+<b>Implement a torrent-based scheme for downloading Thandy packages</b>
+<br />
+is a relatively new software to allow automatic updates of Tor and related
+software. Currently, there are very few users, but we expect Thandy to be
+used by almost every Tor user in the future. To avoid crashing servers on
+the day of a Tor update, we need new ways to distribute new packages
+efficiently, and using libtorrent seems to be a possible solution. If you
+think of other good ideas, great - please do let us know!<br />
+We also need to investigate how to include our mirrors better. If possible,
+there should be an easy way for them to help distributing the packages.
 <b>Bring up new ideas!</b>
