in case you missed the thread on devel about systemd-oomd, the

If I understand this correctly, we'll have to ensure that systemd-oomd
is disabled in the i3 spin, as it will simply kill the whole desktop if
anything starts consuming too much memory. Unless anyone has an idea how
to put every application that is launched from i3 into a cgroup in the
same way that gnome shell already does that? The later would be of
course preferable, as having apps in cgroups has a lot of advantages,
but I don't know how feasible it is for us to achieve this.
I opened an issue upstream for this feature request, since I couldn't
find anything about cgroups in the issue tracker:
Any SIG members can weigh in there too if there is helpful context I
missed. Admittedly I have not studied the systemd-oomd change in detail.
Cheers & happy holidays,
Wishing you a great year-end and a hopeful year ahead. :-)
