marmarek added a comment to T347: use /etc/network/interfaces.d instead of /etc/network/interfaces.

Currently Qubes configures interfaces manually from udev rule. Actually
I think it would be better to move it to some more standard place, for
example to not conflict with NetworkManager (which is currently handled
as a special case) or other network-related tools.
Or at least move it out of udev rule, which is called in quite
unpredictable time (->race conditions). I think it may somehow related

Patrick added a comment to T375: Include Debian ReportBug GUI?.

What I don't like about WhisperBack alike approaches is, that it leads to more secrecy behind closed doors. Everyone thinks their report need secrecy, is special and should be sent by encrypted mail to Whonix developers where they get private, premium support for free. Encourages laziness of just pressing the button. Less searching for existing discussions. Less incentive to sign up for the forums and user to user exchange.

We are not going to be running our own anonymous bug reporting infrastructure like TAILS does with WhisperBack. That would be very demanding and need many things to make sure its done right.

Improved implementation. When there is enough RAM... On 'enter': instantly start login manager. On 'ctrl + c': instantly abort and do not start login manager. On 'timeout': start login manager. Thanks to 'dh_systemd_start --no-start' we can now use 'StandardInput=tty' and 'read' instead of 'systemd-ask-password'.

Tor upstream plans it, its not something I'm suggesting we should do. All I said was we should include bridge support in gw so we can take advantage of features like this when they become ready.

Long term we should have the pluggable transports chaining framework in Whonix so transports can be combined in interesting ways.

Yes it should be installed especially if we want Whonix to be useful for people behind firewalls.

Judging by the system man pages that do not use spaces and info from a systemd contributor on systemd IRC, no spaces should be used.

I guess just not using spaces would be the way to go. I used to not use spaces, but then added them as it seems like that should be supported and works with systemd, just not the deb-systemd-helper

That's a nasty upstream bug for deb-systemd-helper. You would have thought that would have been fixed for Jessie stable release. Do you know if there is a reported issue on it upstream?
