Port tails-persistence-setup to Gtk3
In the next years, Gtk2 will see less and less maintenance, and more and more breakage. Some initial porting work was done already in the
feature/gtk3 branch in the persistence-setup Git repository. It depends on the branch with the same name in the Tails-Perl5lib repository.

- % Done changed from 0 to 10
Merged current master into feature/gtk3, and finished the first part of the porting work: the test suite now entirely passes. Note that it depends on the feature/gtk3 branch of our perl5lib. Now needs to be tested live in a Tails/Wheezy image.
If anyone wants to take it from here, it could be a great way to dive into the persistence-setup code and get up to speed for more involved missions in this area.
#3 Updated by intrigeri almost 6 years ago
- Type of work changed from Test to Code
Intri said the next step is to test, changing type of work accordingly :)
I beg to disagree. Sure, the next thing to do is to test, but to do that one needs to build 2 Debian packages from a custom branch, and install it into a custom ISO. I doubt anyone who is not interested into fixing the bugs the tests will detect can do that efficiently. IMHO, the kind of test work that is needed belongs more to a usual programming process (write code, test, go back to writing code) than to the kind of work we usually point our testers at. To sum up, on that one, I'd rather the "Type of work" field indicate the kind of skills needed to do the task.
