Create a backup of the Kicksecure ™ Anonymous Operating System website and source code. The more people that retain backups, the less likely Kicksecure ™ can be erased from the history books. This can be done periodically, every now and then or when convenient.

Donate them to Kicksecure ™ or release them into the public domain. We also have a video script waiting to be produced - please get in contact for further details.

Social Media / Marketing[edit]

Although social media platforms erode privacy goals by collecting a lot of user data, we believe they are important venues for marketing and communication in the modern era.

Contributor Responsibilities[edit]

The tasks of a contributor include:

  • Answering questions in the forums.
  • Keeping the wiki up-to-date.
  • Testing of installation, build and upgrade instructions.
  • Following the issue tracker, squashing bugs and perhaps implementing new features relating to the maintained component.
  • Otherwise self-initiated (guess) work and taking care of the component in question.

This is a volunteer position.

Package Contributor[edit]

Kicksecure ™ provides a lot of Debian packages; see Overview for further information. Due to limited Kicksecure ™ contributors resources, only a few packages are supported on Debian hosts. A lot of these packages are untested and unmaintained in any other Linux distribution.

Would you be interested in maintaining one or more packages for use beyond Kicksecure ™? For example, in Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora or other distributions? Maintenance requirements would involve keeping up with code changes and releases, testing if these packages work outside of Kicksecure ™, eventually reporting bugs or adding new features, and answering user support requests.

If interested, ambitious package contributors could even seek to have one or more Kicksecure ™ packages accepted into a mainstream Linux distribution.

This is a volunteer position.

General Tasks[edit]

People with skills and interest in the following areas would also help:

  • Good knowledge of Linux networking and iptables.
  • AppArmor profile creation and testing of new AppArmor profiles for improved security.
  • #!/bin/bash
  • Programming languages like Python, Ruby, C, and others.
  • Registration at our issue tracker.
  • Participation in the development forum; consider hitting the "notify" button to subscribe.
  • Discussion participation - login on github and go to https://github.com/Kicksecure/Kicksecure/issues and press "watch" for notifications about Kicksecure ™ github issues (this is an old issue tracker and less important).

Release Manager[edit]

If you are willing to have your real name connected to the Kicksecure ™ project and Tor, please continue reading.

Depending on your interests, your tasks could include:

  • Building Kicksecure ™ .ova images:
    • Creating stable releases.
    • Creating stable hotfix releases.
    • Creating assorted other builds. [5]
  • Building Kicksecure ™ .libvirt images.
  • Reporting bugs when builds fail.
  • Signing and uploading releases.
  • Updating the download page.
  • Posting to the blog or mailing lists.
  • Fixing simple build documentation.
