PPPC woes on Catalina (fr.whitebox.Packages)

Ever since Catalina, I am unable to build packages with this app if using certain directories.. /var/tmp, /Library/LaunchDaemons, etc.

Is there something I am missing in the PPPC Profile? Composer works just fine without complaints.. Maybe cp needs access to all folders, or terminal?

I am an admin user and can create files in /Library/LaunchDaemons without needing authentication, so I am genuinely lost.

If anyone else experiences this..
You have to grant full disk access to /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/fr.whitebox.packages/packages_dispatcher and /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/fr.whitebox.packages/packages_builder

Annoying right??

Interesting, I use Whitebox Packages all the time.

I see Packages.app and packages_dispatcher in the Full Disk Access list, but I don't see packages_builder.

Posted a link to this thread on Stéphane Sudre's GitHub repo, though not sure if he is monitoring it, especially as 1.2.9 has been out a while and his repo only shows 1.2.8...I'll send him an email too.

Guessing it would be a good idea to add a page to his site, regarding whitelisting Packages.
