I believe I'm pretty late with that one, but if you look for practicality over modern look, this is good to go

>> Google was pretty friendly and cooperative and told me the favicons are indeed the problem, and it can/should be fixed by updating in the privacy policy to "disclose how your app accesses, collects, uses, and shares user data. >> Given the huge number of supportive messages I received (much appreciated!) the project will be continued in some form in any case.

A break timer with short and long breaks?
Preferably one that is in the AUR or the official Arch Linux repository.

Why aren't non-reproducibly-built binaries of GPL-licensed software considered undistributable?

GitHub's ass
GitHub is not giving me way to init repo of TWRP. It's a public repository. Here's what it says: Downloading manifest from Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists. manifests: sleeping 4.0 seconds before retrying Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. I'm so fucking blessed. I tried forking it, but no luck at all, GitHub doesn't want to give me way even in my own profile. Thoughts about it?
