Disable LAN access in Tor Browser, delegate to Unsafe Browser?

We agreed on moving LAN browsing from outside Tor Browser. Now we need to decide whether we want it to be included in the Unsafe Browser or have a dedicated browser. We considered one of the following options:

  • Unsafe Browser including LAN
  • Unsafe Browser and separate LAN Browser

That's a UX decision basically, so sajolida will raise the issue on tails-ux@boum.org.

The proposed solution will help deciding something with respect to #7774 as well. Either maybe "Non-anonymous Browser" if the two features are combined in one browser, or "Captive Portal Browser" and "LAN Browser" if the two browsers are separate. But those names would have to be refined.

Roadmap amendments proposal

We added those tickets to our roadmap:

Migrate master Git repository to immerda

The only real advantage of moving our master Git repository to immerda would be to have more control on who has commit permissions. But we do that only on very rare occasions. We couldn't find any good reason to do this work so we rejected this ticket.

Have an easy way to use or discover OpenPGP Applet from Iceweasel

We considered this as a low priority but interesting UX issue. People willing to design and propose a new UI for that should make sure that they understand the security implications as well as the amount of additional technical work of their solution.

Replace default desktop background with another

We agreed on trying to reduce the brightness and saturation of the current background to be less hurting to the eyes. While keeping the same blue color.

Use more discreet Pidgin tray icons in Windows camouflage mode and Remove Pidgin systray icon in Windows 8 camouflage

We considered those as no real issues. The camouflage mode tries to avoid being spotted as Tails by someone passing by but it can't be a 100% perfect imitation of Windows. So we decided to reject both tickets.
