Hi all. Work and life is conspiring to keep me busier than usual. What time was left this November mostly went toward non-development activities. I miss coding…
Tor Ecosystem Presentation
On 11/18 I gave a presentation at Seattle’s TA3M overviewing projects in the Tor ecosystem, with an eye toward getting more developers involved…
Preparing for this gobbled up a surprising amount of time (I don’t do much public speaking), but I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’ll likely give this presentation again at other local venues, such as LinuxFest Northwest in the spring.
Email List Management
Much of this last month went toward managing our lists and leading a discussion about what we’d like to do with our non-public lists. Work on this is ongoing, but at the very least we’ll finally get a public, documented process for adding folks.
I also sunk several hours into a frustrating GMail issue where it bounces Mailman’s moderator queue as spam. At one point this seems to have been responsible for unsubscribing everyone using GMail from tor-assistants@. I’ve changed Mailman’s configuration so this hopefully won’t happen again, but I’m out of ideas for the GMail bounces.
Other news this month includes…
- Fixed an important Stem ImportError under Windows. This resulted in a hotfix release of Stem (version 1.1.1). (ticket)
- Added Stem support for the new event types from proposal 218. (change)
- Code reviewed Philipp’s ExitMap project.
- Read over tbbscraper and added to Stem’s examples page.
- Helped provide stats for the impact of changing tor’s default exit policy. (ticket)
