HulaHoop added a comment.@IronSoldier my comment was vague and I don't want to digress from the thread topic. Its been mentioned in security circles that the XMPP library libpurple which Pidgin and other opensource IM programs are based is full of 0days - many remotely exploitable. Our best bet is gajim or Adam Langley's xmpp-client once a gui is written for it (written in type safe languages)

Patrick (Patrick Schleizer):
Very likely (depending on how DispVMs will be implemented in future), this feature is required to have Qubes-Whonix-Workstation based DispVMs start with up to date versions of Tor Browser.

I think one workaround to bridge short-term & long-term may be to have the App Menu listing just be a shortcut to a terminal that runs apt-get update && apt-get upgrade (or yum update).
Honestly I think this issue has ballooned into a bunch of different (but related) issues.

Sorry the context is Whonix in Qubes, no? In which case it is a very
similar context to Tails.

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.
Is this not desirable in the medium- or long-term though?
