
No, please complete or report here if you are having issues.

Amber is Buster, yes.
This may be caught in a transition from python2.7 to python3 in Debian. python2.7 is approaching end of life and will be deprecated soon. I see that libxml2 is support with another library for python3;
python3-lxml - pythonic binding for the libxml2 and libxslt libraries
It may be that the chirp application has not yet updated their python dependencies.
@alvesadrian Have you started on this one yet?

I agree with Matthias here - having updates on by default brings security fixes quickly and is something that many folks now have come to expect. Much better to request that users opt out of secure default settings. This comports with Todd's stated policy of "smart defaults".
closing as a duplicate
Plan is to package as flatpak.

Ah, okay. That is a good catch, I've never seen that behavior before. I'll have to investigate and it may be a bug in GNOME-SOFTWARE, or, as you point out, it may be in the packaging.
Thanks for filing the bug. I'm not sure of the issue - can you install freecad via the command line?
Removing the contents of /var/lib/apt/lists removes out of date files. Re-running apt update brings in new Release file and one can download all packages again.
I can reproduce on the L13;
Cannot reproduce on my mini running byzantium.

@joao.azevedo I'll have to update and/or repackage youtube-dl ASAP.
