[tor-dev] [GSoC]Tails-server

the "community bonding period" is over for quite some time now,
but as I have previously said in my application,
I (unfortunately) won't be able to start my GSoC until the 8th of June.

So far, I managed to build Tails in a virtual machine,
in a tmpfs, using a proxy (to avoid spamming Debian's mirrors);
but also using vagrant[1]. It takes me only
a couple of minutes to build Tails on my machine, which
is a good news.

About the testing environment now:
It seems like liveCD testing is not something
that interest people very much. The autotesting repo[3]
of debian-live is a 404, and even if it wasn't,
the documentation is lacking.
The "mainstream way" for doing system-wide/vm/liveCD tests is
autotest[4], but it seems completely overkill to me.

This is why I am currently playing around with lettuce[2],
a nice Python-powered BDD tool.

Hopefully, my next status update will be more

Have a nice day
