Putting this in website, in the meantime, I suggest you replace the wiki page with a link to the up to date guide.
Anyone can edit the wiki.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by gman999

Okay, so just to be clear since I don't know correct Trac protocol...

I can empty the current page, replace it with our chroot guide and provide an href to our wiki page?

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by teor

Yes. And if you make a mistake, that's what history is for.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by gman999

The page has been replaced with the new OpenBSD chroot instructions.

More formatting cleanup needed, but it's fine and operational.

Summary: updated chroot document to referenceupdate chroot howtos

As this is still open I take the chance to mention that doc/TorInChroot is outdated as well. I linked to the current debian guide but this is not solution. "It will result in a Tor-Installation which will be run in a chroot-environment by the special user tor" is basically what a packaged installation achieves, so it would be better to replace the instructions with a link to the package. However on some installations (like shared hosting) apt and dpkg are not accessible and the instructions to install from source are helpful.
