Hello everyone,

I'm actually declaring two developer parties: a big one and a small one.

The big one is Thursday Oct 14th from 18:00 to 20:00 UTC. That's 11am
for west coast US folks and 2pm for east coasters. It will be in
#tor-dev on The agenda is pretty simple and
straightforward: let's figure out what we're all working on 'til the end
of the year, and see how we can help each other out.

The small one is taking place this Thursday, Oct 7th, from 16:00 to
18:00 UTC also in #tor-dev on This one is focused on
Thandy development that needs to be done over the course of the next six
months. I expect most of the discussion to be between me, Nick, and
Sebastian, but everyone is welcome to join.

Quoting Nick's previous email about developer parties, for people new to
the concept:
