Regarding Tails and our subprojects.

a. I would replace "The Amnesia Incognito Live System" with "Tails" as
the name of the project at

b. I would change the description to:

« Tails is a live operating system that you can start from a USB stick
or a DVD. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent
censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no
trace by default. »

c. If you think it's relevant you could add Onion Circuits to the list.
It's the replacement of the network map of Vidalia in Tails but lives as
an standalone Debian package:

  - Name: Onion Circuits
  - Category: User Interface
  - Language: Python/Gtk
  - Activity: Light
  - Maintainer: alant, Tails
  - Code: https://git-tails.immerda.ch/onioncircuits/
  - Doc: https://tails.boum.org/doc/anonymous_internet/tor_status/
  - Debian: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/onioncircuits.
  - Description: Taken from the Debian package:

« Onion Circuits is a GTK+ application to display Tor circuits and
streams. It allows the user to inspect the circuits the locally running
Tor daemon has built, along with some metadata for each node. »
