Maintainer Responsibilities[edit]

The tasks of a maintainer include:

  • Answering questions in the forums.
  • Keeping the wiki up-to-date.
  • Testing of installation, build and upgrade instructions.
  • Following the issue tracker, squashing bugs and perhaps implementing new features relating to the maintained component.
  • Otherwise self-initiated (guess)work and taking care of the component in question.

This is a volunteer position.

Package Maintainer[edit]

Whonix ™ provides a lot of Debian packages; see Overview [archive] for further information. Due to limited Whonix ™ team resources, only a few packages are supported on Debian hosts. A lot of these packages are untested and unmaintained in any other Linux distribution.

Would you be interested in maintaining one or more packages for use beyond Whonix ™? For example, in Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora or other distributions? Maintenance requirements would involve keeping up with code changes and releases, testing if these packages work outside of Whonix ™, eventually reporting bugs or adding new features, and answering user support requests.

If interested, ambitious package maintainers could even seek to have one or more Whonix ™ packages accepted into a mainstream Linux distribution.

This is a volunteer position.

General Tasks[edit]

People with skills and interest in the following areas would also help:

Release Manager[edit]

If you are willing to have your real name connected to the Whonix ™ project and Tor, please continue reading.

  • Building Whonix ™ .ova images:

    • Creating stable hotfix releases.
    • Creating assorted other builds. [6]
  • Building Whonix ™ .libvirt images.
  • Reporting bugs when builds fail.
  • Signing and uploading releases.
  • Updating the download page.
  • Posting to the blog or mailing lists.
  • Fixing simple build documentation.

This is a volunteer position.
