After discussing this topic in the Cloud team meeting today, I decided
to dig a bit. I got blocked pretty soon, as Huawei does not want to
sell their cloud stuff to people in most parts of the world. The list
of countries it wants to sell to consists of parts of Asia, Africa and
Notably, the list does not contain a single country of Europe, nor the
USA or Canada. However thats where the Debian trusted orgs are located
I'll keep digging, what this really means.
There are always alternatives.
