+[[!meta title="Tails October 2017 report"]]
+
+[[!toc levels=2]]
+
+This report covers the activity of Tails in October 2017.
+
+Everything in this report is public.
+
+# A. VeraCrypt support in GNOME
+
+## A.1 Research user needs and development costs
+
+- **User needs**:
+
+ - We installed [*LimeSurvey* on our infrastructure](https://survey.tails.boum.org).
+
+ - We created a draft survey and refined it after conducting two pilot
+ tests with *VeraCrypt* users.
+
+ - We advertised the final survey from the homepage of *Tor Browser* in
+ Tails on October 17:
+
+ [[!img survey.png link="no"]]
+
+ - Our users have been [very responsive to our
+ call](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-October/003505.html)
+ and since then we have gathered 30 complete answers to the survey each
+ day on average, reaching 375 in total on October 30.
+
+## A.4 Add VeraCrypt support to udisks
+
+ - Since VeraCrypt volumes are, by design, not distinguishable from random data, we researched ways to indicate to the user that a volume might be a VeraCrypt volume.
+ - We implemented a method to assess whether a volume is a candidate for being VeraCrypt encrypted.
+ - We researched and started discussing different ways to handle unlocking of VeraCrypt candidates.
+
+## A.5 Add VeraCrypt support to GNOME Disks
+
+We added preliminary support for locking and unlocking VeraCrypt volumes in GNOME Disks.
+
+# B. Additional software
+
+We started working on one of the major UX improvements this project is
+about ([[!tails_ticket 9059]]) and on minor UX improvement that is not
+formally part of this project, but would be nice to have ([[!tails_ticket 6038]]).
+
+# C. Deliver new features
+
+We're not there yet.
