Why does the flatpak seem to need access to ~/.ssh and ssh-agent socket

I used flatseal and looked at the capabilities of obsidian flatpak. It seems to want access to ssh-agent socket and also ~/.ssh. I’m not an expert in flatpak sandbox setup/permissions so maybe this is all innocent. BUT…

Can someone explain why this would be needed?

Many users use git to sync between their devices.
If one uses SSH authentication for that they need access to these.

In other posts there are always questions about the safety/security of plugins and even obsidian itself. For Linux/flatpak users, how about not enabling this as a default path, as default paths can’t be removed, and folks can use flatseal to add this permission back if they need it.

we don’t make the flatpack, it’s a community project. Contact them.
