We've been listening to feedback that there are too many password prompts in the on-device installer and that the dedicated user is confusing.

New workflow:
* sshd always disabled
* confusing prompts removed

Shout out to @mobian who is also using the on-device installer, contributed quite a few cool things and always had the dedicated SSH user dialog disabled 👋

Librem 5 USA is shipping! "The smart phone retains the software security and privacy features of the Librem 5 while adding a transparent, secure supply chain with manufacturing in the USA.”

A new charging UI may land to postmarketOS soon, with improved graphics and fewer graphical dependencies, making it suitable for virtually any framebuffer-enabled device. It is not known if and when this will be merged

I've tagged another git snapshot of #feedbackd with a bunch of fixes.

Here's the list of changes:

#feedbackd is used by #phosh, #calls and others to provide haptic, audio and led feedback.
