First off, I’d like to give big thanks to the Tails maintainers and community.. truly an amazing distribution. I’ve lurked and used the OS for some time now and I would like to inquire on the current status of UEFI secure boot with Tails. Working in security space I get people ask me what to use for privacy & privacy, however, I believe UEFI Secure Boot is a big pain point for adoption as disabling Secure Boot in BIOS is difficult for the average person.
I have seen resources online that successfully patch this using Shim + Grub2 and would like to understand the current status of this feature. Am willing to contribute time if it would help get this fixed.

"Honestly, the blueprint is just a compilation of bookmarks we've collected in the last few years. We have no plan, no idea which one of the various main paths we'll pick, and nobody is actively working on it, nor has plans to do so. So, I don't think "In progress" reflects correctly the real state of this task, and I'd rather not see this indication discourage anyone from tackling it. (Oh, and next time you'll triage the "In progress without assignee" tickets, it would pop up on your radar again ;)"
