Hello, is it just me or is the DocuSign app unavailable?

Why DocuSign?
This announcement is about

Yes, but the announcement for v22 said there are going to be 3 integrations: “Getting your document signatures easy with integrated PDF signing with DocuSign, EIDEasy, and LibreSign”

Though I really like what eID Easy does, it’s a product offering different functionality - making both perfect for working together on the same nextcloud.

Sadly I was completely unable to find any documentation for the other promised integration for v22 - that’s why I asked.

It’s integrated in the approval app. Not the most logical thing, I agree, we have to split this off.
