That is far too much detail for the https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Warning page: that page should  dispel user misconceptions, too high exceptions, too risky reliance. Explaining that in terms which sound understandable, conceivable (not being discarded as “conspiracy theory”).
OCSP (from user point of view: whatever that is), Retroactive availability, medium effort.
That’s not something:
- users can/should remember when reading that page
That is more interesting for researchers / developers.
My problem with that is that reviewing this would take away development time for more impactful things such as various security hardening recently. If I’d accept it on faith without review it would make the project look stupid if there were major discrepancies.
It would fit better in https://www.whonix.org/wiki/The_World_Wide_Web_And_Your_Privacy or https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Data_Collection_Techniques? That pages don’t have to be as thoroughly reviewed as maintained by torjunkie. What the https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Maintainer is supposed to communicate is, that that page is the main responsibility of that maintainer. Therefore it does not have to be as thoroughly reviewed. It is more similar to a blog account on
blogger.com such as
blogger.com isn’t the publisher.
blogger.com is just a platform.
To oversimplify it: Whonix is just a collection of configuration files and scripts.
Now over time changed to:
In simple terms, Whonix ™ is just a collection of configuration files and scripts.
Not sure that is very same meaning intended to community. Oversimplify is a valid word in dictionary.
“Whonix is just a collection of configuration files and scripts.” It’s not. There are too many configuration files and scripts. Realistically (almost) nobody will replicate all or most of what Whonix does one by one with configuration files and scripts. It would be silly to call Whonix "a collection of configuration files and scripts` and I have not seen that claim. Years ago Whonix became a Linux distribution. But for the sake of making that point it is useful to view it that way “Whonix is just a collection of configuration files and scripts.” The point I am trying to convene is that by adding more and more pre-configuration for anonymity/privacy/security and package selection it is still Debian based and while there are some bugs nothing major is breaking and nothing is deliberately freedom restricted.
