Okay, so then where are we going to host it?
A cloud VPS.
Okay so then what packages are we going to install?
Well lets go ahead and get all that set up with apt
Okay how are we going to handle DNS?
Build a reverse proxy with nginx on the VPS, but also we need to redirect from the whonix.org server’s nginx with a proxy pass…so there’s some more config
Okay how are we going to handle TLS?
Certbot with nginx
Okay, what are we going to do for backups?
We can setup backups in the cloud provider GUI
Okay how much is it going to cost a month?
Well that depends, but probably around 10 bucks a month
Okay how are we going to ensure this is reproducible?
Well we should probably use a config mgmt tool like ansible to build this, at the very least write a bunch of shell scripts
Okay who is going to upgrade it when changes occur?
Well someone must handle that
Okay who is going to audit the security of the server?
Well probably Patrick realistically
Okay so what CI are we going to use to replace github actions?
I guess we could set up a jenkins instance…or maybe woodpecker/drone…god dammit this is getting annoying
Okay so why the fuck did we not just use github?
good question…really good question…there goes my entire month of real contributions to whonix outside of my day job
Anyways, staying on topic. Lets focus on removing tools that cost us time and resources, not adding new tools that cost us time…unless they really will improve our lives
