    Question Trusting home repo

    I am majorly paranoid about trusting a home repo with system going south before now. I "need" to install acpi_call package to access ThinkPad only TLP features, which three home repos provide. I went with the top one home:derselbst but it install all this;
    Code:

    Hi
    That is way old code for Tumbleweed anyway... did you go to the source site?

    https://github.com/mkottman/acpi_call

    Code:
    This module is to be considered a proof-of-concept and has been superseeded by projects like bbswitch. It allows you to tamper with your system and should be used with caution.
    Installation of all that stuff would be correct back 5 years ago and building kernel modules...

    Just use bbswitch instead....
