I actually picked most of the patches from ungoogled-chromium (which
includes inox and iridium), but skipped "high maintenance" ones. This
started as an attempt to package that very project, but they were
lagging too far behind upstream IMO.

FSDG problems is the reason I haven't advertised it. At the very least,
the Google integrations should be disabled and analytics removed (but
Chromium can't currently build without either). I think if most of the
"FIXMEs" are resolved upstream, it might be eligible for a free distro.

Now that the cat is out of the box, feel free to send patches somewhere
and I'll incorporate them in the branch :-)
