Might be nice to hear more details about what privacy related customizations are applied in mobile-config-firefox in a future episode. I know I can just check in git but might be an interesting topic for the broader audience.

With the recent UX improvements in osk-sdl being mentioned once more in the third episode of the , kudos should also go to @alexeymin for helping to review and test the changes and most importantly @craftyguy for dealing with the various bugs I snuck in along the way. πŸ™ˆ

Dear people too embarrassed to release your source code:

Nobody cares how ugly it is. Only you can see the ugliness. The code works, it does something, and we just want to learn from it or modify it. Our source code is ugly too.

If embarrassment is the only obstacle, just release the code. Ugly released source code is far, far better than no source code at all.

Really enjoyed the first !
