Excerpts from Jerome Leclanche via arch-dev-public's message of January 26, 2021 21:04:
> It sounds to me like Google doesn't want Chromium to have the full
> functionality anymore; and it kind of sounds like they want Chromium
> to die and Chrome to be the one-and-only.
> What we want to do in response to this is IMO not just a legal
> question but also a moral one. I see from the email threads that
> several other distros have the same issue.
> My recommendation: Drop Chromium from the repositories. Give zero
> official support for Chrome or Chromium. Announce it very loudly on
> archlinux.org, as soon as possible. Encourage other distributions to
> follow suit with the exact same action.
> If we make a bit of noise, Google may end up backtracking, but if they
> don't at least users will know what happened.
