- Finish the work on the new download page and verification extension; hopefully... somehow...
- Do fun UX stuff as I'm under-clocked on this budget line (breaking news: under-clocking happens!)

- Prepare the VeraCrypt UX sprint in December

## [[!tails_ticket 14808 desc="OpenPGP Applet should display long keyid (or even only FP)"]]
### Problem description:
Currently OpenPGP applet show hex key id (short) in pub key selection.
The Fingerprints are shown as mouse-over. The mouse-over will probably
go in the not to distant future.
### Discussion summary:
- It's not used for key verification, only disambiguation.
- user should not rely on id for verification (any id).
- seahorse-tool show short key id
- Fingerprint here would be confusing.
### Decision:
Since seahorse-tool show short key id, we should stick with that, or,
preferably, display no id at all. Then we would show the key creation
date for disambiguation.
## [[!tails_ticket 63807 desc="Create screencast videos of installing Tails onto a USB stick"]]
### Problem description:
Comment #18 on the ticket. In short: do we really want this, seeing that
it's not easy to do correctly ?
### Discussion summary:
- we don't have the manpower / skills to do that ourselves and maintain
such screencasts (not even talking about making it translatable)
- we can rely on other people work, like the video from
Infosec/Bytes/CIJ:
https://youtu.be/8NXvsWRcSns?list=PLOZKbRUo9H_qXgyGp5UVYCoGQYo9YB5E8&t=308
- it could be useful for some stuff, for instance the FAT32 vs
NTFS problems
### Decision:
Reject this ticket. We acknowledge that such videos could be useful, but
we can't maintain them ourselves
