QtWebengine does not handle DRM at all. That is handled by a 3rd party
plugin called wildevine and would require guix to bundle that plugin.
Something I'm confident is not going to happen. As an added measure my
proposed qtwebengine declaration has pepper plugins disabled making it
impossible to load 3rd party plugins either way.

for reference

In regards to QtWebEngine phoning home
states all google services have been removed. Nothing I've seen
indicates this is not the case.

In terms of patches. You can get a complete diff of chromium sources
by cloning qtwebengine recursively like so.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
git clone --recursive
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Version 5.12.6 of qtwebengine is based on chromium sources 69.0.3497.128
to get a complete diff you can do this from the src/3rdpath directory.
you can then get a complete patch diff for version 5.12.6 like so.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
git diff origin/upstream-master origin/69-based
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
