Hi all,

As promised here are the notes for the last OONI weekly call of August 19th 2013 18:00 CET.

People present

* Meredith
* Nathan
* Tom
* Arturo
* Stephen

This is what was discussed:

# Drop /nettest part of API

Stephen raised some good points on the /nettest API. We agreed that since keeping track of versioning is something a bit complicated we should not implement this feature at this time. We should always update net tests and the probe software at the same time, therefore having a feature that could possibly lead to this un-alignement is not ideal.

## Next steps

We will remove from the oonib.md specification the /nettest API and remove support for it inside of oonib.

# Doing the security audit with test infrastructure

Nathan said that it would be useful to have oonib deployed in an environment that resembles production is useful to them.

We will not manage to have ooni deployed on the m-lab production nodes, but we can easily deploy it on the m-lab test nodes. 

Stephen says that as long as the package building process keeps on working, this will be easy for him to do.

Making sure this stays true we have created this ticket: https://github.com/TheTorProject/ooni-probe/issues/161

## Next steps

OONI team will finish development on oonib, tag a release and test it with the deployment scripts.

# Issue of backend collector mapping server side reports

I explained the rationale behind having the test helpers keyed to a collector.

As long as we make it that you report to the collector run by the test helper you used we will be able, in future versions, to collect also reports from the backend side.

# Slight delay on this weeks milestone

We are a bit behind on the next milestone, but we have however a bit of buffer with the one before the least authority audit starts.

We will finish it by this week, but we will not change the date on the github milestone. It is just expected to be closed on the 25th.

# Merging of wiki with ooni-spec

We agreed that the wiki is going to go into the ooni-spec repository (https://github.com/TheTorProject/ooni-probe/issues/159?source=c)

## Next steps

Merge the wiki into the ooni-spec repository and add a link in the wiki front page pointing to it's new location.


If you think I missed something feel free to append your comments to this email.
