Ubuntu Touch Q&A 66 is this Saturday the 28th of December at 19:00 UTC. Please join us for Ubuntu Touch development, updates and answers to your questions! Post them here before the event and Youtube Livechat https://youtu.be/ZGdCR54yETo and Telegram during the live show.
Please remember that questions on porting to device **** or it's status, and questions on bugs will not be answered
Any fosdem plans? The list of stands is out, but no UT:(
What about the UPDATE of the User-Agent Chromium Version ? the current out-of-date version limits the proper functioning of some sites (github...) on UT phones. Thank you for not wanting to consider this as a bug question, but as an question related to the proper functioning of mobile internet.
Any plan for a Ubports "gnome flavour" in ner (or far) future? Pure OS project could make this somehow easier ...
How's the progress on the HTC 10? Also, is there a way to track the progress off the newly ported devices (OnePlus 3/3T, Sony Xperia, LG V20, etc..)? Postmarket OS has a nice example of what I mean: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Devices

@domubpkm Simply changing the User-Agent won't necessarily fix things, and reporting that it's a newer version of chromium than it actually is might just make more things break. To get it updated, the qtwebengine package needs updated to the newer version, and it was being worked on, but there were some issues with building it as I understand.
Is there like an overview (like a road map?) of what features each team is working on? Of course this would be flexible, but just a sketch so people can see what projects they might be able to contribute to that are active? I see listing of groups on here and I'm sure you could look maybe at what's active on Github on development (?) but I guess I was wondering if there is one unified place that organizes a display of all that's going on at once?

And perhaps UBports could "publish a roadmap, or at least a rough outline of a roadmap, discussing your goals, when you hope to achieve them, and if applicable, what outside resources (beyond money) would be helpful in achieving your goals." (Emphasis added.)
For example, given that a "transition from 16.04 to 20.04 will necessitate replacing upstart with systemd," and given that "UBports could use some help with such a project," perhaps UBports could announce "a call-out requesting help from those in the Linux community having expertise with systemd."
QUESTION: Given that there will soon an influx of PinePhone users who want to run UT on their shiny new Linux phones, after OTA-12 has been released, will UBports focus like a laser on PinePhone development for a few months (again, after OTA-12 has been released) in preparation for the PinePhone release?
Related to GizmoCicken's questions. The roll out of the first end-user version of pine phone in March will likely create a high demand for UBTouch and bring in new users which is great for the project. These new users will, however, also require resources and attention e.g. download server capacities for the store, attention in the forum etc.. Does UbPorts foresee any capacity shortages (IT infrastructure as well as man-power) to handle these requests (I remember having read a post form Jan asking for assistance with server resilience issues) ? Sounds like a luxury problem but are we at risk of becoming a possible victim of our success ?
Any advice for users who want/need to run an "up-to-date" webbrowser would be very very helpful.
I tried Brave thru Anbox => does not load any webpage
Firefox thru Libertine => runs, but no touch support and sizing issues (not responsive).
I am aware of the compiling troubles of Morph browser, and the question of @domubpkm,
wondering how postmarketOS/KDE solves the browser issues.
