Hmmm.. from the github.

Warning: The 0.x releases are not production ready packages. They serve for tech-preview and user feedback purposes only.

This probably means that breakage will be common.

Debian has a package for it: https://packages.debian.org/stretch/usbguard

pcr would be a good place for such package.

However in Debian, it seems that all the packages that only one package depends on usbguard (usbguard-applet-qt), and usbguard-applet-qt has the same homepage, So it's probably developed by the same people (so it's probably likely to be fixed in case of compatibility related breakage).

Isn't it better to package this instead?
https://github.com/NateBrune/silk-guardian

Personally I've tried both, the latter is much more useful and much much simpler... (even though I haven't used any for a while because of kernel USB driver issues on ARM).

silk-guardian is a kill switch and usb guard is not :/ Nice project though.

i would say, if the devs themselves are responsible enough to label it "not-ready" that is a good sign; but the package would be better to go to [pcr-testing] rather than [pcr] (or not to package it at all) until it is deemed "ready"
