I now have a build that connects reasonably reliably, using this line:

./ --with-gdrive-client-secret="GYWrDtzyZQZ0_g5YoBCC6F0I"

That's the TDF secret. I want to write a blog post saying how I did
this - before I do so, will there be a problem putting it up with that
secret (which is presumably the one in every TDF build)? Should I use
another one? If so, how do I obtain another one?

(also, will this stop working when Google stops doing OAuth2?)

- d.
