Dear Whonix community…

After an exchange with Patrick a few weeks ago, I’ve begun plowing into some work to help further enhance the historical integrity and verification of Whonix. More on that in an upcoming future posting.

As part of this work, I am happy to report to you that I was able to preserve what is likely a full permanent historical archive of the original TorBOX project site, on the torproject.org wiki, where Whonix first got its humble beginnings.

Here is the URL of the original TorBOX wiki site:

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX

I was able to write and run a script to automatically archive all of the TorBOX wiki pages and each page’s detailed history, with the following 3 public archiving sites:

I’ve only done a very brief check to see that the archives were generally going through successfully. That means that there could possibly be some holes in the archives, but, overall, it seems that each TorBOX page probably ended getting successfully archived with at least one or more of the services I mentioned.

Here are some links to where most of the pages in the public TorBOX archives are:

Here is a dump of all of the original TorBOX history page URLs that I archived:

9,131 total history pages…

Too large for Whonix forum. See paste link:

I’m happy to have ensured that the historical beginnings of the Whonix project are now archived permanently.

A big thanks to Patrick and team for the years put into such a novel and valuable piece of free software. :slight_smile:
