Ubuntu dev needed, to sponsor BPO for librem-key support

Hi there,

Support for using the Librem Key for 2FA and password-management has been available via nitrokey-app for a while[1] now.

However, it took some time for this to propagate to OS distros. By now it is already available in Debian testing (bookworm), which is being used for next releases of derivatives like PureOS (already included in Byzantium) and Ubuntu.

Right now, what is missing in order to be able to use the key on work-laptops etc, is inclusion in backport channels of LTS releases…

I have opened an issue[2] for including this in the latest Ubuntu LTS (Focal), but in order to push this forwards we need an Ubuntu developer to take sponsorship of this.

Anyone here with appropriate permissions and interested in taking that?
