There's a lot that should be improved when it comes to the entire Electron ecosystem. It's a concern that the maintenance of these applications falls mostly on distribution packagers, seeing as some upstream Electron apps won't accept bug reports from users with "modified" apps.
Never mind bug reports, half the time they won't accept patches! I've had quite few PRs that tried to fix build issues rejected because "your issue wouldn't even be a problem if you built it our bundled way".
Sure does. Glad to read about your process, and especially that you use your own packages.
Most of them. A handful I don't any more at all besides having them on a machine, a few my usage is intermittent, but yes for the most part the things I package are things I actually care about. As a rule I don't use *any* software if it can't be installed an managed as a system package. I have everything from long running machines (Arch boxes updated for > 10 years) to many ephemeral virtual systems. I can't mess around with installing software manually and then either not being able to match it elsewhere or forgetting what I did or having it leave crud around on my system.
Guilty, m'lud. To the gallows with me!
Your punishment should you choose to accept: use only emacs for the next <M-d> days.
