instead of the above ranking system, I think my ranks mainly represent
how much priority each item should receive IMO. I think all the ideas
stated are good and aligned with the OONI agenda.

Also, some tasks are easier than others, so even though I think that
the "pub-sub system" would be a good thing to have, I think improving
the OONI website will probably take much less time and its equally

Also some tasks are connected. So for example, if you go ahead with
the plan to make good quality rasperry-pi images, then it should be
followed by the "adopt an ooni-probe" idea.

I mainly gave priority to tasks that give more visibility to the data
collected so far and in the near future (visualizations, better
website, monthly reports, etc.). At the same time it's important to
get more vantage points and *stable* measurement sources.

Hopefully this is useful, and I will be glad to talk about this more
in person.

Have a good development time!

(5: high priority,
 0: no priority)
