How much work is that?

Any ETA?

@Patrick

Shouldn't take very much at all.

When do you need it done by?

I will adjust this priority to your expected release date needs for
signing the final initial package version.

Good question. I don't really know for sure.

Is this change important enough to be included in Whonix 10 stable release? Currently I am preparing a testers-only release of 10.0.0.5.0.

Every additional testers-only release generates a lot work on my side.

  • painfully merge git submodules into the Whonix 10 branch
  • tag the updated package
  • tag a new release
  • build, test new images
  • compress images which feels like taking hours
  • upload new images which takes hours
  • update Whonix News files with new blessed version numbers
  • update APT repository
  • write a blog post, call for another round of testing
  • and make sure, I don't mess up anything along that way

Also depends on how many issues are reported against 10.0.0.5.0. If another testers-only round is required, then the effort is better justified.

If Whonix 11 is early enough, than any time before Whonix 11 would work.

Otherwise I guess one or two weeks for giving users time to test 10.0.0.5.0 before proceeding further, so I can merge it before then, before the next testers-only release [that may be blessed stable after testing].

I'm all finished now. Didn't require much at all.

I just removed the excess unused JavaScript stuff and added the
licensing comments.

These changes are not critical to me. You can include it to whatever
version you please, now, later, whenever. I don't mind.

Thanks! Merged. Suffices for Whonix 11.
