+Additional capabilities are needed for assisted updates of all the Tor
+related software for Windows and other operating systems. Some of
+features to consider include:
+1) Integration of the <a
+Python library</a>
+for authenticated HTTPS downloads. 2) Adding a level of indirection
+between the timestamp signatures and the package files included in an
+update. See the "Thandy attacks / suggestions" thread on or-dev.
+3) Support locale specific installation and configuration of assisted
+updates based on preference, host, or user account language settings.
+Familiarity with Windows codepages, unicode, and other character sets
+is helpful in addition to general win32 and posix API experience and
+Python proficiency.
