+One huge category of work is adding features to our <a

+relay addresses</a> to users that can't reach the Tor network

+If you want to get more into the guts of Tor itself (C), another problem

+This project could involve a lot of research and design. One of the big
 challenges will be identifying and crafting approaches that can still
 resist an adversary even after the adversary knows the design, and
 then trading off censorship resistance with usability and robustness.
