Prevents Tor over Tor in Anonymity Distribution Workstations
Supposed to be installed on Workstations, which prevents installing the real Tor package from upstream (ex: Debian, The Tor Project) APT repositories. Its purpose is to prevent, running Tor over Tor.
It allows installation of packages, which depend on Tor, such as TorChat, parcimonie and torbrowser-launcher.
This package uses the "Provides: tor" field, which should avoid any kinds of conflicts, in case upstream releases a higher version of Tor. This won't work for packages, which depend on an explicit version of Tor (such as TorChat). This is non-ideal, since for example the torchat package will install Tor, but still acceptable, because of the following additional implementations.
Binaries eventually installed (by the tor Debian package) /usr/bin/tor as well as /usr/sbin/tor are replaced with a dummy wrapper that does nothing (dpkg-diverted using config-package-dev).
systemd-socket-proxyd listens on Tor's default ports. system Tor's 127.0.0.1:9050, 127.0.0.1:9051 and TBB's 127.0.0.1:9150, 127.0.0.1:9051, which prevents the default Tor Browser Bundle or Tor package by The Tor Project from opening these default ports, which will result in Tor failing to open its listening port and therefore exiting, thus preventing Tor over Tor.
