    Default Tor

    Tor seems to be missing from the 32-bit (I haven't checked 64) BT5 package repository.

    It's easy enough to install manually, but since it's recommended by a number of other packages, I assume a package is supposed to exist?

    Yeah, I know how to install and configure Tor, I just figured I'd point out that it's missing from the package repository.

    It's not missing (as in we forgot it) it's missing because the team felt it was not needed. Penetration testers don't generally attempt to hide their activities using tor exit nodes. Generally one wants the company that is tested to know that something is being done. Not only to cover one's ass(ets ) during a test, but to also gauge how well the IT dept. is doing their job in monitoring their networks, to stop potential attackers. Audit trails.

    fine, I'll install it myself.

    For the record, I wasn't asking for it to be installed with the release image, I was only asking for it to be included in the repository alongside the hosts of far more worthless packages that you've nonetheless done the work of including.
