Even though comments are not preserved… What do you think about commenting all non-obvious settings?
For example https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,489.msg3757.html#msg3757 is not obvious to the reader.
For example. Currently:
<!-- Disable drag and drop by SPICE, so users cannot accidentally copy from guest to host and vice versa. It is recommended to use shared folders in documentation. --> <filetransfer enable='no'/>?
These comments should ideally be useful to all kinds of audience. Developers such as you and me, so we still remember in a years time why we set which setting, for auditors who are wondering why the fu… we did that and users who are wondering 'well, couldn’t I set “”, what are the risks, would that be okay for me".
Disadvantage is, we would have to mirror all those comments in all xml files, which could be kinda annoying and cumbersome?
Alternatively we could just use https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,462.0.html to add one comment, that links to some wiki page, that explains the whole reasoning behind the settings we are using. What do you think?
