"Also, while at the IETF, we had a meeting with Jacob Appelbaum and Linus Nordberg from TOR. We thought that it would be nice to integrate JTor within Jitsi and offer the option of using it without the need to download a dedicated TOR client.
“This would be a nice project too.”
Indeed, that would be a great complementary Jitsi-feature.

I doubt we want to ship and run a second Tor client in Tails, so I’m
not sure how it relates to the Tails VoIP feature in practice.

The advantage of having Tor in Jitsi outside of Tails is that more people will be able to use Jitsi with Tor which potentially will help making deanonymisation more difficult for both kinds of Tor users. The Jitsi version included with Tails does not need that integrated JTor client.

Sure, thanks for asking. The main task is to integrate Jitsi into Tails so that it can be delivered as part of it.
A subtask (or additional task) is to compile a list of known privacy issues or potential issues. That is to ensure that Jitsi in Tails does not contain avoidable security or privacy issues. The Jitsi issue I linked to above is one of them, but there is a small number of other issues or questions I would like the Tails core developers to know about.
Does this answer the question?

I’m glad someone wants to tackle it. Please note that we have been
considering other solutions (Linphone) that may be much easier to get
installed on Tails.
> Does this answer the question?
Sure. This looks like an ambitious task to me, so perhaps you want to
create smaller sub-tickets that can be addressed one after the other
(e.g. just trying to actually install Jitsi in Tails/Wheezy would
be a nice start :)

- Status changed from Confirmed to Rejected
Jitsi seems to be dead: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/jitsi. The package has been removed from Debian last year and had not seen any new versions since 2015. I think we can reject this ticket until we find something more suitable.
