Patrick this is just an idea worth considering if it isn’t already implemented. I think if an option is added to the Gateway’s GUI to configure it as a relay instead of a client, that would encourage people to help by giving their bandwidth to the Tor network.
There is such an option. This got simpler with Whonix 7 oder 8.
Reminded me to update this page:
Adding this to Whonix-Gateway’s GUI… No idea how that could be done. Technical problem is is, this also requires a change in Virtual Box. (Enable port forwarding from host to gateway.)
It would be great if The Tor Project could finally overcome need for any port forwarding, but I guess that will need a few more years or even decades. As alternative, if they packaged (no Adobe!) flash proxy server for Debian, hosting a bridge would become as simple as apt-get install flashbridge.
I think easier solutions to contribute to the Tor network are currently cupcake and Tor Flashproxy Badge. (Added to that wiki page.)
The steps are many, but there might be something to see in here for those who want to port forward to a relay Gateway on KVM:

Can be added to
