Most of Debian's repository is available. There are packages that apt won't find, which need to be cross compiled ("ported") to ARM64 (see [https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port Debian's wiki on ARM64 port]), but the process is fairly easy. Most developers package their software for the AMD64 version of Debian, so they will throw an error when run; if you have the source code, you can compile it to run on ARM64/PinePhone. If you do so, you should contact the developers so they can provide precompiled ARM64 packages for others in the future. You should also contact Debian if you have working ARM64 packages not listed on [https://wiki.debian.org/Arm64Port this page], since this helps them track the status of ARM64 with Debian. Give their wiki page some TLC.

'''Apps that don't work with Wayland''': if you encounter an app that only works with X11 and not Wayland, report it upstream to the app's developers.

* ''' Where/how to report defects '''
It is recommended that you log your bug reports in [https://gitlab.com/a-wai/debos-pinephone/issues/ the project's issue tracker.] As a general rule, issues with third-party apps (even the default ones) should be reported upstream. A Debian-PinePhone issue would be related to getting the hardware to work on the PinePhone, but if unsure where the issue should be reported just open a ticket or ask.
