+Hot topics on our help desk
+===========================
+
+- A lot of people reached the helpdesk at the start of the month worried about JavaScript not being disabled when Tor Browser is in safest mode: [NoScript is doing that job now](https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40082), [as intended](https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/33613). ([[!tails_ticket 17963]])
+
+- Keyboard and touchpad are not working anymore on some Acer and Asus laptops. ([[!tails_ticket 17955]])
+
+- Tails cannot start with some new Intel cards. ([[!tails_ticket 17953]])
+
+- Tails Installer does not allow upgrade in languages that have a translation for the 'Clone the current Tails' string. ([[!tails_ticket 17982]])
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+- We started experimenting with GitLab CI
+ ([[!tails_gitlab tails/sysadmin/-/issues/17740]])
+
+- We upgraded to Debian 10 ("Buster") the nodes that run automated tests on
+ Tails images in our CI ([[!tails_gitlab tails/sysadmin/-/issues/17731]])
+
+Funding
+=======
+
+### Grants
+
+- Our application to [RIPE NCC](https://www.ripe.net/publications/news/announcements/ripe-ncc-community-project-fund-2020-recipients-announced)
+ on improving Tails for censorship circumvention was approved.
+
+- Our applications to Prototype Fund in March and Code Lutins were rejected.
+
+### Donation process
+
+- We analyzed the results of the A/B testing on the new display of "one- time"
+ and "monthly".
+
+ The new version leads to more donation attempts AND less cancellations in the
+ attempt. The new version is life on the website for everybody now.
+
+### Donation campaign
+
+- We launched the donation campaign!
+
+- We started a database of problems reported by donors, as a way of
+ gathering data whenever we will want to improve on the most pressing
+ issues.
+
+- The only metrics that we can gather right now is donations in
+ cryptocurrencies.
+
+ So far we've had +62% donations in Bitcoin (266, 6.9k€) and +205%
+ donations in Monero (156, 2.2k€).
+
+Translations
+============
+
+- We improved the staging website build process.
+
+- We changed the maintainers email contact from tails-translations@boum.org to
+ tails-weblate@boum.org, to prevent confusion on matters related to
+ translations. ([[!tails_ticket 17734]]
