Hi,

we at Tails (tails.boum.org) currently work on integrating support for
unlocking VeraCrypt (and probably also TrueCrypt) volumes in Tails via
udisks2 and GNOME Disks (and maybe also GNOME Files and the GVfs
monitor). We internally track the status of this work in [1] and [2].
Currently we are gathering data on the requirements of our users via a
survey [3], in order to make decisions about which features we want to
implement (support for legacy TrueCrypt volumes, file containers, hidden
volumes, keyfiles).

We would like to know whether you want to have VeraCrypt/TrueCrypt
support in upstream too. I assume that this is wanted in udisks2,
because there is already an open ticket for this [4]. What about GNOME
Disks?
