Hello Luke,

I'm replying _only_ about the DRM issue you reported

please consider there is an opened bug for this issue:

for specific issues about DRM in Guix ungoogled-chromium package please
comment that bug including address@hidden least until is still open :-)

I'm not including address@hidden because IMHO all your concerns
are well addressed in the bug report thread

For DRM to work, the user has to build with "enable_widevine=true", and
then somehow obtain '' and make the browser use it.

this means that DRM *is* disabled at compile time and _also_ that is not included in Guix ungoogled-chromium source
