Hi Whonix dev here. We are an anonymity distro with around 30K users. We
are interested in using Tahoe-LAFS as a failsafe to distribute project
metadata and communicate with our users in case there is ever an attempt
to kick us off centralized hosting and development platforms in a
dystopian future.

More details: We communicate with users by displaying signed
announcements via our news system called whonixcheck which just pings
our server to check if newer messages are available. I envision  making
whonixcheck ping a Tahoe share instead which would essentially
decentralize hosting while preserving message integrity and
immutability. There is probably a few nifty things we can do with magic
folders too but I don't know if this made into the Tahoe version before
the Debian stable freeze.

What public/volunteer Tahoe grids can we use?

Are there any known onion Tahoe grids?

Do you mind if we use your test grid? If not, then where can I find the
latest info on the introducer? (wiki pages seemed outdated)
