Undue Section: Known Problems[edit]

The undue-section template was added by someone else. I agree with him/her. Many of the problems listed are negligible. The source's list also has the potential to change frequently, making it hard to maintain an up-to-date mirror here on Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information. I therefore propose that the section in question be deleted or turned into prose that is supported by third party sources. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 19:03, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

How many other software entries on wikipedia have the entire known issues documentation listed in full? Perhaps the section could be replaced with a link to the known issues page at https://tails.boum.org/support/known_issues/index.en.html DGedye (talk) 06:19, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Agreed. I have now reduced the entire section to a link in the "External links" section. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 13:26, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

NSA monitoring web pages related to Tails[edit]

I don't suppose this news is relevant to the article itself, but it seemed worth mentioning it on the talk page at least. "Use Tor or 'EXTREMIST' Tails Linux? Congrats, you're on an NSA list" - The Register --98.86.118.112 (talk) 20:19, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

It is already mentioned in the history section. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 23:10, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Exactly why did you edit the title of my post? I've restored the original, as the edit was definitely unnecessary. 98.86.121.73 (talk) 23:37, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Tails (operating system) article. This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject. "FYI, the NSA may be monitoring this article and any IPs that access it" is not a good title if you want to discuss improvements to the article. That is why I changed it to "NSA monitoring web pages related to Tails". I assume that information was what you wanted to be added to the article. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 09:52, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Add signature / fingerprint info to "Release history" section?[edit]

It seems like we should add basic signature / fingerprint info here so users can verify. Thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by JonathanCross (talkcontribs) 22:55, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Basic signature / fingerprint info belongs on Tails's official website, not in an encyclopedia. The current Release history section already contains too much indiscriminate information. According to WP:IINFO, it should be trimmed so that it only contains releases that have received attention in third-party sources. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 09:11, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
