No plan to include in source "tarbal" yet.
It will be updated on non-regular basis. Last was 3 days ago.

This functionality looks experimental and there is indication that will be changed. At least communication with device.
Also code (written in 2019!) uses outdated crypto interface (API) for signature operations.

Another point is lack of use of attestation certificate - so there is now way servers to forbid some devices :(.
