Major clean up done.

At the moment the electrum version from Debian stable (currently: jessie) is too old to even work. The one from jessie-backports should still work?

deprecated anon-shared-build-fix-grub - no longer required

no need to replace ip's in /etc/network/interfaces.whonix - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T347:
use /etc/network/interfaces.d instead of /etc/network/interfaces - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T347:
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

I am currently trying to get rid of this hack:

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

Checking this again when the next test release has been created.
deactivated most code, testing to deprecate anon-shared-build-fix-grub package - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T340:
clean up /boot/grub/device.map because the anon-shared-build-fix-grub package can be deprecated - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T340:

Install Icedove (Thunderbird) + TorBirdy + Enigmail, added icedove, enigmail and xul-ext-torbirdy to anon-workstation-packages-recommended - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T113:

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.
Is this not desirable in the medium- or long-term though?
I took another look at reportbugs vs reportbugs-ng and I think the gui tool is actually more awkward to use than the text-based tool. I don't think it should be included anymore.
I researched ReportBug some more. It seems to be a form asking for specific things to be filled out about a bug and then its sent via sendmail to Debian servers. Nothing besides whats filled out is sent.

Tails uses WhisperBack.

You meanopen icedove see some link click the link opens the link in Tor Browser
- open icedove
- see some link
- click the link
- opens the link in Tor Browser
If you decided to integrate Icedove in Whonix can you please set it to open links in messages from Tor Browser?

Fixed "vga=ext is deprecated. Use set gfxpayload=text before linux command instead". Upgraded for grub2 / Debian jessie.:

Also 'confirm before sending', 'Always' should stay recommended for serious usage.
I am not happy with documentation yet.
I'm happy with the documentation. You can close this if you want.

Something useful came up.

systemd unit: added 'Before=graphical.target' and 'Before=getty.target' - https://phabricator.whonix.org/T106:

Done, tested and functional in Whonix 188.8.131.52.0-developers-only.
Fixed in Whonix 184.108.40.206.0-developers-only.
It's a different category of tool. More like in the category as grml-debootstrap. A handy tool for sysadmins. Not so much for distributions. Not for install scripts after the system has already been installed.
FAI is a flexible framework for unattended Debian installs but can be used for much more including automatic package installs. Its a decade old and robust, used for massive Debian deployments. Each feature can be used alone.
