This is fun: #Manjaro make sure that there's more change in their build of #Phosh 0.20 for #PinePhone/#PinePhonePro by shipping unmerged Feature Merge Requests (that are known to land after 0.20) and then make a video about "radical change" in that release: https://botsin.space/@manjarolinux/108570528095608067
@linmob Manjaro really needs to do better with this and make it clear that their builds are previews with features people can play around with if they want to that may not ship or may ship differently. It's like they didn't learn from a few weeks ago when they decided shipping GNOME Mobile prototypes by using (I think?) Caleb's scripts to make things work without credit was a good idea. At least, this is how I understand everything, so hopefully I'm not too off on this.
@DrewNaylor I've got the feeling that they don't think that what they are doing is problematic in any way.
It's noteworthy for context that this is (for now) just their dev-build.

It is not the first time this happens and then users are confused about bugs. Sometimes these bugs are known because it is unfinished work. In other cases, it can come from integrating random patches on top of releases. Now it is shipped in the form of a developer release which is advertised as 'look we have a new release'. If you want to test experimental stuff to give feedback upstream, consider to keep it in dev circles instead of social media.
@joao That's nice :)
