Description Georgy Yakovlev archtester gentoo-dev 2020-01-26 05:06:34 UTC
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

https://salsa.debian.org/debian/telegram-desktop/blob/debian/master/debian/rules#L23


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

https://github.com/telegramdesktop/tdesktop/blob/dev/snap/snapcraft.yaml

will switch to that (but will still leave specifying custom ID possible)
