flatpak-xdg-utils: xdg-open and xdg-email reimplementation for containerized apps

 Applications running in a Flatpak sandbox cannot normally launch arbitrary
 subprocesses outside the container to open files and URLs. This
 package provides reimplementations of the standard xdg-open(1) and
 xdg-email(1) command-line tools intended to be run inside the container.
 They use the D-Bus session bus to communicate with the xdg-desktop-portal
 service outside the container.
 To avoid conflicting with the standard xdg-utils package, these tools
 are installed in /usr/libexec/flatpak-xdg-utils. This directory can be
 added to the PATH when preparing a container, or used as a target for
 container-specific symbolic links in /usr/bin.
 This package also contains flatpak-spawn, which can be used by Flatpak
 applications to launch processes outside the container. Unprivileged
 applications can use this mechanism to launch a helper tool such as a
 thumbnailer in a version of their sandbox with more restrictive
 permissions, and specially-privileged applications with the 'devel' flag
 (such as GNOME Builder) can use this mechanism to bypass the sandbox and
 run commands on the host system.
 This package is normally only useful if you are using Debian packages to
 construct a Flatpak runtime or a similar container, and should not be
 installed on a normal Debian desktop system. On desktop systems please
 install the reference implementation of the xdg-open and xdg-email tools,
 which can be found in the xdg-utils package.
 If this package is installed in a non-Flatpak environment for testing,
 it will require the dbus-session-bus and xdg-desktop-portal packages
 (which would not be useful to install in a container).

 flatpak-xdg-utils provides reimplementations of the standard xdg-open(1)
 and xdg-email(1) command-line tools intended to be run inside a Flatpak
 container. They use the D-Bus session bus to communicate with the
 xdg-desktop-portal service outside the container
 This package contains as-installed tests, for use with autopkgtest and
 similar frameworks. They use a mock implementation of xdg-desktop-portal.
