+[[!meta title="Tails September 2017 report"]]
+
+[[!toc levels=2]]
+
+This report covers the activity of Tails in September 2017.
+
+Everything in this report is public.
+
+# A. VeraCrypt support in GNOME
+
+## A.1 Research user needs and development costs
+
+We bootstrapped the project, discussed internally a calendar for the UX
+design sprint, the alpha version, and the final release.
+
+**User needs**: We benchmarked different [open source survey
+platforms](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-September/003472.html)
+and decided to use [*LimeSurvey*](https://www.limesurvey.org/) to
+conduct the online quantitative survey that will help us determine which
+features and use cases for VeraCrypt we should prioritize in the best
+interest of both our existing and prospective user base.
+
+**Development costs**:
+We looked at the relevant code bases of udisks and GNOME Disks to get a rough estimate of the development cost to implement the VeraCrypt support.
+
+## A.4 Add VeraCrypt support to udisks
+
+We extended udisks to support locking and unlocking of VeraCrypt volumes. The code is available in [a fork of udisks on GitHub](https://github.com/segfault3/udisks/tree/support-truecrypt). The progress is tracked in [[!tails_ticket 6337]].
+
+# B. Additional software
+
+We bootstrapped the project, discussed internally a calendar for the UX
+design sprint, the alpha version, and the final release.
