HulaHoop added a comment to T71: Show desktop clock in local time; keep system in UTC.

I think hiding the clock is a bad idea as a user may want to manually run sdwdate to adjust it if it's out of whack before initiating internet traffic. (This is on non-Qubes versions lacking auto time adjust)

Algernon added a comment to T876: remove browser starter in xfce task bar.

Possible. However, sharing as much code as sensible inside whonix-xfce-desktop-config and use whonix-(gw|ws)-kde-desktop-conf only where required would be preferably.

Patrick added a comment to T876: remove browser starter in xfce task bar.

Seems like a lot effort just to implement this.

Indeed.

Let's add this file to whonix-gw-kde-desktop-conf?

Then you need to remove it from the whonix-xfce-desktop-config and create a new package with the right xml file just for the workstation.

Algernon added a comment to T876: remove browser starter in xfce task bar.

I guess the only solution would be two separate packages of the desktop config for the gateway and the workstation. Maybe also some kind of postinst script which detects when it is run on the gateway and changes the xml. However, such a starter is also present on a default Xfce installation without a browser so it is more or less default behaviour.

marmarek added a comment to T534: make sdwdate-gui Qubes friendly (sdwdate-gui-qubes).

The easiest way would be to have a new entry for qubesdb-read, in addition to qubes-gateway which holds the IP address.
Something like qubesdb-read /qubes-gateway-name.

For the time being, the vm's whonix gateway is hard coded in two files, the one watching and sending sdwdate satus and the one sending the shutdown notification.

Patrick added a comment to T534: make sdwdate-gui Qubes friendly (sdwdate-gui-qubes).

What happens in case of multiple Whonix-Gateway ProxyVMs? I.e. in case of sys-whonix, sys-whonix-two, etc.? How would anon-whonix-two know it has to connect to sys-whonix-two?

The name is confusing I agree.
But it actually does disallow metadata network access.

Answering the meta questions here for me was not so clever this it created these references. Not a big deal either. However, better to have a development forum thread.
