XXX: List important code work that is not covered already by the Release
section (for example, the changes being worked on for the next version).
- So far, everyone who tried reproducing the Tails 3.2~rc1 and 3.2 ISO
images succeeded. So here's a challenge for you: can you manage to
get a different ISO by following our [[build|contribute/build]] and
[[verification|contribute/build/reproducible#verify-iso]] instructions?
- We are improving integration of the _Orca screen reader_ and the
_GNOME screen keyboard_ into Tails ([[!tails_ticket 14752]],
[[!tails_ticket 8260]]). A discussion about the screen reader's user
experience has been [[!tails_ticket 14713 desc="initiated"]] by
Pablo Natalino, and intrigeri [[!gnomebug 788369 desc="started"]]
a discussion upstream about the long-press delay for typing special
chars with it.
- We have formalized how the AppArmor profile for _Thunderbird_ is
maintained in Debian and upstream. This clarifies where and how our
contributions should be submitted and At the end of the day this
should avoid the need to maintain a Tails-specific delta.
- We are working on fixing _Seahorse_ buggy interfacing with
_pinentry-gtk2_ upstream ([[!gnomebug 787543]], [[!debbug 869416]]).
A workaround was applied in Tails 3.2 already but we try hard to
stick to our [[contribute/relationship_with_upstream]] statement.

* We greatly improved our [[instructions for building the Tails ISO image|contribute/build/]] and created a new section about how to [[verify that the Tails ISO image is reproducible|contribute/build/reproducible/]].
* We are documenting the process for Tails contributors to request
sponsorship when attending events on behalf of Tails, in order to
improve fairness and to streamline how the simplest cases are
handled. This documentation should land on our website by the end
of the year.
