SOLVED Can Chromium re-enter the testing repo for Bullesyse

#1 Post by soaringowl2145 »

The chromium package has been removed from the testing repo. Since the freeze for Bullseye has already begun does that mean it will not be available in Bullseye when it is deemed stable?

I don't know for sure but I suspect it has been removed because Google has decided to stop Chromium from accessing their APIs for the sync features:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=982062

The soft freeze doesn't start until 2021-02-12 but after that packages cannot be re-added to testing once they have been removed.

It is also listed for bullseye: https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/chromium
but it is not in the repository. Weird.

^ Looks like it's been re-added. Just in time.
