Description

I see in Tails 3.9 the following bookmarks embedded in Tails:

Now that we have good support for bookmarks in Persistence, I think we should review this list.

  • I don't think it should be a place to link the email providers our team historically liked the most.
  • I don't think that the Tor stack exchange is an official support channel anymore.

We'd be left with:

Going a bit futher:

  • Searching for "Tails" or "Tor Project" in the URL bar points you to https://tails.boum.org/ and https://www.torproject.org/. I think that's what the majority of our users will do instead of looking for it in the bookmark menu.
  • Our documentation is already linked from the desktop and the Applications menu.

So if we want, I don't think we would miss much by getting rid of this file completely. It's a SQL dump that seems painful to maintain, so that might be a good move.

I doubt someone else than you will lead this discussion within the time constraints (target version) you've set.

"I don't think it should be a place to link the email providers our team historically liked the most." (sorry, tried the Quote button, it gave me an error)

Agreed.

OTOH, this would be another great place to link about/for donations! _

+1, if we keep the custom bookmarks we could add one to our donation page.

On the other hand, we're providing people using Tails other much better
pointers to our donation page (eg. /home) so I don't think it will make
a significant difference. So I would definitely not keep this
customization just for that :)

With the deprecation of monthly meetings, we're left with mailing lists for such discussions. I raised the point on tails-dev.

Nobody followed up on my question to tails-dev:

So I'll submit a branch at some point.
