I’ve been postponing this for 7 months and I’m systematically overclocked, so removing this from “core work”.

We have only three links to security in a box currently.

Only the first link is outdated. The other two work.

  • QA Check set to Info Needed

The only remaining link here is https://securityinabox.org/en/guide/pidgin/windows/ and for Linux they now recommend using Jitsi. So we might want to remove the link in our doc altogether.

Now that I spent 5 minutes researching this, I let you make the final decision :)

Thanks for checking the existing links!

I also quickly browse the new Security-in-a-Box in search of possibly more links to point to and I didn’t find anything else.

Cody: Would you like to review my small branch for that?
