[tbb-dev] Fwd: [tor-project] We need project ideas for GSoC 2017!

Here are some ideas I'd be willing to mentor if anyone thinks they're good/bad:

- Creating a Crash Reporter and accompanying backend

- Privacy-preserving metrics gathering (RAPPOR + opt-in) - this might
be too ambitious though...

- .onion, HTTP/2, Alt-Srv investigation - An idea of speeding up sites
by serving them over a .onion with HTTP2 using the Alt-Srv header,
probably with judicious use of server push

- Security Slider Enhancements (Putting more features in FF behind the
slider) - this one is probably not ambitious enough

Hi all! This week I'm getting our ducks in a row to apply for Google
Summer of Code 2017...


I just trimmed our volunteer page of projects that were done last year
and sadly that doesn't leave us with much. We need mentors and project

Got anything you'd care to mentor this summer? If so please let me know!
Just send me a description like the ones on the following and I'd be
happy to add it to our site...


Please note that all projects must have two mentors, one of which is
an established tor person. If you're not part of our internal community
that's fine, but please find a core developer to co-sponsor your
project and act as a secondary mentor.

Thanks! -Damian
