Don't you already regret basing Tails off a binary distro like Debian?
I mean, updating TODO lists once in a while and making “plans” sounds
fun and all, but not only are you completely dependent on an upstream
distro's features implementation cycle — you are missing the
opportunity to learn new things while implementing those features
yourself. I mean, Liberté was the first Linux distro to ship with a
UEFI Secure Boot-based trusted boot chain — do you think you will ever
be able to say something of the sort about Tails? Open Source
development is supposed to be exciting, not this… bureaucracy.
