Questions from the Foundations Team
===================================
Research questions
------------------
### OpenPGP support outside of Thunderbird ([[!tails_ticket 8310]], [[!tails_ticket 17183]], [[!tails_ticket 17169]])
OpenPGP support outside of Thunderbird ([[!tails_ticket 8310]], [[!tails_ticket 17183]], [[!tails_ticket 17169]])
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This will become an even hotter topic once Enigmail goes away in a few months:
Thunderbird will maintain its own keyring, independently from GnuPG's ⇒
Seahorse will stop being useful for anything related to email, so the
cost/benefit of vaguely supporting it will become even higher.
- **How popular is OpenPGP inside and outside Thunderbird?**
- **How technical are the people using OpenPGP outside Thunderbird?**
- **Could these people use Thunderbird instead?**
- **Who will suffer from the Thunderbird migration because they use
OpenPGP both inside and outside Thundebird?**
### Can we stop including an IRC client by default? (#15816)
This open question has been the main blocker for replacing Pidgin for years.
- **What would be the cost of removing the support for IRC by default in Tails?**
- **How technical are the people using IRC in Tails?**
- **Are people using IRC in Tails to connect to servers that do not block Tor?**
- **How popular is XMPP among our users?**
### Notes
- Secure Drop mentions encrypting files with GPG went sending submissions:
<http://33y6fjyhs3phzfjj.onion/lookup>.
### Prompt
Survey on **ease of use and online privacy tools**
**Contribute to Tails by answering these few questions!** (4&ndash;5 minutes)
### Proposal survey
To improve Tails we need to learn how people use it but, unlike
others, we don't track you against your will. Your answers are anonymous
and only our team can access the data.
- **Do you use OpenPGP in Tails?** (`*`)
### Questions
*OpenPGP is also called PGP, GnuPG, or GPG.*
- **Overall, how difficult or easy is it for you to use Tails?** (`*`)
7-point scale from *Very Difficult* to *Very Easy*
- **If you could change just one thing in Tails, what would it be?**

### Conditional questions on OpenPGP or Pidgin
- **We might be interested in asking you a few more questions to
understand better how you use OpenPGP or Pidgin in Tails. If you feel
like it, you can share your email address with us. We will only use it
to contact you as part of this research and delete it afterwards.**

I2P (#12264)
------------
It's unclear what we should tell nowadays to folks interested in re-adding I2P
support.
