Sadly, or thankfully - depending on how you look at it ;) - the BUILDINFO

remaining packages are outside of [community].
All except for cinnamon-desktop and cjs, that is. *nudge @eschwartz*

Another Electron app? oof...
That one would have to be devendored first, anyways -
right now it is using a bundled Electron :(

Just curious - how does this differ to ecryptfs?
