Patrick added a comment to T533: iptables block network access until sdwdate succeeded.

I am not sure sdwdate-gui would be a strong enough notification if networking was actually blocked if sdwdate did not succeed yet.

@Patrick No biggie wrt the paid developer to implement. I like your idea on the Qubes GitHub ticket, of posting an article on the website. I'll email you separately, to coordinate on that. Said website post, I'd like to accomplish two things: one, solicit user input on any/all UX work. Two, put out the call for paid GUI dev work.

@Patrick I am currently working on a funding proposal, to get the UX work required to get production-ready handoffs to a developer, created.

@Patrick I am currently working on a funding proposal, to get the UX work required to get production-ready handoffs to a developer, created. The above was just a shared idea, to kickoff the conversation. My apologies for not being clear on that. I would like to work on a parallel proposal to get the development work done, to improve all of the Whonix GUI stuff; the time-sync widget menu, and the windows that enable deeper settings control.

Patrick lowered the priority of T963: Make Whonix GUI usable for high-risk non-technical Qubes users from Normal to Wishlist.

I am not a GUI developer at this point so please don't wait for me to implement this. sdwdate-gui is from a time when Whonix had a contributor doing GUI development.

What is a good way to detect that users are using VM kernel in Qubes? @marmarek If uname -r outputs 4.19.43-1.pvops.qubes.x86_64 i.e. matches *pvops* it means that no VM kernel is being used?

needrestart works good enough for it to be implemented as a test in whonixcheck (--verbose?).

Issue was discussed by Libvirt devs on RedHat bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1320263#c4
I even linked to a secure clipboard proposal that would have given a secure clipboard functionality by copying Qubes style interaction. It went no where and was closed as WONTFIX.
