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 Debian packages (see the Overview for more information). Due to limited Whonix team resources, 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:

  • Good knowledge of Linux networking and iptables
  • AppArmor profile creation and testing of new AppArmor profiles for improved security
  • #!/bin/bash
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • C
  • Other programming languages
  • Registration at our new issue tracker https://phabricator.whonix.org; consider subscribing.
  • Participation in the development forum; consider hitting the "notify" button to subscribe
  • Discussion participation - login on github and go to https://github.com/Whonix/Whonix/issues and press "watch" for notifications about Whonix github issues (this is an old issue tracker and less important)

Translations Coordinator[edit]

The tasks of a Translations Coordinator include:

  • Joining the Whonix team on https://www.whonix.org
  • Reading the translation extensions documentation for mediawiki
  • Getting new translators started
  • Maybe translating text into your own native language
  • Coordinating translations


This is a volunteer position.

Release Manager[edit]

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

Depending on your interests, your tasks could include:

  • Building Whonix .ova images
    • Creating stable releases
    • Creating stable hotfix releases
    • Creating assorted other builds[4]
  • 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
  • Dev/Redistribution
  • Testing [5]


This is a volunteer position.

KDE Desktop Developer[edit]
