#2 Updated by intrigeri 4 months ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress

Sorry, we should have sent you a heads up earlier!

I've pushed in initial draft in commit 421e15dd6d, so at the very least the doc in 4.1 does not claim we ship Torbirdy while we don't, even if you don't have time to work on this by Monday.
Feel free to revert my commit and restart from scratch if that's easier for you :)

No problem! It's good that I'm not always overworked :)

I pushed some more stuff in feature/17219-replace-torbirdy.

Please review d30ed49525 more specifically as I might have gotten some technicalities wrong.

@cbrownstein: If you have the time before Monday you could have a look, but given the short deadline and the amount of content at stake, I'm happy with intrigeri's technical review only.

Wow, thanks for the quick turnaround!

Please review d30ed49525 more specifically as I might have gotten some technicalities wrong.

Looks good except:

  • I believe "Removes information about the language of your session" is incorrect (AFAIK, by default Thunderbird leaks only the spellchecker language).
  • unsecure or insecure?

#5 Updated by cbrownstein 4 months ago

Looks good to me.

The only change I'd make is unsecureinsecure.

Insecure is more common in this context.

#6 Updated by sajolida 4 months ago

  • I believe "Removes information about the language of your session" is incorrect (AFAIK, by default Thunderbird leaks only the spellchecker language).

I was thinking about the "reply_header_type", like:

something that users write themselves either.

From config/chroot_local-includes/usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird.cfg,
language might also be leaking in GnuPG's default comment.

Oops, I didn't pay attention to my spellchecker on this one. Fixed in
c24a970cea.
