Description (last modified by gk)

torbutton new version adds a lot of security improvements. But, some of these improvements involve behaviour which might
seem strange at first glance (for example, if you load a page without tor, switch to tor use, you cannot load a link from that page).

Those strange behaviours are documented online at

We plan to package torbutton for debian.
In debian, software documentation is usually placed in a well known location (/usr/share/doc directory).
So, when users encounter those strange behaviours, they will be likely to check for documentation in that location, instead of trying to get some documentation online.
Therefore, we'd like to ship a FAQ or README file inside our package.

So, if you ship a FAQ or README file as part of torbutton repository, that will make things easy for us.

If that's a problem for you, we'll probably just dump to plain text.
