OAuth2 was Re: google sheets - anybody doing anything besides mergGoogle

I had thought the problem at that time was that your app was using 
Google's older auth method, before they switched to OAth2.

The Oath2 lib is in LC's Github repository:

So now I'm confused: is OAuth2 not working in LC 9.x?

I'm also confused about "near silence" - Mark Waddingham has posted here 
three times this month, and it's only the 10th.  He's even posted in the 
forums more frequently lately than I'm used to seeing.

As for the breakpoints crasher, I'd thought that was addressed in v9.1, no?

Merg had not been updated to reflect and prepare the the change so caused it to catastrophically breakdown on the very day (by coincidence) that it was needed for a live broadcast recording. Monte was able to fix it but too late for my clients or my mental well-being.

I’m just as worried about using LC as it is falling behind on so many OS requirements and issues and fixes are just not pulling through quick enough for practical customer reliability. 
> There is near silence from LC in the last number of months. Worrying indeed. I’m guessing uptake for LC4FM is as low as I had predicted it would be, especially based on the forum discussions. Considering the number of issues I would predict new users to have there are practically no comments made at all. Or maybe they have been able to get into it with no issues at all because it is so perfectly coded ;).
