jeremiah.foster added a comment to T570: Package OpenQA for Debian.

I'd like to set up an OpenQA instance. But it looks like I can't use PureOS or Debian to do so. The only blocker is a MR in Salsa: https://salsa.debian.org/debian/os-autoinst/merge_requests/1/diffs which looks pretty reasonable. @jonas.smedegaard does Hideki Yamane-san hang out in the Debian-perl channel, perhaps we ask him to merge that diff there? Otherwise I'll go ahead and install on SuSE (heaven forbid.)

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T327: Package OpenSnitch.

I've been using an opensnitch deb in regular, daily usage for a while now. It is functional, not so buggy in terms of interface and functionality. It does leak memory and can take up a significant chunk of my 16 available gigs of RAM, more than 80%, which slows my machine down to a crawl. That said, we might be able to work with the developer. Having this in PureOS is a powerful security story.

Oct 21 2019, 07:39
jeremiah.foster added a comment to T845: Removing the Problem Reporting section from the Privacy panel in the initial setup.

There is a certain amount of professionalism having this as a option - I believe it shows that we want to fix issues and that we're open about the issues we have. This can be empowering for users, most of whom come from closed, proprietary worlds where they never see the data that the send to nor see their issues fixed in a timely manner. At the same time, I agree with Francois that this may appear to be an invasion of privacy even if you can turn it off. The reason is that users don't know clearly what information is gathered and how. "Reports" are sent on "technical problems". I feel this is very vague and I imagine most people will turn it off, so my preference is to have this turned off by default and perhaps not part of the initial setup. If a user reports issues we can ask them to turn it on. Also, where does the collected information show up?

So I'm not sure what's happening here but it cannot boot because it can't find your disks. Usually /dev/mapper maps your disk UUIDs to the luks encryption and /etc/fstab holds the info on your boot disk. Those are unavailable for some reason on your system.
