Hello IPFire community (particularly Tor users),
as the maintainer of the Tor add-on in IPFire, I found myself thinking about bundling it with the Vanguards add-on the Tor project has developed. While it is primarily intended to be used by operators of so-called “high-risk onion services”, it has some benefits for regular Tor clients as well, and distributions such as Whonix include it by default.
It should not be a too difficult task to integrate that add-on, but I’d like to do a poll on this first to make sure I am not wasting my time (because folks don’t care, or use something like Whonix anyway, or whatever reason).
Additional reading on Vanguards is available here:

Thanks, and best regards,
