Description

As read in my sources.list, it seems Tails still uses v2 onion services to serve the Debian repos. It sure would be nice to upgrade to v3 onions for better security. I couldn't find a related issue so here's one.

Also, have you considered running the Tails repos as single onion services ? Skipping the onion routing on the server side would make more bandwidth available. I feel like the repos were super slow from over here, but maybe it's just my connection? https://blog.torproject.org/whats-new-tor-0298

Yes, this would be sweet. Let's do this once Buster is out with a tor client that supports v3 (relevant for people who use our repos outside of Tails).

Support for HS v3 is now widespread enough so we could this whenever we see fit.
