Description

As a side effect of chromium issues, the electron package was blacklisted. This broken the atom package. Thus, apm package become useless.

I think that the apm package must be blacklisted too.

Thanks. It doesn't help that apm doesn't list atom as a dependency.
About how broken is apm now? It may be OK to keep it if there's any other use for it; after all it installs without atom.

it may be useless, but it does not itself depend or recommend anything non-free (not even the atom editor); so there no imperative to remove it either
