Qubes-Whonix – Testers Wanted!

Qubes-Whonix only!

Either start with fresh templates. I.e. uninstall qubes-template-whonix-gw and qubes-template-whonix-ws. Then, to install, run in dom0:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-unstable qubes-template-whonix-gw qubes-template-whonix-ws

Or you can also upgrade from Whonix testers repository. Please refer to the following instructions:

Qubes OS looking for developers!

The Qubes OS team is looking for several additional team members:

  • Debian template manager
  • stable release manager
  • core developer

You can read more in their posting. From my experience working with the Qubes OS team, they are easy to work with.

In my view, the Debian template maintainer and core developer positions are good ways to get a position in a Libre Software project, by starting as a volunteer working on open tasks. Be helpful. Relieve more work from existing developers than adding to their plate. This is the most convincing thing you can do.
