Jacalz added a comment to R4664:85d2d40689d3: Update fprintd to 1.90.1, gdm and gnome lock screen integration works now.

No you are right, this really isn't the place to ask about that. Creating a new thread on discuss.getsol.us would have made more sense. But to answer your question, the users page doesn't support it as I haven't found any way to get the support in gnome-control-center to work. You can use the commandlines to set up finger print support and then it will work to log into Gnome, but basically nothing else at this point in time.

Jacalz added a comment to T8378: v.

Sorry, I haven't had the time to look at this until today.
Last time I looked at it I just couldn't get it to work and looking at it today with the quite recent release, I can't even get it to build. At the same time code written in vlang seems to break and needs to be changed to comply with new updates. I no longer have any interest in getting this added to the repository due to all the issues with it, I just don't have faith in it any more. I am sorry...

Jacalz added a comment to D8665: Update jack-audio-connection-kit to 1.9.14 (jack2).

I think I might have found the cause for the weird realtime behaviour. According to https://github.com/jackaudio/jackaudio.github.com/wiki/Cgroups, there might be issues for kernels with CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED enabled in the kernels (which we obviously have if looking at the linux-current and linux-lts configs). It should require a modification to /etc/cgconfig.conf, but we don't have any file in Solus. Anyone know where I can find the cgroup config file in Solus?

I am sorry. I should have phrased myself in a better way. I was merely trying to say that it more or less was another web wrapper using electron (yes, I was wrong about that though), but I guess a bad day and poor past experiences with pouring in way too much time into packaging electron apps (such as Atom and Etcher) had an impact and clouded my vision. I will give a bit more thought the next time I provide a comment on such heated topics...

This update fixes a security issue, so I would highly recommend that you add CVE-2020-11810 to the summary so eopkg can label this as a security fix.
I usually do it like the example below because I think it looks the best and is very clear with what is being fixed:
