Even if we had a Whonix host additions (https://phabricator.whonix.org/T21) package, it would still be unclear on how to securely sync the time on the host. Conceptually unclear.
Running sdwdate, distributed fetching time from Tor hidden services isn’t possible for users in censored areas. They might even want to avoid connecting to the Tor public network.
Trying to find a solution here that works for any host. Not just for Whonix, Tor users.
Any “check if connecting to the public Tor network is okay for you or dangerous, even though you might not care about Tor” + “oh well, there are also all sorts of bridges stuff” seems awful.
