Protonvpn-cli: switch to protonvpn-cli-ng
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Since this commit from two days ago, the version of protonvpn-cli we are shipping is discontinued.
Users are encouraged to switch to protonvpn-cli-ng, a new version of protonvpn-cli.

As you can notice, the repo name has changed and the usage of the script changed.

So here are the questions:
1/ Should we switch to this new version?
2/ If we do, should we transparently switch to the new repo or should we create a new package?
3/ Should we broadcast some kind of message, for example via the forum, to warn users about the switch?

Here is my mind:
1/ We should switch to this new version because the other one will not be maintained anymore.
2/ The best should be to have the two packages in the repo for some time, then remove the older protonvpn-cli.
3/ There should be a post in the forum to explain to users how to switch to the new version.

What are your mind on it?

  1. Yes.
  2. Same repo. Two is needlessly confusing.
  3. This is what Changelogs are for.

Thanks. I'll send patches in a few moment.

This version needs python-pythondialog to get accepted. See T8512
