Upgrade to Stretch 9.1 in Tails 3.1
Usually we don't update to Debian stable point-releases in a Tails point-release, but a Debian r1 (first point-release after the initial stable release) generally brings tons of bugfixes that we might want. The RM for 3.1 (bertagaz) agreed to consider pulling these fixes.
Here's what it will include:
Let's set up a branch with stretch-proposed-updates enabled, so we can evaluate the impact.
Bump APT snapshots for the Debian and Tor archives to 2017072302, i.e. upgrade to the Stretch 9.1 point-release (refs: #13178).

So far the diff (
for ext in build-manifest packages ; do echo "### $ext" ; diff -Naur <(curl -s https://nightly.tails.boum.org/build_Tails_ISO_stable/lastSuccessful/archive/latest.iso.$ext) <(curl -s https://nightly.tails.boum.org/build_Tails_ISO_feature-13178-stretch-9.1/lastSuccessful/archive/latest.iso.$ext) ; done) looks like something we totally want, but of course let's reconsider closer in a few weeks.

The first point release for "stretch" (9.1) is scheduled for Saturday, July 22nd. Processing of new uploads into stretch-proposed-updates will be frozen during the preceding weekend.
… so the current state of stretch-p-u should now be what'll become Stretch 9.1. I'll wait until the actual release though before rebasing the topic branch on top of stable, with bumped APT snapshots (and without stretch-p-u).
The packages / build-manifest diff still looks good, and #12543#note-28 feels like a strong additional reason to take r1. I've had a look at test suite results on Jenkins and I didn't spot obvious regressions. So I'm now quite convinced we should take r1 in Tails 3.1.

Stretch 9.1 is out. https://jenkins.tails.boum.org/job/build_Tails_ISO_devel/2470/ will be the first build of devel that uses it. I'll check how it goes and will update the topic branch (with a set of bumped, frozen APT snapshots) if happy.

Looks good, merged for 3.1!
Great. I've handled the merge into devel once again (you forgot to do it for most of the merges you did recently, please get used to doing it otherwise devel lacks stuff that's in stable, which can be very confusing).
I've made it so the time-based APT snapshots used for 3.0.1 will expire on August 21 (instead of some time in December previously), so that some storage space is reclaimed there ASAP.
