Description

https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password/ talks about "Yes" and "Forward" buttons.

Same for "How to use bridges in Tails" on https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/startup_options/bridge_mode/.

Candidates for core work tech writing?

(The funny thing is that I noticed this while looking for dependencies to write in my example metadata file on https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/Debian_testing/#doc-update, i.e. my tiny example metadata file would have allowed us to notice 1 problem already, which proves that the idea is not totally stupid :)

I've pushed a branch addressing the "set up an administration password" instructions.

https://github.com/cbrownstein/tails

I refer to the first dialog the user sees as "Tails Greeter" instead of "Welcome to Tails!" window. My rationale is that Tails Greeter now consists of only one dialog (see #14879) and referring to a "Welcome to Tails!" window suggests that there will be other windows.

@cbrownstein: it seems you already did quite some work on this, maybe you want to assign this to sajolida for review and create a new ticket for the missing part instead? So we can improve the documentation step by step? What do you think?

I've finished up the other part (MAC address spoofing), so assigning to sajolida for QA. :-)

Great work! I also fixed the bridge configuration (df04668cb7) and some alt tags (1a48fc94b8). I copied your structure for the bridge configuration and only removed words for the alt tags, so I think we can skip another round of review here and I'll merge.
