<dustyweb>swedebugia: so is my understanding that the approach to the blacklist method is to say "ok we aren't going to bother fetching the trees of these packages"
<dustyweb>in theory because a "simpler" solution to them can be provided?
<swedebugia>dustyweb, exactly. It helps a lot but only for the devDependencies (devdeps). These are dependencies which are nice to have for the developer but VERY often not needed to build the package.
<baconicsynergy>I just checked out the packages list, and almost every package I needed is now available! All that's missing is GNU Ring and the Nextcloud client, but I'm sure Owncloud would work with my provider
<lprndn->rekado: Yeah, I didn't go further than you on network-manager. I shamelessly used your patch. Hum and looking back at what I did, it's mostly versions bump, switching to meson-build-system and adding or removing a few dependencies.
<lprndn->Up until gnome-control-center which has troubles with something related to panels@colors. My guess for now is to update colord.
<lprndn->and I think we need to build vala > 0.40 . 0.42.3 builds except a test in valadocs.
