Mention I2P in "About" page
Our current "About" page does not mention I2P. It might be ok to not mention it on the homepage but it should be briefly introduces in the "Online anonymity" of the "About" page, as an alternative to Tor. Not everything goes through Tor, I2P does not.

We should try to rename that section as "Online anonymity and censorship circumvention", still mention Tor as the main and default option. But mention I2P as an alternative at the end.
I could be worth checking with the I2P homepage or kytv whether I2P can be called a tool to "circumvent censorship". I guess it definitely can in some way.

IMHO it could be classified as a tool to "circumvent censorship" though mostly in the same way that Tor's "hidden services" can.
I2P can also be used as an "exit" to the internet via volunteer-run "outproxies" but this functionality is disabled in Tails. I (in Tails' hook scripts) remove the default outproxies "false.i2p" and "outproxy-tor.meeh.i2p" from the tunnel configuration. An interested user could easily add these or any other outproxy to their tunnel configuration(s) if desired for whatever reason, but even without the outproxies I think the description "censorship circumvention" could be used.

- Status changed from Resolved to In Progress
- Assignee changed from intrigeri to sajolida
- % Done changed from 100 to 50
- Feature Branch changed from bitingbird:doc/6533-about_i2p to doc/6533-about_i2p
I've merged current master into the topic branch and added a few commits on top. Now, I'm wondering whether it's relevant to write "To learn more about I2P, see the official I2P website" on our "about" page: the previous sentence links to our I2P doc, that itself links to the I2P website. Shall we just drop that sentence?

- Target version changed from Tails_1.3 to Tails_1.3.2
I think this needs more work. For example, I'm not happy with having I2P mentioned at the very end of a long section about Tor without any hint about it before (either in the intro or in the structure). Remember that people don't read on the web, they scan.
Still, I want to do a more constructive review but I won't be able to do it in time for 1.3, so I'm postponing to 1.3.1.

what happened ? It says "Applied" but it's not
Someone (probably me) mistakenly used "Closes:" when merging your work into
doc/6533-about_i2p in the official repo, so the Redmine/Gitolite integration thing thought it has been resolved. Otherwise, the current status of this ticket seems correct to me.
