@gnome we should talk.
Gnome's Online Accounts use same API google give to 3rd parties to integrate their products with Google. And Google is pushing limits on APIs to make users of those APIs to pay more. So, some users of Gnome desktops that use Gnome Online Account's integration with Google can suffer until the limit issue is resolved.
AFAIK Gnome does not use Google technologies at Foundation level. You can read more https://mail.gnome.org/archives/infrastructure-announce/2014-October/msg00001.htmlabout that
@codeberg @gnome are you sure they dont talk about this? https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeOnlineAccounts
I'm not aware of any hosted gnome accounts. To my knowledge Gnome Online Accounts only refer to the piece of software that is part of the Gnome Desktop. It lets you add accounts like imap, MS Exchange, Nextcloud, Google and others to your Desktop for e-mail and cloudsync. Looks like people are having trouble adding their Google accounts, due to some API restriction changed by Google.
