Currently we build telegram with API_TEST creds and it may limit connectivity to telegram API servers for users.
Users also have a way to override the API at build time, but this is not great UX.
debian has their own creds publushed here
our chromium ebuilds also contains similar api key for google services.
I've sent an email to telegram API guys and requested our DISTRO API creds.
for obvious reasons I do not wish to attach api creds to my personal telegram account.
after some research and chatting with other maintainers and contributors it seems it's impossible to obtain distro-specific creds.
but we can use same creds telegram uses to build snaps
will switch to that (but will still leave specifying custom ID possible)
