# Foreword

Our [[contribute/relationship_with_upstream]] statement defines our
relationship with Debian.

# Tasks

* Work on the [[Debian bugs that affect
  Tails|contribute/relationship_with_upstream#debian-bts]].
* Work on our [tickets about Debian
  work](https://labs.riseup.net/code/projects/tails/issues?query_id=138).
* Help maintain backports:
  - look for "jessie-backports" on [[!tails_gitweb config/chroot_apt/preferences]]
  - Xorg stack (at least the foundations and the major drivers)
* Help maintain packages:
  - [[!debpts libgsecuredelete]]
  - [[!debpts mat]]
  - [[!debpts nautilus-wipe]]
  - privacy-related packages in the [Debian Privacy Team](https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/PkgPrivacyMaintainers)

* Help with distribution-wide improvements:
  - [AppArmor support](https://wiki.debian.org/AppArmor)
  - [Hardening](https://wiki.debian.org/HardeningWalkthrough)
  - [Reproducible builds](https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds)
  - [Reproducible installs](https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleInstalls)
* Set up automated QA of [Debian Live](http://live.debian.net/)
  development branches, and/or change the workflow of this project so
  that one can backport improvements into the stable branches.
